    So, I'm trying to get GBA, Snes, and DSi games to run without that error message popping up.
    I went through all but one step on how to do so. But I'm stuck.
    I need to install my desired cia's to sysnand. (I already installed on the emunand) What tool do I use for this? I tried with BigRedMenu, and FBI, which didn't have the option from what I saw.

    Edit: I cam across BigBlueBox. Is that a good idea?

    Any CIA Manager works as long as you have Signature Patches.

    You need to run a .cia installer from sysnand itself.

    You need to run a CFW on sysnand. When booting the CFW, press the options menu payload button (L/Select, depending on the CFW you use) and select the Boot on SysNand option. Then use homebrew/a cia manager installed to install anything you want.

    Btw, I'd recommend you to install a9lh following pailect's guide and forget about this problem ^^

    Daaarn... why do I have to be lazy today?
    Oh, I just discovered a bunch of a9lh files on my SD. I honestly cant tell if I had accidentally installed it or not (was only aiming towards luma..cause..lazy lol)
    How can I tell if I have it or not?

    You can't install a9lh by mistake as you need to downgrade to 2.1 to install it and then restore a back up keeping it. Do you have a file called "arm9loaderhax.bin" on the root of your SD?

    Oh yeah, I didn't do that, surely.
    I do have the file you mentioned though, on the SD

    If you didn't do the a9lh proccess it's impossible to have it installed so... you must use Sysnand + ctrboot to go into emunand, am i right?

    Boot to sysnand, run homebrew launcher, run PastaCFW, then boot to sysnand again, run CIA installer, install the CIAs for your VC games, reboot to Emunand and run the games. They should work now.

    Then I'd recommend you to install a9lh and inject your emunand into your sysnand to have only one nand and forget about installing problems xD

    Just do what I said ^^

    Masher's way also works but installing A9LH is good, too.
