    Hi, I know, I know it's not smart to install anything on the nand, but I would really like to install freeshop on my NAND.. its 3 mb anyway so it shouldn't be such a big deal.
    Can someone help?

    And FBI disappointed me. Some versions ago you could install cias to the nand, and now you can't?
    Useful feature got deleted, and of course Steve deleted old versions of FBI from his GitHub

    Thanks...

    This is to avoid getting the NAND corrupted

    Do you have a menuhax set up? Why do you want it on the nand? You could inject FBI over HS and then install it

    Because they weren't meant to be installed to the NAND.
    And buy a bigger SD card or delete the games you don't play. You will basically only be able to install maybe one or two CIAs to the NAND. The 3DS only has 1GB of internal memory and most of that is being used by the OFW.

    Just a wild idea:
    You can try installing a dsiware higher that 3Mb and replace the game's .app with the freeshop's one.
    Do a nand's backup before anything.

    Also, freeshop need external files as the encTitleKeys.bin (I think it's called like that) so I don't know if that would be an issue

    No, I didn't mean it that way. I just want to have the freeshop app on my nand, not the games.. the games will be installed on the ad card as usual

    FreeShop wasn't made to be injected into the NAND. Seriously, buy a bigger SD card, you are acting like they are expensive.

    Listen, a friend wanted me to install a9lh but he didn't bring a SD card with him. He's a total noob how is he gonna install freeshop afterwards?

    I thought maybe I just install it on the nand so he may use it LATER when he buys himself a sd card

    I normally just blow off these kinds of comments, but you've changed your story for no reason whatsoever.
    Just install FBI for him, then show him how to install freeShop. Or when he gets an SD card, have him come back to your place to install it there.

    I could but it would be much less time wasting installing it on the nand

    And second I changed the story because I knew I would get only answers like "wait til he gets a sd card" or "show him later how" and stuff. Not related to what I asked.

    If he tried to install freeshop to the nand he could potentially brick.. just do as people say, FBI inject to HS, install, it's done.

    So you changed your story in the hopes of getting a different answer? You aren't going to get a different answer beyond the honest one. The honest answers are, you can't, don't do it, and wait until he gets an SD card. These aren't going to change no matter what you do.

    @MeAndHax Not all apps can run from NAND. FBI now auto-detects which CIA's are meant for NAND and which are meant for SD and installs them accordingly (it's not that the feature was removed, it was improved on). If you use an older version of FBI and force Freeshop to be installed to NAND, then it crashes upon trying to load it. If you really want Freeshop on NAND, you'll need to download the source code, rewrite it to support loading the config files and support files from NAND, redirect the downloads from relative paths to static paths and then recompile it making sure to use the NAND option in makerom. Then, and only then, may you be able to successfully install and run Freeshop from NAND.
