    I was wondering how I could install gba CIAs because when I try to install them through FBI they successfully download but when I try to open it the GBA CIA doesn't work. Is there a fix to this?

    I'm on rxTools nightly (emuNAND)

    You need to install it to both emunand and sysnand and also install something to the NAND but i don´t remember

    Don't do that. Don't do that at all. GBA games go to the SD on both nands. The patched AGB_FIRM goes to NAND. If using a New 3DS you need to change your CFW as the RxTools GBA patch will interfere with that.

    Do not do this, only the patched AGB_Firm should be installed to NAND, the GBA games should only be installed to SD Card (repeat the install while in sysnand and emunand)

    Make sure you have the patched AGB_Firm installed to both SysNAND and EmuNAND (press L while in FBI to change destination from SD to NAND)
    Once that is done, switch destination via L to SD card then install the GBA games. Do this on both SysNAND and EmuNAND.

    Okay, but so then does that mean that I have to first install the FBI to my sysNAND?

    I need to delete it first. I want to make sure that I'm deleting the correct one. Please tell me it's the correct one (I think it is. I want to make sure before I do anything - dont want to brick another console)

    Why did you link to an image from your Gmail? This site works pretty well.There are also browser extensions for it that allow right-click uploading.

    Yeah I did. I didn't feel like installing any programs. I just want to make sure that it's the correct CIA before I delete anything

    As long as the ID matches and the filesize is close to that of the CIA, it is the right one

    Everything is good, install GBA cias to SD card while in both emunand and sysnand and you will be able to launch them while in emunand or sysnand.

    Oh wait so I only need to install it to emuNAND if I'm only going to run it from emuNAND? I usually don't use my sysNAND.

    you are required to install them to SD Card on EmuNAND and SysNAND even if you are going to run them from EmuNAND.
