    I can't seem to get these titles working. At all. I'm always getting the "An error has ocurred" screen.
    Setup: I recently downgraded from 10.3U. Unlinked nands: 9,2U Sysnand /10.3U Emunand.

    Things I've tried:
    • Installing the CIA file on both NANDs (via FBI, using (and not using) Pasta Mode)
    • Patching AGB_FIRM on both NANDs
    • Testing several rxTools builds. Nightly, stable ones. Including this one that supposedly works with AGB titles
    • Tried rebuilding title.db/import.db
    I'm out of ideas.

    Well, nevermind, I'm an idiot. I figured it out, sorry.

    Someone close the topic.

    yeah, share what silly mistake you made so someone else won't make the same mistake.
    unless you think that is a bad idea?

    I installed it to NAND instead of SD. :/

    Once I removed them, I installed it to SD on my sysnand and it worked perfect. After that, I installed it on my emunand, and problem solved.

    Again, I'm an idiot. Only DSIware goes to NAND, apparently.

    So you need to install it both to Sysnand SD and Emunand SD?

    Yup. If your NANDs are unlinked, yes. You need it on sysnand to run it on emunand.

    Apparently you don't need to patch AGB_FIRM. But if you do need it, here's the tutorial.

    And yes, you just install it.
