    I am using reinand v3.3 on emunand 10.7u and I was wondering if it is at all possible to delete or remove programs from the desktop without entering system settings. Is there a homebrew cia program that can get access to all the programs running on the 3ds? Perhaps CTRXplorer is capable of doing that?

    FBI can, just cycle to remove title.

    Also, be very VERY sure you know the title ID that you are deleting. I accidentally deleted native_firm once. Luckily I was able to fix the issue without a hardmod, just triple check.

    is possible with xplorer, but it's not a good option.(It only delete the encrypted game files under Nintendo 3DS dir.


    Devmenu, FBI are better options

    I should have said that I don't want to remove just the cia apps but the apps pre installed by Nintendo.

    And the pre installed apps are located where exactly? In the 3DS dir?

    please go search the title id for system apps.
    and press R 2 times to switch to delete titles mode after you enter fbi

    Open FBI, hit R to get to uninstall titles, then hit L to switch from SD to NAND.

    Like I said, be very VERY sure what you are deleting will not ruin your shit, yo

    I see all the titles listed but unfortunately fbi is not show the full number of the titles, so I think I will hide the apps on the desktop and not delete the wrong thing.

    I recently deleted the wrong titles on my 3DS. Now I just get a black screen on boot. I'm not sure what needs to be done to get it back to life. All I know is that it's not bricked because I was able to test out an A9LH payload on a fresh SD card. Any thoughts?

    Restoring a backup or use the CTRNAND 9.2 transfer option in Plailect's guide then re-update if you have no backup.
