    Example: A badge forwarding you to FBI.

    If it is possible, how can we do it??

    Kind of. Something would have to be changed on how badges as a whole work, since they can currently only launch system apps with a tidhigh of 00040010, which means most retail and SD Card apps won't work. However, you may be able to forward into an Health and Safety injected FBI since it goes over a system app. Using GYTB, create a .png image with the dimensions it asks for. To make a badge function as a shortcut to a system application, put the TIDLow (the last eight digits of the titleID, which you can find using the link I provided) of the app you want redirected in the filename, between the first and second periods. Like this: "badgename.00022900.2a6e.png"

    Would this work to redirect to MicroSD management?

    It should, but no guarantee.

    You could link it to an fbi injected into health and safety. Also i am pretty sure it works with microsd management.
