    I recently installed Custom theme cias onto my 3ds... Had used howling theme tool. And this happened:
    1. Lost my official bought themes. I have an SD card backup before the installation.
    2. Cannot redownload my bought Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Today when I opened eShop, if shows "Initializing" and stuff, like it would happen when you launch it for the first time.
    What's wrong? How do I fix this?

    I don't use .CIA themes (I use CHMM2), so I'm not 100% for sure on this, but iirc, one of the risks with doing so is the potential loss of such data.

    It screws with something saved to NAND, I think.

    Did you also go to the eShop before/after you used Howling Theme Tool? I don't know if it works the same with custom theme CIAs, but when you enter the eShop, any DLC or theme CIAs you don't own are removed.

    Yes I did, that must explain the mysterious disappearance of those themes... But the Smash Bros DLCs didn't disappear?

    Yeah, sorry I don't know too much about it, but I figured I'd chip in what little I have heard a bit of.

    It corrupted your themes which messes up the eshop.

    What you want to do is go to system settings. Data management. Nintendo 3DS. Downloadable content.

    Find the ones for themes and delete them.

    This should fix your problem.

    To prevent this problem from happening again do as Arcadian Fox said and use CHMM2 for custom themes.

    You can probably re-download them from the theme shop.

    After you delete the corrupted themes you should be able to visit the theme shop and re download them
