    Okay, this is my third Thread. You guys must be sick of me at this point. And I have another problem. This time it's with the FreeShop.

    Okay, so I had problems with FBI with installing CIAs. It kept giving me an error. I started a Thread over this, and people helped me by saying I should go ahead and install FreeShop. And I succeeded. Now here comes the problem. After I downloaded Asure Striker Gunvolt 2 and Shovel Knight, every download I did after that ended up in an Error. And the download icons on the little avatar for the game that you want to download, would turn from White to Pinkish-Red.

    I'm having trouble with this. A lot of trouble. I also can't find a fix for this. Many tell me to install TikSweeper but it does nothing for me. Many people tell me it's because of the SD card, but no matter wich Micro SD I use, nothing changes.

    Is there a fix for this problem?
    Is there a better way to get working CIAs?

    If you want more info on my problem, here's a link to my last Tread were I adressed this problem first:

    You could go to 'that iso site' to get CIAs.

    A new election would probably resolve it :creep:
    Jokes aside I think you should manually download the cias and install them through FBI or Dev manager.

    Did you run TikSweep like we told you?

    If so, you might be on a frankenfirmware, update from system settings.

    I'll try. I just wanted this conversation moved to this thread. The other one was getting messy.

    Well, I'll explain it. Posting a new thread for a separate issue is acceptable, but repeatedly posting the same apology is not allowed. (Spam)

    Okay, I had a restart on my system because suddenly It didn't want to boot anymore. All my stuff is now gone, including the games i had Installed succesfully. Tried to Reinstall Freeshop as it was missing too, and now FBI gives me a error on that too. WHAT IS GOING ON?!

    As a newbie to modding I do not understand how you guys can ceep this up so long. I'm frustrated beyond beliefs. Ready to throw that system in the trash can.

    Are you using emunand or sysnand? A9lh or no al9h? I second the frankinware possibility.

    Sysnand, not sure about A9lh because that part was done by my brother who now also is clueless on what to do. I'll ask him tomorrow.

    @OP: Just so you know, a frankenfirmware is when you have a failed system update or downgrade, and it's partly on one firmware and partly on another. They're usually a buggy mess requiring a lot of guesswork to fix.
    But as long as there's no frankenfirmware, an a9lh system is no different in stability than a normal one. And I'm talking about actual stability here, not Nintendo's changelog stability.

    I've got a Question, are there any other CIA installers made for the 3DS? I hate how hard it is to get this Freeshop setup.

    I don't mean to be rude - but I'd say there is a really good CIA installer, called eShop, built right in.

    If you do backup CIAs from a cartridge, you can also use FBI, it's just a CIA installer.

    Anyway, did you try doing what a couple people here have suggested - going into the settings app and updating?

    Yeah, I did. With the result that Freeshop now does not start up. It gets stuck at the homebrew splash screen. Is there a fix?

    Try using tikSHOP to get tickets and then just use the eshop to get games.

    Wow cool. But is that safe? I'm afraid those Nintendo Ninjas show up at my door.

    Yeah, as of right now nintendo stores the tickets locally, so you're just making it seem like you bought the games. Without some in-depth searching, they wont know. Nobody has been banned for this yet, so it *should be fine

    *i'm not responsible if you get banned tho

    Guys, I first off want to thank you all for sticking with me. You guys show some serious passion for this. Even when you need to help out stupid noobs such as me.
