    Do I need to restore my NAND with «NAND Restore (kkep A9LH)» or just «NAND Restore» ? :D

    Be safe and use NAND Restore (Keep A9LH)

    I should note that there is a thread for these types of questions stickied at the top of this sub-forum's page. If you could use that for any more questions you have, that would be appreciated. Thanks!

    But I don't understand why my 3DS is bricked because I attempted to modifi my HomeMenu, but FBI has refused the file.
    So the file is not installed, but my 3DS is bricked. :O

    I dunno if this was modified on FBI 2.X but on 1.X FBI would first delete the title and only after that it would try to install the CIA contents if you choose to overwrite an existent title.

    Since you can't boot to homemenu you can only restore your NAND backup using the keep A9LH option to actually fix your 3DS.

    But about knowing what "file system a CIA will replace", on FBI 2.X I think that it actually shows you the TitleID that the CIA is trying to use, I can't remember if FBI 1.X does the same.
    You can search the TitleID of system titles on this list https://3dbrew.org/wiki/Title_list

    I don't think 1.x shows you, it just does it.

    Yeah that happens a lot when you modify homemenu. It's very finicky sometimes. I would download a fresh copy of homemenu with 3DNUS, install that and then install the modified home menu.
