    So I downloaded a large pack of around 230 GBA Cias through FBI and when they finished, many titles like FBI, and most of my games disappeared! I don't want to load my backup because I made my backup a long time ago. Is there any solution around this? I am on Luma version 9.1. I tried using FBI from the Homebrew Menu but the system just froze.

    I think it's because of the 300 title limit on the system menu, do you know if you had around 70+ games installed before installing the ~230 GBA cias?

    Yes, or you can launch FBI through Rosalina, and use it to launch more titles.

    Just don't bother with FBI and all that, delete any GBA games you aren't gonna play and it should be fine (doubt you are actually gonna play all 230 of them:P). The limit is 300 total titles with 40 DSiWare (irrelevant to this case but putting it out there). No need to delete them all, just enough to make the other icons reappear. When you go over those limits, the oldest titles get hidden every time new icons are added.
