Follow this guide to hack your 3DS: https://3ds.hacks.guide/

Depending on your system version, you can use Soundhax or Seedminer to hack your 3DS without soldering or using a flashcart.

okay it was a mini nightmare but i did it ... but how do i install FBI please help im so0 close

Multiple ways to do it, but what I would do is select the FBI .cia file from within GM9 and then select the option to mount the image. You can then go and browse the image and find a <alphanumerics>.app file. You can then select that, click "NCCH options", and click "Inject in H&S".

You will then be able to launch FBI from the Health and Safety app. From that point you can install everything you need.

Once you're done with everything, you can reset H&S back to its original form from within GM9.

the youtube video
That was your mistake. Don't follow Youtube videos. Many of them are out of date, incomplete, and inaccurate.

You were given a link to https://3ds.hacks.guide/ . All the instructions you need are there.

If you do not have the patience to follow instructions, then you probably shouldn't be installing CFW, because it's easy to make big mistakes if you're impatient.

It sounds like you have installed the HBL to your 3DS.

When you install apps on the 3DS, the system creates a "ticket" for that app. It has been found in the past that if you have tickets from non-official apps on your system, Nintendo can recognize it and ban your console from online services. I'm not sure how often they ban 3DS's nowadays (pretty much dead at this point), but for me at least I try to install only backups of legitimate titles/tickets.

So for me, I only ever use the H&S injection method. You can inject either FBI, HBL, or Checkpoint into H&S without any issue, and it maintains its valid ticket ID. After I'm done using them, I just restore H&S.

Given that, I can't really help you with HBL. For using FBI, I would very much recommend just injecting it into H&S, though. My understanding is that there are some apps that have system-level permissions (H&S is one of them), and that if you don't launch FBI from one of those contexts, it may not be able to work correctly.

* Citation needed on everything I said here as the scene changes regularly and this is also off the top of my head.

That tells you how to inject into H&S and the following section is on how to restore H&S afterwards.

One last thing if you don't mind people.... What's the largest Mico SD card .. I can put in my 3DS...?
1 TB (both standard and micro) is the largest capacity that's available in today's market, but at that size, sheer cost and loading times would make using something that massive very impractical.

If you're going for a horder's delight build, 128 GB is the ideal size, price point (~$15-20), and acceptable performance when coupled with 64 KB cluster size. The largest successfully tested size are 256 GB cards, but the loading lag is noticeable even with 64 KB cluster size. I suppose if you're getting a card that big, you intend to later use it on a Nintendo Switch or share using it on a smart phone.

Check my signature; test the card with H2testw when you receive it.
