    Ok, firstly, I'm on a New 3ds ver. 11.0.0-33U, and i'm attempting to use FBI to install a GBA ROM (namely, Metroid: Zero Mission). I'm 99% certain that the ROM is legit. However, whenever i attempt to install the .cia file, i get the following message:
    Install failed!
    Metroid Zero Mission.cia
    Source: SOURCE_AM_START_CIA_INSTALL (0x13)
    Module: MODULE_NN_OS (0x6)
    Level: LEVEL_PERMANENT (0x1b)
    Summary: SUMMARY_WRONG_ARGUMENT (0x8)
    Description: DESCRIPTION_INVALID_COMMAND (0x2f)

    As far as extra details are concerned, my method for accessing the Homebrew Launcher is via entering the following URL on my 3ds's Internet Browser: https://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax.php and clicking on skater31hax

    The version of FBI is use is FBI 123.123
    If anyone can assist me, it would be much appreciated.
    Also, I should mention that more or less the same error appears if i try to install anything else, too.

    Short story: You can't use FBI on 11.0 without CFW.

    Well, once again, I'm nearly a total noob at this, so I'm not even really sure how to use CFW.

    You have to downgrade in order to use CFW, so you have 2 options: A) get a hardmod done, or B) find another 3DS that has CFW to do the DSiware downgrade method. Otherwise, you're SOL.

    Hm, oh well, thanks anyway. Downgrading is too risky for me...
