    That's good to know. Is there anyway I could make the installed CIA titles visible, though?

    Did you transfer your emuNAND to your sysNAND following the emuNAND transfer guide? It sounds like you didn't.

    I'm not sure. I just followed the guide up to step 14, and then carried on from section 2 of the other guide, like you suggested. I did everything within those steps.

    Edit: You're right. I missed that optional part. Am I screwed, or can I do it now? If I can format the SD then just put all the luma stuff back, I would be okay with that too. I just want the space back or the games available. Either is fine.

    You should follow the emuNAND transfer guide now.

    Are you sure its doable after the process is over? I upgraded sysnand and everything as the finalization guide suggested.

    If your emuNAND is intact, which it probably is, then you should still be able to follow the emuNAND transfer guide:

    Alright. I'll give it a spin once I get home. I'll post updates.

    Thanks a ton for your help.

    So I ended up doing as Lone_wolf said. I decided I wanted to format. So I did. Going from there, I attempted the finalize setup steps again. But after setting Homebrew launcher to the download play app, and then launching it after closing rosalina, I get an error message. As if HB can't be opened.

    Do you know if by chance you have boot.3dsx on the root of your sd card?

    If you formatted your 3DS, the Homebrew Launcher boot.3dsx was deleted from your SD card. Re-download it and put it onto the root of your SD card.

    If you aren't going to follow my advice, then I'm not going to be able to help you. Since you didn't follow my directions, it should be noted now that you still likely have your emuNAND partition on your SD card that's wasting space. If you're not going to use your old emuNAND, you should backup the contents of your SD card and delete the emuNAND partition.

    Ahh, I do not. I literally went from the finalizing page right after formatting. I made a backup of my files before formatting, should I use the same boot file?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I used a tool called mini partition wizard to completely nuke the SD card. Nothing was left. Though, I did make a backup folder on my PC just in case with all the old files.

    I'm sorry, by the way. I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do and ended up deciding that I wanted to wipe the SD card. I appreciate your help.

    Yes, place that boot.3dsx file back onto your card and try again. it should work for you.

    There is always something.

    I was doing the cleanup step at the very end of the tutorial. All went fine. Pressed start so the system would reboot. It turned off without rebooting. Now the system won't turn on at all. Blue light comes on for a sec and goes out. Screen stays dead. Check the root of the card and the boot.3dsx is still there and everything.

    Do you know if the boot.firm is still there? If its not. Go ahead and load that back to the sd card.

    This worked. I'm on luma's menu with a bunch of options. Not sure which to pick
