    By using a youtube tutorial I managed to downgrade my old 3DS XL and Install some games in my SD card. But know no matter how hard I have looked for tutorials I haven't been able to do these things I want:

    1.- Where in the SD card is a game installedso if I can delete one I can do that?
    2.- How do I uninstall a game?
    3.- Is it possible to uninstall a game to free space in the SD card without loosing the progrees of that game if I want to reinstall it to continue playing it later? What I mean is, for example, I remember de R$ in the Nintendo DS Mirco SD made a file tht was the save and you could back it up in your computer.

    Thanks for your help.

    1- main data for the game is stored under the Nintendo 3DS folder, no need to delete anythign from here. Uninstalling the game via FBi would take care of that.
    2- Use FBI to uninstall a game
    3- Hmm I'm inclined to say yes, the save that is kept after uninstalled but I'm not sure. I'd recommend backing up the save file using JK's Save Manager before uninstalling the game https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-jks-savemanager-homebrew-cia-save-manager.413143/

    You can't delete games and back up saves normally via system settings > data management. I recommend JKSM to backup saves though, but deleting games via systems settings is perfectly fine.

    3. You can also backup the save in HOME Menu.

    And please, for your own 3DS' sake, don't ever use a YouTube tutorial again.

    Im a bit worried by the fact you used a youtube tutorial, as there is a chance it was very out of date. You are running 11.2 sysnand with luma cfw correct?

    I used the 3ds,guide, but something in it was confusing to me, so I used a yt tutorial that followed the 3ds,guide tutorial, and brokedown into several parts of it to insure that the 3ds wouldn't brick.

    In your basement Dick Size: 5 meters.
    1. You can uninstall via settings, you can even keep the save so if you install it again it will restore.
    2. When was the video tutorial made?

    Hi: Please tell me if there are any good NDS, GBA, NES, SNES and GB/GBC emulators for homebrew for the 3DS and if there is a homebrew app like moonshell is for the NDS to hear mp3 music files. Thanks.

    Just look around the homebrew side of the forum I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for. For music, why not use the 3DS music player? it is not the best but it gets the job done I guess, haven't seen any other media player around... not that I've looked either.
