    Hello everyone, forgive me if this is an easy fix, I'm rather new to the 3DS CFW scene :)

    I recently installed rxtools on my old 3DS and it works great, installs 3ds .cia files through the fbi thingy on emunand (which I have unlinked) and they all work fine, but when i try and install GBA .cia files they install fine but when i try and run them it just comes up a black background with an error message. I googled around and found that I also need to install the FBI installer on the sysnand but even though the injection installation of it through rxtools runs fine and i dont get any error messages, when i reboot straight into sysnand and try and run it, it just comes up the typical health and safety messages and no fbi cia installer runs...am i missing something? any help would be very much appreciated as I would really like to be playing Mother 3 right now :)

    Here are my versions and such if needed :

    Sysnand version 4.5.0-8E
    emunand version RX3D 9.9.0-26E
    rxtools 2.6

    Thanks in Advance!

    Hm, are you running it in RXmode Sysnand? If you try to run it in an unmodified Sysnand, I'm pretty sure it doesn't work. Although, I believe that when I tried running it in normal Sysnand, it simply looped the 3DS logo.

    Yes and It's the same problem...just to double check thats when you hold R when rxtools in booting through the DS profile screen and then selecting the rx mode sysnand option?

    Yep, that is indeed how you launch it. In that case, I have no idea. The only other thought I have is that perhaps you accidentally injected it into the emundand? I'm have only slightly more experience than you do, so I suppose I can't offer that much help. =P

    I did it multiple times and made sure to press "x" for injecting it to sysnand so im sure I did i correctly...could it be the way I've been trying to do it? I placed the 2 fbi injection files from the rxtools zip folder along with the fbi.cia file from the FBI zip...could I have been doing the wrong thing? :P

    I'd try to check myself, but I bricked my 3DS yesterday so I'll be 3DS-less for the next week or so. >.>

    The last thing I can think of checking is the version and region of fbi that you are using.

    Did you install AGB_FIRM to your sysNAND?

    Yes that was the first thing I tried when I couldn't get the GBA games to work on emunand, It installed okay as far as i could tell but I still get the error message, thats what made me google some more and find that i need to install them on sysnand instead which has brought me to my current problem :P

    Edit: oh but I installed it on emunand not on the sysnand, as my sysnand doesnt have a cia installer

    You need to launch Ninjhax, then launch Pasta in sysNAND mode, then launch Ninjhax again, then launch FBI, change to NAND and install AGB_FIRM. There may be a system title you need to remove in sysNAND for it to install correctly though. It's all in the guide.

    Ninjhax and pasta are not terms I am familiar with, all I have installed is Rxtools which I got to run without any use of carts or game exploits but through the browser exploit and using the gateway stuff...

    Edit: and fbi installer wont run on sysnand for whatever reason

    Hm, I had read that you no longer needed to modify AGB_Firm with the latest version of rxTools. I can confirm that I did not need to and succesfully installed a romhack of Pokemon Fire Red to my Sysnand.

    Ninjahax is what we call an exploit that is run using the game Cubic Ninja. A copy of Cubic Ninja, or a Sky3DS cart with a Cubic Ninja rom is required to use it. As for Pasta, it is a cfw. I'm pretty sure that it is partially implemented into rxTools 3.0b, but it also still a standalone firmware that can be used.

    Do you think upgrading to rxtools 3.0b would be helpful? and if you do update it, does it keep your gamesaves/emunand stuff etc?

    I honestly have no idea if upgrading it will do a thing. It is probably worth a shot though. And no, everything else is unaffected.

    Edit: Here is a link to it.
    rxTools 3.0 beta 7

    Do GBA games work at all in the EmuNAND?

    If you mean in general, I believe that they do if they are also installed to the Sysnand.
