    I love FBI dearly, but is literally going to take days. Is there any faster alternative?

    Nope.
    Leave it overnight with a batch operation (All in folder) or something.

    Yes, guys, days. Only 7 out of 27 complete when I woke up. No kidding.

    I'm using a high-grade SD card. :P Don't remember exactly which kind.

    Probably an eBay microsd or something if it meets the class 10 u1 specs

    From personal experience microsds under class 10 u1 are shitty for this kind of things

    I use BigBlueMenu and it works WAY faster than FBI or DevMenu could only wish to go.

    Sandisk Ultra 64GB MicroSD XC. It's legit. Purchased from Best Buy from my knowledge. I bought it from someone I lived with who needed brand name everything (He passed away in January from Cancer g-bless).

    Then it's dying/ you didn't format it properly/ something is wrong with your Emunand partition.

    Ehh, I've sorta noticed that DevMenu takes a bit longer than BBM to install CIAs and to open.

    Just because they covered it up doesn't mean it's gone

    I have noticed the o3ds takes longer to install cias than the n3ds
    Nasa shows speed and on o3ds its between 700 and 1000kbs and on n3ds its between 1700 and 2000kps sometimes faster(seems to speed up the larger the file)
