    So after a ton of work, I got my 3DS back to normal (almost). I'm missing all my games and when I check my settings, it says they're there but they have a gray X on them. I can't backup my saves using JKSM or the save-data backup but the tickets are installed. All I have backed up is my enctitlekeys.bin, dectitlekeys.bin, seeddb.bin, and a ticket.db. If anyone knows how I can reinstall them, that'd be great.

    Are you sure the tickets are installed? You may need to delete them and reinstall them. RIP saves. :cry:

    Try installing the tickets again. If you used freeShop or CIAngel to install them to start with then tikShop will work. If you can't get them working and have to reinstall then you'll lose the saves.

    You know your problem is easily solvable, right?

    If those apps aren't working just install the ticket files manually by downloading the .tik file or scanning a QR code associated to a ticket.
