    Another little improvement request:

    When installing via QR code, when it asks "Install from the provided URL(s)?", would it be possible to make FBI actually display said URL? So you can quickly check where you're actually downloading from, and whether it's the right thing.

    Not feasible due to the number of possible number of URLs in a QR.

    Can FBI be used with basehaxx on 11.0.0-33U?

    how do you install the cia without the 3dsx? rxtools won't inject it to my emunand for some reason.
    Using 9.2 sysnand and 11.0.33 emunand btw

    fbi should be set up at the home menu to install cia only on cfw.

    @Steveice10. Can I humbly request a feature for FBI (just a hint, of course)? It would be nice if FBI could install .3ds files (i.e. cartridge dumps). At the moment, 3ds files must be converted to .cia using a PC tool and Decrypt9 but the entire process could be streamlined using only the 3DS (extrating ncchinfo.bin, generating xorpads, converting .3ds to cia and installing cia). Thanks!

    You need to have arm9 access to generate a xorpads or decrypting the .3ds and .cia. Alpha version of D9 can dump and decrypt at the same time. So you would only need to a PC to convert it to a CIA without making ncchinfo and xorpads

    Is it normal that FBI has a sub-5% boot rate on a 9.9 firmware? I've tried 20 times in a row now, only get the red flash and a black screen. No successful boot so far.

    The boot rate on anything over 9.2 is unreliable. But no launch over 20 tries you got very unlucky.

    I'm still trying. Now at 30+ unsuccessful tries. (Going to HBL via Cubic Ninja btw)

    edit: got it on the next try after posting the above. So i'm at a ~3% boot rate now, that's not a very comforting thought.

    Still utterly broken on my N3DSXL and N3DS. Experiencing the same issues as others have reported. My setup:

    A9LH (version 2 or whatever that new one is)
    SysNAND at 11.0.
    Luma3DS latest hourly
    HBL latest
    HBL Launcher loader latest
    FBI 2.3.1 3DSX in /3ds/FBI
    I did have FBI injected into H&S some time back, but have since restored H&S to original.

    Boot up my N3DSXL, select HBL Launcher. Loads up HBL. Launch FBI from HBL. Black screen.

    Tried:

    Copying new FBI files from PC to 3DS with FTP program
    Unchecking 'read only' on the files in the FBI folder on the 3DS
    Manually copying in the files onto the SD card from my PC (rather than FTP).

    I have had it boot twice, and fail every other time. All of my other HBL apps work just fine. Going back to an old version of FBI also seems to work fine.

    Is my above setup expected to work, or is one/more of my components/versions/etc not compatible?

    Thanks again for the great work!

    Then why does it sometimes work? Just not very often?

    Because it uses a very unstable exploit to gain access.

    There is literally no reason to not use the .cia of FBI if you can.

    What utter nonsense. You said that it didn't have the right permissions. If it didn't have the right permissions, it would NEVER work.

    When you say 'I have had it boot twice', have you actually installed any non-legit .cia successfully with it?

    At any rate, stop complaining and use the .cia version of FBI, it'll work every time.
