    When I first noticed it, I saw that it was random where it happens between all screens and modes.

    I can now produce it almost instantly going through my installed titles on nand or sd (it happens on both destinations) going to install cia on the SD card (or nand).

    I would guess that it might be taking time to load my SD card, but 2 issues with that:
    1- I only have 12 things there so it really shouldn't be taking time
    2- Didn't have this issue with 1.3.8 .. It's just with 1.4 now

    It's minor anyway the lag is like 7 seconds long. I just thought I would report it :)

    Edit: Now that I notice carefully, it takes a while to load FBI when you first run it. Which leads me to believe it is also taking a while to load the screen with "install CIA".

    I'll run 1.3.8 again to see if I get this issue again (which would make it an SD problem). If not, then I guess its a bug in 1.4

    Edit 2: Just tried 1.3.8 again, going to "install cia" loads instantly. Booting up happens instantly also. So I would say it's a 1.4 bug

    Completely forgot as I was looking at FBI's changes when creating the changelog and not ctrcommon's changes. File select screens now display basic information about the selected CIA file on the top screen. This is probably the reason why loading times are a bit longer.

    Oh wow excellent! I didn't even notice that!

    To me this is probably the most important feature in the update haha. The loading of basic info is probably the reason for the delay then. Thanks! :D

    FBI has been updated to version 1.4.1, with two minor changes.
    • Add loading screen to file lists.
    • Avoid reloading file list after exiting network installation screen.

    Is the last version of FBI compatible with rxTools 2.5.2?
    Edit: YES!

    Installed a jp cia w/ fbi on rxtools cfw but it gets stuck at the nintendo 3ds screen. Do I need something else to get through region lock? I assume I'm going to have to update the emunand, but how do I go about that?

    Yeah you need to update your emuNAND to latest version available.

    Thanks, removed the link. Could you remove it in your quote as well?

    I'm still having problems installing FBI on sysNAND. I unlinked the NANDs and everything.

    I have a suggested feature. If a title can't be installed because a newer version exists, offer to uninstall the existing title first. It will make downgrading easier, and eliminate the chance of uninstalling the wrong title.

    I am using rxTools, with an unlinked emunand updated on the last firmware version (9.8) on an european old 3DSXL. While trying to installing some (european or region free) cia content, sometimes this error pops up. It happens randomly with every cia file i have, with the progress bar at different levels every time. I'm not sure what triggers the error, but I think that the problem is not within the files, since sometimes it actually manages to finish the installation and the software works just fine.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It's visible in the top left corner of the top screen when a CIA file is selected. It shows some details like title ID, installed size, etc.
    You'll want to ask in the appropriate rxTools thread. I have nothing to do with rxTools' FBI installer.
    Sounds reasonable, I'll go ahead and try to add this.
    Your error has something to do with the filesystem, but I can't say for sure what it is since the error description is currently unknown.

    You mean i should format my SD card in a different way? It's a 32GB class 4 card, currently formatted in FAT32, i'll try with NTFS

    Yes that kind of wizard.
    No, it needs to be FAT32 or the 3DS can't read it. A reformat (still on FAT32) might help.

    FBI has been updated to version 1.4.2.
    • Add overwrite prompt when installing an already installed title.
