Hello does anyone know why my home icons take ages to load after installing cfw?
I only have two games on the sd card and then fbi and luma updater and that's about it.
My sd card is a sandisk extreme pro 95mbs so that shouldn't be the problem?

Is there a way to do like a factory reset without losing the cfw and arm9?

It is just a general side effect of using cfw or possibly due to your sd card. Formatting won't remove a9lh or cfw. What size is your sd card and what is its cluster size?

Tested the card in h2test and It passed with no errors at all, had a green box afterwards. The speeds were around 80-90mbs which is about right for the card. I'll try a system format then and see if that improves anything. How will I install fbi and every back on there after the system format just make a back up of the sd card and copy and paste it back on after the system format?

The size of the card is 32gb and I formatted with a 32kb cluster size as advised in the guide

You can format it with 64Kb cluster size (although I don't recall if Windows will do it)

I don't think you can do it with the default partition tool. I'm not sure of alternatives (thought alternatives certainly can).

I also feel like I should note that the 3DS doesn't support the 95MB/s that the sdcard reports as it would utilize UHS to achieve that (which the 3DS does not support). As for home icons loading slow, how many do you have? I noticed mine load slow on emunand but I've been on CFW for so long and I don't really care.

Can you elaborate on "slow"? How fast did it load before with how many icons? How fast does it load now with how many icons?

Well before the cfw everything was there loaded ready. Since the install it takes a while for them to pop up. I have about 15 maybe less. It's not a massive issue but just annoying. Biggest problem I have at the moment is after the system memory format I don't know where to start to get fbi and luma3ds updater back on there.

Just grab the fbi zip from GitHub and launch it via homebrew to install the cia version.

Or go to the guide and follow the steps to inject it with Decrypt9:

Lovely thanks I'll give that a go now. What's the different between the injecting and cia install?

I think with Decrypt9 you can inject FBI into the Health and Safety app, otherwise a typical CIA install has its own icon and such :).

Edit: Ninja'd, or maybe just this?

Different procedures, only.

This is the correct answer.

Well everything is kinda fucked now lol
FBI shows the FBI icon but actually loads into health and safety. I'm missing a health and safety icon altogether.
It's still slow and laggy loading the icons.

Is there a easy step to just get back to the 4.5 firmware I was on before I installed cfw and updated and get everything back to 100% stock? Then I can go through all steps again and take my time with it.

Update, an alternative (and possibly easier) way to get FBI back is install the dev branch of luma (copy the corresponding arm9loaderhax.bin from the release zip), hold select when booting, then enable the SVC check option. You can then use NASA to install the FBI CIA from the HBL.
