    I used TinyFormat to format my sysnand, is there a way for me to get back my installed cias? The SD card has not been formatted so everything is still there, just not accessible by this sysnand

    No, because you formatted it, which means it's going to use a new folder inside Nintendo 3DS now instead of the last one.

    IF, you have a NAND backup of the NAND that was using the last folder inside Nintendo 3DS, you could restore it and everything will show up and be fine.

    Ah, didn't even think of that, glad I had a backupm from a week ago.

    I had a few games installed after the backup. FBI detects them, but I can't run them and they don't appear on my home screen. Any ideas?

    Because they were installed after the backup, you could say in a sense that it was never installed in the first place, but theorectically speaking, if you re-install the cia's they'll be good to go.

    Or you can try running tikShop. All games in the database should reappear, and you'll only have to reinstall ones that are not.
