I don't think FBI works if you're only on Homebrew.
(on homebrew, you need to use .3dsx versions, not cia)

You need CFW to install .cia, if I'm not mistaken.

I have homebrew version but it won't read ss/hg and b/w

NDS games can't be digitally installed onto the 3DS, regardless of homebrew or not.

it's not about installing a ds game (which is btw possible look it up on youtube) it's about installing a cia

No, not really.

We need more information. Are you on a specific CFW, do you have A9LH? If you're booting into FBI right, what happens when you try and install the PKSM .cia?

What custom firmware/homebrew are you using?

sound hax

technically speaking, Soundhax is merely an access point.

Are you on Homebrew Launcher or Luma3ds?

PKSM .3dx version is okay for 3ds pokemon but it doesn't register nds games

To read saves of NDS games,
you'll need TWLoader and a Dream Radar/Pokemon bank app.

If I'm not mistaken, you can't use FBI to install stuff through Homebrew Launcher,
cause not enough permissions.

You'll likely have to downgrade to 9.2 to gain permissions to get into CFW (such as Luma)

i have already tried that one is actually how i got homebrew at all

I don't think you used it all the way/followed the entire way,
since you are still on homebrew launcher, not on luma.

The guide is as straightforward and noob-friendly as it can be, if you weren't able to follow it to the point where you think you're screwed for being on 11.2, I'd honestly hold off from going any further, because while they made it as safe as possible, it's only safe if you can follow the directions 100%. Failure to follow them can have dire consequences.

I've seen it happen too many times where people were encouraged to do the a9lh install but they ended up bricking because they couldn't follow the very straightforward and noob-friendly step-by-step, I don't really want it to happen anymore.

I can't stop you, but if you do, again you have to be able to follow every step closely, otherwise you may skip or screw up something vital.

I agree with this.

Well, even if you @PokéBear decide to downgrade to 9.2 and use Luma3DS via Menuhax or browserhax,
downgrading to 9.2 is still risky/may brick, and every instruction needs to be followed.

I rather not give conflicting statements and cause confusion and lead to a brick,
as the guide is already clear cut (and constantly updated. if I were to say something, and it conflicts against the changed guide,
could be bad for future readers)
