    Nope you need to use the 3DS regardless.

    I used to be able to install cia files wirelessly, but that just doesnt work anymore sadly.

    Thats bad. Because the write speed of the O3DS is not very fast... I get like 400 kb/s for 5 minutes and then just 100 kb/s.

    If you know of any workarounds please let me know. But I havent had the need for cia files anymore since titledb exists.

    I just installed a cia wirelessly by ntr 3.5+kit-kat on a 11.4 n3ds. seems like the kit-kat proyect is discontinued, but it still works, and I refuse to believe that anyone here is unable to search for a old version across the internet

    You can use a FTP like Boop to send .cia files directly from your computer to your 3DS, if that's what you're talking about.

    Yeah ^. Boop as well as Socket Punch still work flawlessly with FBI (program depends on version) to install CIAs remotely. You can still use a regular FTP to just transfer them to the SD card over wi-fi without installing them.

    No, I want to install a cia on the SD without using the 3ds. so i put my SD in my PC to install the CIA on it, so i dont need to fight with the write speed of the O3DS

    You can't install CIAs to your SD card period without using a 3DS. I think you mean "install" as in put them on the SD card wirelessly, which you can do with an FTP server. . They are placed ON the SD card to be installed by a title manager like FBI.

    So like I said, use an FTP to put the CIAs on your SD card through Wi-Fi, then go to FBI on your 3DS and install it. (Which I might add will take longer depending on your internet speed than doing it manually). Otherwise using boop or something similar will transfer and install the CIA to your SD card all at once, so it cuts the wait time in half. That's about as good as you're going to get. You have to deal with the crappy R/W speed when you're actually installing the game anyway which is why if it's slow it's easier to use boop.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    if i had infinite money the last thing that would come to my mind was getting a 3ds
    would be too busy with blackjack and hookers...
    ok maybe i would buy nintendo and end the "switch" nonsense, would buy sega, melt the 2 companies together, create the nintendo dreamcast 2
    and then buy google and apple
    toy with apple, like release a new apple phone every month and see who are the hard core fans that still buying their products, would continue this every month each adding something meaningless and removing some great feature (like apple did with the phone jack)
    after like 10 months create the iphone NR (the iphone not rechargeable) everyone could get it in stores, would need to replace to a new battery like 3-4 times a week depending on use, would make a deal with duracell


    damn, i would create the illuminati if it doesn't exist and play god.

    but i wouldn't even get a n3ds.
