    I've always just placed on sd card and used fbi. But I know there's a way to install it via QR code. But is there any other ways and how?

    Between insane and insecure
    There's different CIA installers. You can also install them through wifi using FBI.

    What's the best way? Just don't like needing double the space on a sd card for cia file and room to install.

    Using the program called Shameless, you can generate a qr code for every game and then scan it with fbi

    All of the ways have their own glaring flaws

    Direct copy to SD:
    Fastest
    Double Space
    SocketPunch:
    Slow
    Doesn't require double space
    FTP:
    Slow
    Requires double space
