    For FAT32

    Highly doubtful. What game has a CIA over 4GB anyway? And has the CIA been trimmed already?

    As far as I'm aware Dragon Quest 8 is the biggest 3ds game at 3.5 gb so under the 4gb fat32 limit

    None, because the largest 3DS cartridges are 4 GB. Can't really trim a CIA, they don't need to be trimmed.

    it is to download a cia of 1,8GB in Boop or Socket punch. But it didn't work because it is a too bigger file so I want to split this cia into 2 and download 1 by 1.

    So does anyone know how to split a cia? I recently downloaded a rom hack that is 4.5 GB and have been unable to transfer it to my SD card due to the 4 GB limit. If anyone knows how to split cias or an alternative method to get it onto my 3ds, I would really appreciate the help.

    Can you explain what you mean? You are having trouble downloading the file?
    Or are you having trouble copying it to the SD card?

    If you have a to split a file into peices for storage or transmission on Windows, you can use 7zip.
    No way to reassemble or un7zip the file on your 3ds, though, afaik.

    EDIT: Thought about this, and the only way to bypass the SD FAT32 issue is to use homebrew that can install over a network. I have not tried this at all, but it says it supports network installation of CIA files. Please let us know how it goes :)
