I want to know if installing .cia games or just usage can brick your 3ds.
Emunand is booted from the SD card. So it will not
Nothing on your emunand can brick your 3ds.
Continuous usage of sysnand (even in 100% Nintendo-approved ways) will, though!
What things can cause your 3ds to brick?
Writing to the sysnand or upgrading/downgrading carries a chance if you aren't careful.
Nope, Everything is done on the SD card, it isn't a physical chip it's emulated worst that could happen is it'll need formatted.
^ Well, it will definitely increase usage (and wear leveling on many cards is questionable), but it's still easier to change a 20 € part you can buy online than an effectively custom soldered chip, amirite?
This is a bit silly. you aren't going to approach the write limits of these memory devices questionable wear leveling or otherwise, when used in applications like these.
I remember when I used to worry about writing too much to my laptop. But it's still fine. You'll probably brick your 3DS before you come close to breaking the SD card
Using the 3ds normally will do this as well.
Technically, yes it will increase usage, but not enough to be significant (by the time it will be, I'm pretty sure there will be a new Nintendo handheld out). This sounds like when people first heard SSDs had limited writes. Technically they do, but that number is so high that it won't be reached reasonably anytime soon.
you would be more likely to brick your 3ds by doing something stupid rather than wearing out an sd card from writing to it so many times.
