    Is there a way to get those files without torrent? I rly hate torrent, never used it and never want to use it. Searching for the 2.1.0 ctrtransfer EUR file, aeskeydb.bin file, fbi-2.4.2-injectable.zip file and the data_input_v3.zip file.

    AFAIK, there are no mirror links because those files are copyrighted content, hence why they're only available as torrents. Just download Deluge or whatever the guide mentions and uninstall it after you get done with the process.

    Specially in Germany, I always take extra good care here, but if you live in a city with a famous TU and they have DC++ you might find those files there

    Well, according to you profile you are from Germany right? So a TU, Technical University, like in Berlin, Darmstadt, Aachen etc, and in most cities full of students we use DC++ which is a P2P programm, I used it in Hamburg and found the CTR for US, so you might be lucky

    The torrents on 3ds.guide are safe. Otherwise, we wouldn't recommend the guide. They are 10000000% safe.

    ... The torrents on 3ds.guide do not link to a torrent site, so you won't find PC torrents there. Just download the torrents from 3ds.guide and go about your business. :/
    The app is a hit and miss for quite a few people and Quantumcat knows this.

    Just want to explain what exactly a torrent is, so people do not get confused. So when you want to download a regular file it involves 2 steps. Uploading the file to a server online, and the other person downloading it. Sometimes though, the files are copyrighted, so they cannot be uploaded without being taken down. This is where torrents come in. What a torrent does is, instead of being hosted on a server, the file is hosted directly on somebody's computer. This avoids server costs and worries of the file being taken down. The reason why torrents get a bad rep is because of torrent sites that offer pirated games. Since games are copyrighted content, people use torrents instead of regular download links. Many of these links though are scammers trying to get people to download viruses advertised as a game. 3ds.guide on the other hand offers perfectly safe firmware files that i have torrented in the past, and can confirm they are 100 percent safe and virus free.

    The actual downloading should work fine, it's just having it extract the archives and placing them in the correct folder structure that needs work. Unfortunately my uni semester started a few weeks ago and with 3 subjects and full time work I don't have time to work on it anymore, or at least for the next few months. So it has been handed over to @Olmectron to fix that part, and also I think he had a vision for making it look a lot nicer (see his fork).
