    Hello, I want to install Pokemon Alpha Sapphire but here is the thing :
    The game take 1.6GB and the free space of my SD card is 2.2Gb.
    As we are obliged to take into account the size of the cia file, I'll need 1.6x2 = 3.2 GB free space..

    So, my question is simple : Is it possible to install the cia file "manually" to the SD card (with the computer), so that the cia file size is not taken into account ?
    I hope there is a solution ^^

    Thanks in advance :)

    Please do not forget you can remove the cia file from your CIA'S folder once you've installed them. I too was running short on space when I noticed I still had a couple of games on my 3ds sd card I already installed!
