    I know you can boot luma 3ds without an sd card but how are you supposed get small games on the sd card and copy them to the ctr nand.

    I watched tcpixel's video about no sd card luma cfw by the way.

    Find or make a .cia file of the game/application/whatever. Use FBI to navigate to that file, then press A to install it.
    That's the best I can give you. (Sort of)

    You need the game in an installable format. Use https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-ultimate-gba-vc-injector-for-3ds.438057/ to do so, or find some ready made .cia files on the internet. Then, copy the .cia files of the games you want to install onto your 3DS's SD card. Then, using FBI, navigate to where the .cia file is located on your 3DS's SD card, and press A, followed by 'Install CIA', to install it.

    Oh. Don't think you can do that. Ask Smea, he'll know.
