    Text tutorial: Step One: You have to download the files in this google drive link I setup for you. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwBPgu6E-05GeTl3UmdTNFVDUUk When done, you move the 3ds folder and .3dsx file to the root of your sd card.
    Step Two:When done with that, you go to soundhax.com and input your region and console. Move the .m4a file to the root of your sd card.
    Step Three: Go to this link. https://smealum.github.io/3ds/#otherapp You will get a .bin file and move it to yout sd card. Rename it to otherapp without removing the .bin. When done with all those steps.
    Step Four: Get a legit CIA which I will not provide a link for. Google is always there for you. Make a CIA folder and paste the legit CIA in that folder. Now you can eject your sd card and place it in your 3ds.
    Step Five: When done, go to Nintendo Sound and open it. Wait until the SD Card is recognized and press A on it. You will see a nedwill file and press A. If you followed all these steps, the Homebrew Launcher should load up. It may not load up the first try but keep on trying.
    Step Six: When it loads, go down and you should see an application which is named FBI. Press A on it and it should load up. When it loads up, you click on SD and go to your CIA folder, click on your .CIA file and click on the option "Install and delete CIA" and when its done. Exit out of FBI and homebrew and when you boot into your home menu and boom, New software has been added, and it will be the Legit CIA file you installed.

    Free games are NOT legit CIA. Legit CIA are titles with a Nintendo signature like system titles (Home menú, 3dsound, miimaker, etc) and PRELOADED games bundled with consoles (3DS pokémon edition, Animal Crossing edition, etc)...

    The funniest part, is when you realize he doesn't tell you to run an ARM11 exploit such as fasthax.
    You'll just get this screen, that reminds me of my 11.0 days..

    Isn't it useful to those who want to use .CIA files, but don't want to mess with CFW and A9lh stuff? I mean is it possible to install any .CIA using this method or not?

    It's good for non-techy people who just want to play pokemanz or install it for their young kids. It's always nice to have options, thanks for putting this guide together.

    Side question: can legit cias be installed on 11.3?

    No, you can only install the small amount of games that have been released preloaded on 3ds models (mainly special editions). They have to be "legit".

    No, but only because there's no ARM11 exploit yet for 11.3

    i think this is useful to people like me that doesn't want to hack the 3ds, and only want to play a few games. for me it's good this method, as from time to time buy games, but sometimes can afford new ones.

    Try running Kernel Exploit before FBI.

    --
    This guide is literally for those who can't be bothered to mess around with CFW, however there aren't actually many legit CIAs so there's limited choice on what you're playing for free, without CFW. I recommend installing CFW if you're still on 11.2 or below with 3ds.guide.
