    I'm not sure i'm posting this in the right selection but hopefully someone can give me a hand if they know anything

    I recently modded my Wii U and this tool "Wii U USB Install" is what you use to download games to be installed onto the Wii U. i'm not sure i can post a link to it so i'm not going to but its an easy google search away

    Anyways, the tool also includes a way to download 3ds games, but they aren't in .cia or .3ds so i don't know how to install them. it comes in a folder with; .app (two of them), .tik, and .tmd.

    if anyone has any info in getting these games onto a 3ds it will be most great full. My 3ds is running off a CFW btw.

    Why not just use freeShop?

    USB Helper has the same amount since they both use the titlekey site.

    True, freeshop should use more than one source for their titlekeys.

    I took a look into freeshop and it looks pretty cool. Probably better if anything.
    Does it become a hassle updating the titlekeys File?

    No, it does it automatically. It uses the same site as USB Helper. The site itself has a QR code you can scan with freeShop. It'll take care of the rest.

    There is also an option to pack/unpack in USB helper, which will turn 3DS dl into CIA.

    After downloading just right click the title under "downloads" in USB helper and select pack/unpack. Then it will ask you where to save the CIA.

    But is there a way of repacking the files downloaded from WiiU helper to *.3ds? My nephew has a sky3ds card and this requires *.3ds files?
