    I've been backing up my wii games and wii u games, so I figure it was time for the 3DS. Is there a way to back up to and play 3DS games from an SD card? I know there should be a way, but when I try to google it, all I get is unanswered questions and clickbait. does anybody have any suggestions?

    Assuming you have CFW, this guide is what I used and it worked great. I could dump my 3DS cartridges and install them to my home menu with no problems.
    EDIT: You will need updated B9S versions of the tools, but the same instructions apply when actually using the tools.
