    As the title says, i have another 3ds that is functionally better, I want to know if its possible to swap the sd cards of the systems and have it carry over the installed cia's and such with the sdcard.

    Apps and games installed to the system are encrypted per console, you can't just swap SD cards. To change the encryption and move your data to another console, you need to do an official system transfer.

    If they both have CFW, you might be able to swap movable.sed files, which would allow you to swap SD cards. Correct me if I'm wrong obviously.

    He could copy the stuff to the PC and put it in the other SD, though. He'd be able to swap.
