    Hello, I successfully installed A9LH on my New 3DS XL and updated to Sys 11.1.0-34U. I installed a few out of region games and I now have 48GB left. Here is what I have installed on my system:

    -NTR CFW
    -HomeBrew Launcher Loader
    -CIAngel
    -Luma3ds updater
    -freeShop
    -FBI
    -JK'S Save Manager

    Are there any CIA's that I should install? What do you recommend I should have? Also what essentials should I have? I really enjoy having A9LH.

    That's cool and all but then the transfer speeds would be slower. Also what if I don't have any internet?

    What you need is your PC and 3DS are both on the same WAN. The speed is very fast, so it won't be a problem.

    Yeah, for the big files, you should take microSD out and put the files on directly. But FTP Server still have it advantage if you want to do small stuff such as take a save file out for editing. So it's not hurting to install it.

    I guess I'll install it for smaller files.

    EDIT: Anyways, are there any other things I should install?

    Yeah I guess, but Filezilla for me is a bit hit and miss, WinSCP connects like 70% of the time too xD I prefer to just take the MicroSD out, I prefer the 16mbps transfer speeds :D

    ftp://(ip: port)

    Did you put a space between : and the port? Don't do that.

    I'm curious. Why do people recommend others to use an FTP when there's literally a built-in function to transport files via wifi for the New 3DS?
    I've used it many times. I can move saves, edit them, and put them back in and they work like a charm.

    Hell
    The built-in tools are awful to get to, and are annoying to set up (and in some cases are not even possible).

    As for the OP: This isn't really a cia suggestion, but make backups of everything. At least once a month, or before a fw update, backup your nand and sd card data to your pc. It might not sound important, but there may be a day that you break something, and that is all that could save your console. Also, before doing something potentially dumb (like modifying a system title), make a nand backup. Use decrypt9 to get xorpads for your nand (you only need one), and keep copies of your installed cia save files. When backing up any data, do not use wireless transferring, that is how you end up with corrupted and unusable files. It is okay with just transferring a save as you (should) have another backup in the event it does become corrupted over transfer, or when editing.

    True, but since NAND backups now come with verification hash files, you can attempt it and verify before proceeding. To say it will never work is inaccurate. Oh, and the chances of both the NAND backup and the file's hash being corrupt such that the corrupted hash works for the corrupted file...I'm pretty sure you have a better chance of being the sole winner to a lottery's jackpot.

    Personally, I backup via FTPd and have yet to have a corrupt transfer. I just don't feel like getting the smaller tool to open the back of the N3DS every time.

    What do you mean? The built-in microSD card function only require you to set up a username, password, and to have good or decent enough wifi. After that, you just go to your PC, open up File Explorer, Network, click on 3DS, and manage your files
    Also, the username and password bit is only a one time set-up.

    But what it you're on Linux? FTP is much easier than SMB there.

    To be honest, I found others suggest FTP 1st and never know this option is exist.
    But, after look on the instruction. Although username password is only one time set-up,
    I still think FTP is much easier to use. Just open FTP App, ability to quick swap to JKSM, And no login on PC.
    That's why I think people rather recommend FTP over built in function.

    You could maybe try playing some of the games you stole... I mean, what was this all for?
