Hacking Installing CIA directly to SDCard

What are the possibilities of installing the CIA directly from PC to SDCard;

is it possible?

I just recalled this thought.

benefits of this,

faster transfer rate
no double size usage requirement
manage games on sd

I'm guessing that the ff: will be pre-requisites

some sort of extdata tool
the console unique key as mentioned in https://3dbrew.org/wiki/Title_Database
so and to decrypt *if any the extdata / title list: / parse and or rebuild db: https://3dbrew.org/wiki/Extdata
I'm guessing the cia can just be simply extracted from a .3ds file or the .cia file itself

the big .app per game is the same, how do we know this? (*3ds, install game , tiny format, install game, compare .app from the other <id> folder)

    I rather enjoy a life of taking it easy. I haven't reached that life yet though.

    Wish they would let us play the NCAA football 14 on newer xbox, its one of the only games I love and own on disc still, that is not back compatible, bs.

    @BigOnYa My dad recently bought a spare Series X off of me, got game pass, and saw Madden '24 on Game Pass, decided to try it out.

    ...He was a bit taken aback by the 60GB download size. Poor guy's still living in the 90s!

  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    @K3Nv2 He was looking into consoles for his house anyway (for my younger siblings and himself) and I had a spare XSX and Switch I ended up selling him at pretty steep cuts. I would just give them to him, but I did buy them with the intent to sell them... and college is super expensive.
