    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)

    but that will not be faster :) you will be bound by the speed the NIC can allow
    full speed SD I/O

    unless I'm missing something?
