Is there a CIA I can use to wirelessly transfer data to and fro a PC and 03DS/2DS?

    Like the N3DS's microSD management? I remember someone on "that ISO site" created a CIA for the N3DS that automatically boots up microSD management from the home menu. Anything like that for the O3DS/2DS?

    FTP-GMX is a pretty ideal choice if MicroSD Management isn't your style.

    Pretty much does the same thing and takes less time to start up.

    Yes but any ftp program will be slow as feck for large files. Great for smaller files.

    Moving large files from your PC to your 3DS will generally be slow no matter if you use SD Management or FTP, It's definitely better for small files because of the start up time though.

    OK. I have FTP-GMX installed on my 2DS, but my laptop isn't picking up anything. What do I do?

    It's not the FTP protocol that's slow it's the 3DS wifi chip.

    If it's a FTP server then use Filezilla, cyberduck etc and connect to your 3DS ip, there is a FTP server in the homebrew launcher if you used 3ds.guide aswell.

    On your 3ds start the FTP software and it will show the IP and port etc. 127.0.0.1:5000. Enter that in filezilla and hit connect.

    "Protocol error: Unknown protocol identifier (0x50 0x50 0x48). Most likely connected to the wrong port.
    Connection to server closed."

    Example
    127.0.0.1:5000

    127.0.0.1 is the IP
    5000 is the port.

    Should work, be sure to use no username or password.

    somewhere
    MicroSD Management CIA works fine with o3DS and 2DS. A lot less complicated than FTP too.

    I decided to stick with this. A few seconds waiting time doesn't concern me.

    What you should do depends on what your goal is.

    If your goal is to install CIAs without having to pull out the scard, then use FBI's remote install from ftp server feature, and a little windows program called Boop. It's quite useful.
