I'm using Linux and I can't connect to my New 3DS with microSD Management. I want to use it because it is faster than FTP.

No, there are no homebrew Samba servers...

...but some people I've heard of months ago, reported success. I personally could see folders, but not access actual files, about a year ago on Debian testing so... myabe it's improved since then? No idea really

I can mount it fine in Arch Linux but I can only take one action before it disconnects. Like I can copy one file to it (so long as I don't try to tab complete the path, which would perform a directory listing to get that info) but then it's disconnected so I have to remount it.
It's faster to open ftp from the home menu rather then going through the settings to get to microSD management anyway. And I don't see any difference in transfer speed, they both suck... it's just because the 3DS wireless is terrible.

Transfererences from micro sd managmente are way faster than ftp, still ovbiously slower than coping directly on the sd, but good enough.

if you dont want to go trought the hassle of opening system setings, back in that iso site someone made a modified version of micro sd managment that works on old and new 3ds all from a comfy home menu icon.

ApacheThunder made it. The MicroSD Management cia he made errors out when you exit. The error is intentional. It prevents a system reboot so you stay in emunand. I don't think the error is necessary anymore with AL9H systems. Maybe ApacheThunder could make one without the error. His banner is very nice.

yeps, credits to this dude, why i meant is that i found it there, instead that in here.

and a version without the error would be nice.

For me, they're the same speed. I get about 1.5 MB/s on both.

Good to know, but still useless if Linux can't stay connected to it.

Transfer speeds are the same for both protocols, and are limited to about 1.5 mb/s due to the 3DS being a b/g/n device. However, the way the 3DS uses the Samba protocol severely limits it to Windows. Also, using FTP allows transferring from other devices such as phones and tablets.

It's the wireless card. If it supported a/n connections, transfers would be much faster.
http://www.howtogeek.com/222249/wha...ghz-and-5-ghz-wi-fi-and-which-should-you-use/
You're confusing frequency with speed. The "a" standard uses 5GHz only, "b" and "g" use 2.4GHz only, and "n" can use either 2.4GHz or 5GHz. The "b" standard has 11mbps throughput, "a" and "g" have 54mbps, and "n" has 72-600mbps.
The 3DS uses a Wifi module that supports the "b" and "g" standards (but not "n") on the 2.4GHz frequency. So even though the 3DS can theoretically handle 54mbps (= 6.75 MB/s) it doesn't seem able to do that. Which means the Wifi is not the bottleneck. It might be the CPU, or the microSD controller, or software.

It's probably not necessary anymore, at least for A9LH users. The only real problem with the version that generates an error is that the error breaks a lot of other things that restart the homescren or otherwise might soft-reboot the system. Most notably NTR. If you access mSDManagement.cia, you HAVE to power down and restart the device afterwards before trying to launch NTR.

I'm a special snowflake :D
By the way I have a New 3DS and I don't want to unscrew its back every time I want to copy something on it.
