    (Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, I really wasn't sure where to put it. If it's in an incorrect thread, please move it if you can.)
    I can't purchase a Gateway or Sky, because currently, my family doesn't have too much money to spend on 3DS games, amiibos, etc., so I've been wondering if there's a way to install CIA files to SD card without either of the carts mentioned earlier.
    If it helps, my O3DS firmware is 9.6.0-24U, and I have an R4i Gold.

    even if you had gw you could not use it, you need a 3ds on a hackable firmware to get access to anything like this. sorry

    Oh, I see.
    Do you know of any other ways to play pirated 3DS games without a Gateway or Sky?

    there is no chance at all, with the 3ds you have. if you had a lower fw yes there are a few limited things you could do to play some games, for free.

    So I'm guessing there's also no way to downgrade my fw either?

    Yeah literally the only way to play ROMs on a 9.6 system at the moment is through Sky

    And no, you can't downgrade from 9.6.0
