    so guys since the N3DS needs the screws to loose to open its cover , i find it somewhat hassly to open it, everytime i need something new inside and that could range between 2days to 2weeks. ( i say hassly because.. i broke one of the screws from opening the damn cover so often XD and yes i am careful with it but it still sort of broke ! so its just stuck in there now , i can still open it but it went off its cover ,dont know how to explain! )

    is there a way to copy files ,specifically cias into my msd without having to pull out the msd itself?

    like you know wirelessly etc. or is there still no option to do that , thanks in advance :)

    You can do that with MicroSD Management (it comes built in on the n3DS) but it's limited by the 3DS' slow wifi speed.

    There's a "microSD management" cia that will allow you to transfer over the same WIFI network but a 1.7gb file takes around 30 minutes. Search for it on that iso site.

    You can see the whole SD card folder as if you plug it in directly.

    It is also limited to windows. Use FTBrony if mSD management doesn't work for you.

    thanks buddy this was the easiest way for me :) , it is incredibly slow but it is handy for smaller files !

    1mb/ps transfer speed ! XD

    i tried the punch and it works now for me finally , but can you tell me if this keeps the cia inside my msd or does it just install it and done?

    LoL .. thanks xD i guess i wont use the mSD management anymore, it freaked me out ,after finishing transfering the few cia files i tapped close and it said it would restart the system but it kicked me back to the data management section and when i tapped to go back there it would kick me back to the msd management , i powered it off now and all is luckily good.

    You're better off sticking your memory card in the computer directly, because transferring huge files over Wi-Fi like that, well...

    For one, it'll take forever. For two, higher chances of parts of a file becoming corrupted and then it's useless.
    They always recommend we transfer files directly by plugging the SD card in the computer whenever something wasn't working saying that transferring it over wireless has a chance of the file being corrupted.

    If you use the cia of mSD management instead of going from within the settings, you will actually be kicked back to the home menu. It won't restart.

    the cia version i had , when i just move the cursor on it /it would freeze the console for me/ note i am using RxTools.

    but alls fine now :) the msd management can be handy too! and same goes for fbi+Socketpunch < both work for me so its all cool thanks guys !
