    just thought i would share something i think a lot of you will find useful, new 3DS and old 3DS users alike, its the microSD management app running as a standalone app on the home screen, this allows you have access to the microSD on the n3DS without opening the back cover or being kicked out of emunand, and for old 3DS users it will allow you to transfer files over reliably without having to exit emunand and remove the SD card .....as per usual no sharing on gbatemp, but i have told someone else how to do it too so they will probably share it elsewhere "soon"....but i heard people like to know whats coming before its even arrived so here you go :)

    Oh nice, so you can manage the contents of your microSD without exciting emunand mode.
    Handy! Definitely something I'll try when my Gateway arrives.

    Probably from Nintendo servers using 3DNUS. I could be wrong, though.

    This looks interesting. Why isn't it allowed to be shared?

    well i asked the person to test out the region free patch too as i only have EU consoles, and mine was based on the EU version of the app, but i dont see why it wouldnt work....at worst it would probably just need to build a EU/US versions....but im pretty sure the region free will work fine with it
    nintendo's code, not allowed on gbatemp....plus i dont want to be distributing it....but a friend also knows how to re-create it (it pretty simple tbh as long as your familiar with rebuilding roms etc)....but no doubt he will probably share it in the usual places

    a few noticable "bugs" (nothing major) is when you choose close, it will say it will shut down, but when it exits you will just get a "an error has occurred" message, but the system doesnt shut down, just click ok and carry on as normal, and after you have used the app if you open up system settings it will cause the system to freeze so you have to reboot, but for copying cia files save etc its pretty handy

    hmmmmm...actually this is a bit embarrassing, i didn't do enough testing, i just tried out using the web browser after using the microSD manager, but it seems after exiting it prevents you using any other apps, applets work fine like web browser though :S....hmmm needs more testing :P

    never used this app on N3ds so does it have an option to delete files from the Sd too?

    someone said it might be risky to delete cia files from BBM

    also whast do you mean about this close bug? the program wont close? what do you do open another program fromt he home screen and then choose close suspended software to finally close it?

    nope i had only really given it a quickish test,opened up browser (stupidly didn't think to try starting actual game or whatever :P).....but its not only system settings it freezes on, basically after using it the only things that are launch-able is applets, any other applications seem to hang on loading....so i guess i was too quick to say it was "good".....its still sort of handy like a more stable ftpony for old3DS users, but requires a reboot after using it........i will have to do more testing i think

    i forget but dont we have to reboot after installing cias anyway?
    i cant remember now last one i installed was MM, and i can't remember if they just show up on home menu or if they dont show till you reboot
    i always usually reboot anyways cause im always taking the sd out to delete the cia on my PC after anyways since someone said it might not be safe to delete the cias from BBM not sure if its true but i just rather be safe and delete with the PC

    well the MicroSD manager app shows the SD card up as a "network drive" on windows computers and works via the wifi, you can copy/delete etc using it
