    Hello all,

    after reading up on the many threads here (and getting really good answers - thank you!)

    I decided to set up my N3DS for CFW.

    I would like to have about 30GB worth of games on a 64GB microsd card. I have no need for online play (will have wifi off).

    I am looking for the simplest solution (simple - an noob friendly - to install; simple to use).

    What do you all recommend?

    Thank you

    Thank you both. I have read a number of topics - but found nothing really noob friendly. Or are CFW solutions just like that (lengthy and easy to mess up)?
    Also, found no guides to how to actually put / manage games on the SD card after your CFW is installed?
    Please be patient - if these instructions exist, can you just point me in the right direction?

    CFW is inherently complicated. However, it isn't necessarily easy to mess up.

    You can use FBI to put games on the SD card. You need to game to be in a CIA format. You can find games in that format off a certain ISO site.

    Thank you. I will do some more reading now before commencing the CFW process. (For now most of my roms are in 3ds format as I used to use Gateway a while back - but I found the tool to convert 3ds to cia)

    You don't put games on the SD card and play. YOu need to read up more.

    AuReiNand is the Best and most documented CFW. It's easy to set up. Just read the first post in the official AuReiNand and you're good to go
