    I've seen lots of pros/cons for various installers. I'm curious to see what the majority of people are using (and why). Please vote and add your comments for why you prefer your favorite installer.

    I like Goldleaf because it reminds me a lot of FBI for the 3DS; Not only can it manage digital content installation but it also acts as a nice file browser/shell.

    You're forgetting the SXOS stock installer.

    Forgetting that obsolete broken installer is the best thing anyone can do.

    Real tinfoil + ns-usbloader for me. Reason: it's been 100% reliable, unlike every other option I've tried.

    and 100% reliable for me, just copy and paste using XCI files, no installer needed.

    Oh but it is, If I need to install a NSP file, SXinstaller works fine, never had a problem with it not working.

    This thread is about installers, not drag & drop.

    the title mentions XCI files and you don't need a installer program. so using no installer is my reason for not picking one.

    Goldleaf has always given me a hard time when trying to install titles over USB.

    After trying what you've listed it works like a charm, I think I'll be switching to it as my default installation application. :)

    Ditto. Only issue is XCI's installed with it don't play in Atmosphere, but I think that's an issue of all XCIs installed directly for Atmosphere? For NSPs it seems to work just fine, and of course it loads XCIs which nothing else does, and launches homebrew just fine (other homebrew launchers I've tried can be buggy).
