    Have you hit the 300 title limit on your 3DS, and/or want more than 300 titles, but don't want to make an EmuNAND (or 2nd one), or use another SD card?
    The answer, is 3DSBank!
    With this, you can store your "Nintendo 3DS" folder into a bank, and select or create another one to use, containing your other titles (and themes, and badges).

    Download

    This app runs in TWL/DSi mode to avoid potential issues when moving the "Nintendo 3DS" folder into the 3DSBank.

    Before using this for the first time, it is suggested that you backup your "Nintendo 3DS" folder to your PC, in case something goes wrong.

    NOTE: This app does not get around the 40 DSiWare title limit.

    How does it work?

    When starting 3DSBank, it renames the "Nintendo 3DS" folder, before showing a list of the 3DS folders, so that the list is complete.
    Then, you can either select a different one, or exit the tool, so that the 3DS HOME Menu can create a new one.
    The 3DS titles are stored in the "Nintendo 3DS" folder, and when you select a different one in 3DSBank, you'll access the titles stored in that folder.
    So, once you hit the 300 title limit, you can pick a different "Nintendo 3DS" folder to access other titles.

    Controls
    • LEFT: Move left/Previous folder
    • RIGHT: Move right/Next folder
    • A: Select folder
    • HOME/Power: Have console create new "Nintendo 3DS" folder

    Nice! How does it work? It simply changes the"Nintendo 3DS" folder name? Thanks!

    *EDIT* Very elegant solution the idea offline a TWL app! And put it on titledb for improved visibility.

    Really cool idea! Would doing something similar with the TWLNAND/title folder help with the 40 DSiWare titles limit?

    No because Dsiware is stored in nand unlike 3ds titles

    Yeah but that folder is like the "Nintendo 3DS" folder but for DSiWare, so shouldn't moving it effectively uninstall installed DSiWare?

    I think that a tool that dumps and restores the TWL nand would be possible, but i think it would be prone to have problems.

    What do you mean? All TWLNAND really is is a simple FAT partition, with folder and files which can be accessed and moved just like you can do with the SD card

    GM9 can already restore the TWLNAND separately and it doesn't seem to give any problems

    Of course TWLNAND is small, but it wouldn't take much to move less than 150MB to the SD card

    This is amazing! could it be possible to implement a way to manually move or delete titles individually?

    It's actually possible to increase TWLNAND space, but there is no user-friendly way of doing it.
