    Hi @ all,

    since I do not want to re-open the N3DS every time I need to drag a file on or off the SD I'd like to know
    how to access the SD Card without opening the back cover every time?

    best wishes!

    Make a hole, but why not just use the Microsd card app to transfer the files? It's useful to transfer small things that are less then 20mb

    worked like a charm! way better than opening up the 3DS every time I want to install a small .cia or get some saves from the 3DS! thanks for your help.

    Using FTP cias is also a choice.

    Basicly they are doing the same work, so I don't want to suggest a specific one.
    You just need to install cia, open it, and make a connection via a PC within the same network.

    Yes it's really easy.

    Just install the cia and launch the app.
    And on your computer, install the client.
    Then launch FileZilla and you set tje 3DS IP with port 5000 and you press connect.

    It's all you need to do.
    After that, you can drag and drop your files. :)

    great app, thanks. 2MB/s is fine for me, I guess. No more screwdriver action for installing .cias or getting saves!

    thank you @All

    If you have a n3DS, i found that sometimes using the ntr option to "overclock" the cpu raise the debit (from ~800Kb/s to ~1.8Mb/s).

    I tested without NTR and it gave me around 2,3 MB/s. Seems to be the maximum the old 802.11g-Wifi on the N3DS can handle. Unfortunately it does not have 802.11N.

    Yes, but sometimes when i transfer files, the debit is not maxed. If i use this it'll instantly maxing up my debit.

    Any ftp cia or homebrew app.
    The on windoes just open up a d folder, then type in ftp://ipadress/port
    Ip address and port is give to you by the ftp app.
    Normally 192.168.1.(1 through 255)

    I am looking fir a ftp app the doesnt need a reboot after launching tho
