    I'm wondering if people would like to share their adventures with Tech Illiterates.

    me-Put the folder in the root of your SD card.
    "Weres the root"
    *30 seconds later*
    Me- boot into EmuNAND and install the cia
    "Whats emunand and cia"
    Me- Emunand is "hack mode" and cia is "free game file"

    almost every time without fail I get "Isn't that illegal" when mentioning hacking the 3ds. I then have to use some analogy of something that isn't illegal, but can be used for illegal means (i.e. a gun isn't illegal and has perfectly legal uses, but opens the opportunity to do illegal acts)

    For those that are interested, @NekoMichi had written a very good illustration for explaining sysNAND and emuNAND here.
