    Now i thini im sure it is capable for an android device to do that. I mean. I can download 20+GB of wii u files on my droid and i dont think it would be unable ti create a 1-32mb rom into a cia file
    Would it be cool to have an ultimate vc injector go!

    Of course it would be possible, but why... The process would be much simpler on a computer.

    Can be done.. but.. the proces of transfering the file to your 3ds, would be so much simpler using the PC.

    ES file exploer has a built in ftp feature that you can transfer your files to your 3ds

    and pc has sd card slots... This would be way too case specific as it would be deemed unnecessary.

    Yeah, i mean, it CAN be done, but also bandwith speed on phones, take several examples on why not to.

    It surely can be done, and its pretty simple, but, why bother doing it? O: its a rare event when you are at "X" area and you are like, You know what, i need to convert this Virtual Console game right now using the phone and FTP it to my 3DS.

    Your 3DS would need to use a Wifi connection can be an AD HOC, so, using a PC, its way simple.

    Thats why i have not published my 3ds.guide for android.

    exactly. Its too much of a fringe case, and with it, the question that gets imposed is "is this type of functionality even necessary or even wanted, and is there a big enough audience to warrant that?"

    I'm talking about computers, not the 3DS.
    But I have a N3DSXL and I just use the Micro SD Management on my computer.
    Or if it's big files, I'll take the SD card out of my 3DS and use a USB SD card reader since my SD card ports stopped working.
    Sometimes I'll use my phones Hotspot when I'm not home and use ES File Explorer and the FTPBrony CIA

    Just a note here. First of all, requesting something to be made will nearly never make it come true. It is extremely rare for a program to be made just because somebody requested it. It's not because there are a lack of ideas for new projects, it's because there are a lack of devs to work on said projects. Second of all, multiple times a day people ask for android builds of every conceivable pc application, and simply put 1 in every 500 gets made. I wish that was an exaggeration but i can count the number of 3ds android applications on one hand.

    That is true. My PC has SD card slots, but they stopped working. I bought a USB SD Card reader for like 10 at a local store.
