    I'm thinking it probably stands for TWL Importable Archive.

    But still what exactly are they

    It actually stands for TWL Installable Archive. They are nds apps you can install to the DSi home menu using a PC

    TIA (TWL Installable Archive) is a fan-made DSi file type that contains DSiWare apps, similar to CIA.
    The file type has been discontinued.

    There's an easier way of installing DSiWare, where it's the "title" folder of the TWL NAND, but only contains data for the DSiWare title, and the "title" folder can be overwritten on the SDNAND root with it to install the DSiWare title.

    That's also fine, but if you change your mind, create a partition and format the SD Card to 2GB.

    By the way, you can still use the tool. Just install it and make a *.launcharg file so you can boot it anyways.
