Applications are installed by copying the necessary files to the 3ds/ folder in the root of the SD-card. Most applications come with two files:
- boot.3dsx: The executable.
- icon.bin: The icon/metadata.
The Homebrew Channel will scan the sdcard for all .3dsx files, but will only display an icon for those who have one according to the format described about.
