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:

  • (app name).3dsx: The executable.
  • (app name).smdh: The icon/metadata.

The Homebrew Launcher will scan the sdcard for all .3dsx files, but will only display an icon for those who have one according to the format described above.
