We are NOT responsible if you damage your system.

ℹ️ This guide is for Flipnote Studio and not Flipnote Studio 3D.

WARNING: Do not reset your Nintendo 3DS System or uninstall Flipnote Studio; doing so will cause you to permanently lose access to your Flipnote Studio ID and account. Username changes can be requested.

Installing Flipnote Studio

Since you’re unable to get Flipnote Studio from the eShop, you’ll need to obtain it via other means: 

1a. If you already have a DSi with Flipnote Studio installed, you may follow this guide to extract it from your DSi and convert it to a .cia file:

1b. If you don’t have a DSi with Flipnote Studio installed, you will need to find a copy of Flipnote Studio for your region elsewhere. Please note that the file must end with .cia.

2. Once you’ve gotten Flipnote Studio as a .cia file, transfer it to your “cias” folder in your 2/3DS’ SD card. If you don’t have this folder, create it in the root of the SD card.

3. Open FBI and navigate to SD > cias > Flipnote Studio.cia > Install and delete CIA. This will install Flipnote Studio to your 3DS’ home screen.
