This app will create nds forwarders and install them to the home screen of the 3ds.

The easiest method of installation will be to download it from Universal Updater. This will include all required files for the sd card as well.

The forwarders created with this app work in conjunction with the nds-boostrap forwarder pack for SD cards here. Read more about it on the GBATemp page.

This takes the place of the Forwarder3-DS java app listed on the gbatemp page.
