    To install a (legit) cia you need a title manager (like FBI) with the right permissions (given by CFW or an arm11 exploit), but once installed you don't need the installing tools anymore

    Maybe it was not legit?
    You can install nonlegit titles just fine with CFW - and keep them installed, not working of course, if CFW is removed

    Well here the point.

    Why sell 21 "original" games and include all 19 real Legit .cia and 2 fakes?

    Doesn't make any sense.

    could do a CFW, hide from user and sell with any great games, but no, it's 19 Legit and 2 Zeldas.

    So i think maybe somehow this 2 games are running with no cfw

    I have a game that isn't on freeshop, but that I downloaded and now have the .cia file. How do I install the game? Which folder on my SD-card do I transfer the game to?

    If you have the cia, just put it on the sd card, and install. It doesn't matter what folder it is.
    Just use devmenu or fbi to install it.
