    I realize that FBi cannot install edited ROMs, so I'm wondering is there a way to get around this? For example, installing another CIA installer with FBI and then using that to install unsigned CIAs? ROM hacks are fun. I want this because I don't pirate most games, I just want an easy way to run ROM hacks.

    You can install unsigned cias with FBI using a CFW

    When you say "Legit" CIAs, do you mean dumps from console bundles? Or CIAs converted from .3DS files?
