    Considering that CIA files are outdated and can only be used on 9.2 or lower, are HANS files the spiritual successor to CIA files?

    CIAs are far much more than anything HANS can currently do.

    So what can HANS do that CIA files can't do?

    Really, all that HANS has over CIAs is how it can launch with language/region spoofing which is selectable. Otherwise, CIAs are pretty much the best thing to use if you can use a CFW.

    I didn't like it because some of the GB/GBC games were shoddy (The Pokemon games had GFX and SFX glitches with Pikachu's cry being muted with static on Pokemon Yellow and the Pokemon sprites twitching when the appear in battle in G/S/C). The NES ones played fine, for the most part but I couldn't get any of the Sega Genesis 3D Classics to run (they just got stuck at the spiraling 3DS logo) and GBA couldn't because I didn't have AGB patched and it always said "An error has occurred" on the bottom screen when launching them. I sold that 3DS today and it was on FW 7.1 and it's too bad because I wanted to play custom GBA and Sega Genesis games so bad but I couldn't get them to work.

    OH DEAR GOD YOU'RE BACK

    Um, I mean, there is no such thing as "HANS files".
    .cias are a lot better than HANS will ever be in it's current form, seeing as, you know, you can't steal things with it.
    You can't pirate with HANS, if that's what you're asking.

    now stop haunting me, @03bgood

    I'm not trying to steal, I just want to play GB/GBC and NES games that Nintendo didn't release.

    So what if I'm back. It's not like I did something illegal!

    CIA & HANS are used for two completely different purposes and as of such one of them doesn't just replace the other. A CIA is more or less an installable archive whereas HANS to my understanding patches/replaces files on the fly with files of your own choosing.
