    So there are 2 ways of running "backups" (we all know what you mean ;) - loadiine and Brazillian. The Brazillian method will allow you to install any game to your home menu, as long as it was released both on a disc and on the eshop. Loadiine, however, is a homebrew app that can load most apps, but only from an SD card.

    Yes, it matters, the brazillian method only works with games that had both disc and eshop versions, because of patching tickets, anything that wasnt released on both needs sigpatches.

    In the context of this thread, i assume op doesnt know about sigpatches, or loadiine, or the brazillian method, so im keeping it as simple as possible.

    This guy doesn't even know that what Loadiine is, I'm guessing @ItsKipz is trying to keep it simple
