    so this basically means it can be used but DO NOT update it via the eshop/nintendo updater, and instead redownload the new updated .cia? :)

    No, you can have a pirated copy and the eShop update will still be compatible.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Also, depending on the method used, make sure you've got a header.

    You're partially right though. eShop-only game updates are often released as part of the game rather than separately, in those cases the eShop update isn't compatible. But cartridge games that are also on the eShop use the same update data between the cartridge and eShop version, which is separate from the game itself. You can even download the update without owning the game :P

    Gambia, The
    Yes, you can (complete online access with all feautures).... you have two solutions.

    1. Omega Ruby with 1.4 update
    AND latest emunand/firmware (currently 10.7)

    OR

    2. Omega Ruby with 1.4 update
    AND spoofed/franken firmware.... basically you can be on example firmware 9.0 and you just need to download the latest nver and friends module from the 10.7 firmware which means not the whole 10.7 firmware, you will still be on 9.0

    YOU DONT NEED any header for .cia gam

    BTW you can also download latest tiger and eshop mini applet for eShop spoof and after installing it, you need to run the free multi patcher and press the "start" button inside free multi patcher every time you want to acces eShop.

    Yes, as long as the CIA is legit. Any CIA can as long as it's legit, since these are the same cias which come pre-installed on 3ds bundles and all use the same header online.

    Any CIA can go online without problems. CIAs don't have headers.

    1. Yes you can. There shouldn't be an issue as you're using CIAs and those have already correct headers.

    2. Some people mention update weirdness, this is only an issue if your CIA is region-locked to your region. This isn't an issue with XY/ORAS as these are the only currently region-free games.

    Omega Ruby is a legit CIA. ;)
