    Yes. You can install it if it's legit / you have sign patches.

    Yes. Once again, provided you're in an environment where signature checks are patched (i.e. an emunand).

    False.

    Legit CIA's aren't region free unless your using CFW.

    well, if you're able to install them then you should be able to launch them through HANs right?

    I mean "native" (for say) region free, like rxTools has.

    Legit CIA =/= Region Free JUST BECAUSE it's a Legit CIA.

    Why do ppl keep saying it needs to be a legit cia? It doesn't matter. As long as it's region free it'll show up on the home menu, and if it isn't, then you can launch it in devmenu or some other cia installer.

    iirc non-regionfree out-of-region cias aren't runnable, but if you convert the .3ds to .cia, it becomes region free (that's how I did it)

    9.3 - 10.3 = Legit CIA's ONLY

    4.1 - 9.2 (with CFW) = Any CIA.

    Really? I always thought it just doesn't show up on the home menu when it's not region free but you can still run it in devmenu. That's what I had to do before on some games.

    Then you could just install it, and it should work. If it doesn't work, then you could just launch it with HANS.

    if you use any cfw besides reinand, you will automatically have region free!
