    I just deleted the pokemon updates using data management in sys settings. My problem now is i get an error when i try to download the new ones legit from eshop. I'm guessing its to do with the fake ticket installed from the cia, i've made a thread about it.

    Yeah i have my nands linked still and it works fine. I think it's just sys nand data management that deletes the fake signed cia files.

    I'm currently using CIA files for my games instead of .3ds/.3dz files. When I need to update a game to play online, I have to use a patch.cia file.
    So when I installed MH4U.cia with Big Blue Menu, I then have to patch it with MH4U-patchv1.1.cia with Big Blue Menu again to play online.

    They're in data management - 3ds - add-on content. It should show the games name and when you click on it shows update data.

    What precisely is listed in the Extdata tab in BBM/devmenu?
    I can't figure out what it is.
    Thanks for any info.

    I don't know for sure what extdata is either, but my guess is that it's the "extra data" that some games ask to save to the SD. I could be 100% wrong though, it's just a guess.
