    So I didn't feel like making a thread about this but here I go. Is there any noticable difference besides maybe CIA size when comparing a 3DS rom converted from Xorpads to a CIA dumped from an eShop download? For example Pokemon X converted from a 3DS file using Decrypt9 and Simple CIA converter to the eShop version of Pokemon X? Is the size different, File differences, and lastly this is just pure speculation could Nintendo possibly tell the difference? The reason I ask is when Pokemon (Z/Y2/X2) comes out I dont want to download a CIA version of the game just to find out it was a converted .3DS rom.

    The main difference is invalid/broken sign for self converted .3ds and missing entries in the DB for activation.
