    Whats the difference between the legal and illegal CIA installers? What makes them illegal? Are there features the illegal ones have that legal ones can't?

    legal - made as homebrew.
    illegal - made by nintendo.

    as far as i know there no special features you can get from Nintendo's cia installer that you cant get from a homebrew one.

    It seems like you need to read that yourself my man. Jesus Christ.

    Anyways..the only thing that makes FBI or anything that was not written by Nintendo "legal" is because it was coded someone that was outside of Nintendo without using Nintendo's code. Hence, making it legal. BUT, if anything that was copyrighted within the program: EX: Code, images, etc. It will be considered "illegal". The issue with illegal CIA installers (The only illegal one beings Nintendo's self-written code) is that they are not updated unlike legal ones. (Once again, coded by people in recent times, instead of SDK tools from 2011 or whatever. Old stuff.) So, they will get updated more often, with more bug fixes. The thing about Nintendo's installer though is that it much more quick and more accurate with installing things people say. Also, have better rates with installing patches and downloadable content with illegal ones, (once again, Nintendo's). FBI, etc, have more features. (EX: Installing over WIFI, installing batches of files.)

    So, tl;dr

    Legal = More features, potentially more bugs since the code is being touched by random people sometimes. (I think? Github..does that? I don't know. I don't use github).

    illegal = Less features, works better some most of the time, faster some of the time.
