Does freeShop install .cia files or .3ds files?

    I'm pretty sure it installs .cia files but just to be sure I want to ask. That being said, if it's .cia files it's safe to go online right? like with any .cia file

    freeShop installs .cia files as if you were downloading a game from the actually eshop (besides the invalid ticket/signature). Due to this, you are safe to go online as .cia files do not have a header, and thus do not need any modification in order to be played online safe.

    .cia plus tickets needed for the system
    Just like if you bought the game from Nintendo's servers...
    Haha! Amazing.

    .3ds files are only for flashcarts.
    .cia files are only for installing.

    Hope that helps.
