    Yeah, I want to know because a friend of mine broke the charger port inside of the 3DS and he wanted to transfer the cias like if were legal onto a virgin 3DS

    Unfortunately I said no. But he wants to know if no matter what he can erase cias, eshop will let you download it again.
    If not, then I have to tell him that he needs to CFW'd it again.

    If you delete a cia, the eshop will act like it was never installed in the first place.

    system transfer will work yes. (only if he system transfers to a CFW 3ds)

    Installing via eshop will not work unless they are LEGIT CIAS

    There'd be no point. You need hacks to launch the game in the first place.

    Hmm, system transfer didn't work for me. I still had to reinstall my CIAs (and both devices were running CFW).

    Nintendo checks your purchase history and only transfers games that are legit. I had A Link Between Worlds console that the L button broke in a week but I already used the Link Between Worlds code on another console. I exchanged the console for a new one despite using the code as it was broken.

    Fast foreward to when I got another 3DS XL to replace my brother's regular 3DS (which had used the code from the exchanged console)

    The system transfer deleted everything from the 3DS as part of the transfer Link Between Worlds was not transferred and it was not in the 3DS history to redownload despite it being downloaded from the eShop in the first place and having a valid ticket because of doing so.

    No they will not be redownloadable, the exception to this is legit CIA's those will be redownloadable until you perform a system format and the ticket.db is cleared. Also before you ask no you cannot system transfer installed CIA's.

    It was between a vanilla 3DS and vanilla 3DS XL with the standard transfer method, which copies stuff then has you switch SD Cards over. This was a while ago before I had CFW on any of my 3DS's.

    Like I said, Nintendo invalidated the Link Between Worlds code and the eShop purchase with that code but the game worked until I did the transfer, then it was lost.

    So, just for curiosity, if i ever transfer my games with my installed LEGIT cias to another N3DS, these cias will be available to download from the eshop again on the 3ds that receives the games?
    Thanks

    Nope, they will not be transferred via system transfer, you will need to install them on the other 3DS after the system transfer.

    By the way, your friend could easily buy an extended battery pack. Some of them charge through the pack and not the system.
