    Thread title basically, I have a problem where eshop thinks I own games I've run as CIA, so it doesn't actually let me buy it. How do I go about removing all traces of the CIA so that eshop no longer sees it, and it no longer causes problems?

    I thought devmenu removed all traces (ticket included)?

    Bigbluemenu works too, but be careful with it

    Nope, uninstalled via bigbluemenu, eshop still sees it. Unless I missed a step somewhere.

    What I did was uninstall by pressing x and then confirming. Was I supposed to do another thing to remove the ticket entry?

    what other problems does it cause?
    You want to buy the game legally but doesn't let you? or there are other problems installing cia?

    i guess getting your ticket.db, editing that fake ticket out, and writing it back to the 3ds. or just accept that you are going to save money by not buying the game :(
    it's possible to do but there are not really public tools to help you do it easily.

    Yeah, I wanted to buy an actual copy since I feel it's more than worth it. Also I wanted to move my gateway save to cia but there's no way to do it other than installing a cfw that actually can possibly brick the entire thing, and there's no dump of the US pack in bundle version of 3u that can run in classic mode.

    Figures. I could redo emunand but that's the nuclear option and wipes everything.

    what if you uninstall them through the system settings' software management option?

    Uninstalling by BBM or SD management won't solve the problem.

    Yup, I went through that before.

    To fix it,

    1. Backup present your SD card
    2. Use a different SD and resetup emunand and update emunand to enter eshop
    3. purchase the game from eshop (make payment and all)
    4. Now you can swap back to the original SD card. you will be able to "redownload" the game now, as you DID make a purchase.

    (the error happened because eshop checks 3DS nand and sees that you 'purchased' the game. however when checking nnid database, you didn't, so download fails at 99%)


    I encountered this issue just 2 days ago, and had to find the fix myself.

    Let me know if it works for you. It worked for me :)

    (I recommended another SD card, so that it would not mess up the files in your present SD card)

    I think the download fails at 99% because of the wrong titlekey stored in ticket.db. Obviously the content won't be decrypted with it.

    Yeah,

    So what I did was to swap my emunand to before I installed the CIA, made the purchase,
    and it fixed the problem.
    After that, I simply swapped back in to my original emunand AND I was able to download that game from eshop afterwards.
    so my everything was intact!

    I dunno how to fix the wrong titlekey in ticket.db, so that was my next best option, which worked.

    Delete the extdata? I imagine that might cause a problem. I know that devmenu doesn't delete it.

    If it was a good CIA, made with FunkyCIA, it would have the correct title key :)

    Would it be possible for you to add an option to FunkyCIA to make a "legit" CIA that would work on the console which purchased the eShop content?

    Does CTRClient use the same install process as devmenu?
