    Hi guys.
    It is my understanding that those which registered a NNID before a certain date can download a legit copy of Brain training for free, that can then be used in order to load a cfw right after a coldboot.
    Now, I can see the game in my eShop, but I have installed a non legit copy in the past and I cannot simply delete that and install the legit one.
    How can I uninstall the non legit ticket so I can download the legit copy of the game from the eShop? Can someone point me in the right direction? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, I was looking for a long time for a method to have coldboot cfw and never saw I could download that game.
    Thanks in advance.

    at this point you're better off buying a different DS VC game and installing haxchi into it. if you delete the ticket you may not be able to redownload it, and I wouldn't mess with anything if you've already installed a non-legit version of it. Just be very careful when installing DS vc's because you can end up bricking yourself out if it tried to run a non-legit title on boot.

    Honestly the $6 or whatever is totally worth the peace of mind IMO.

    Hi Mark, thanks for your kind reply.
    I know that would be the easy way out, but I didn't want to buy the game needed for cbhc when it first came out, now that the Wii U is kinda dead I'd rather try to find a workaround for the problem I wrote about in the OP.
    It is just for a more comfortable experience in these final months before I sell the Wii U to buy a Switch, my console is already running Mocha and I just realized I could've used that game to install cbhc.
    Isn't there some app like in the Wii days that can be useful for my purpose? I know that could prevent me to download even the legit copy but I would like to give it a shot, just for the heck of it.
    Otherwise I'll just stick with Mocha and browserhax.
    Thank you again, really appreciated your help.

    each ticket will start with the hex sequence 00 01 00 04 , so u can tell when a new ticket starts in the .tik files. I'd advise that u start with tik2sd to get a list of all tickets installed, which tik they're installed at, and at which hex address they begin at. it's not difficult to uninstall a fake ticket as long as u can use a hex editor. I've personally only done it twice, so my mind is a little hazy.

    I did it. I've deleted the fake .tik with my smartphone via ftp and installed cbhc. It's working like a charm.
    EDIT: forgot to say "thanks". Have a nice day.

    I sure hope you tested it with haxchi first before installing cbhc.

    If you're using CBHC, please read my guide and follow step 3! Get a full nand backup just in case. It's okay to get it after CBHC is installed. There's a fixer tool to take it out of your backup
