    What happens when I try to install CIA which is not Region Free and is not the region of my 3DS?

    It will install but you won't be able to open it from the home menu. Opening it from a .cia manager will work though.

    Yeah, just easier to use a catch-all term now that there's at least three different options (DevMenu/BBM/BigRedMenu). Although I'm not sure if BigRedMenu has the ability to launch installed apps.

    BigRedMenu?
    A new tool?
    Does it fix 128GB SD card compatibility?

    basically, it's an alternative for bigbluemenu or devmenu, that was created by tempers and is not illegal to link
    it does the same things

    The only thing it lacks at the moment is that it cannot launch installed CIAs. Other than that it works the same as BBM/DevMenu. As for 128GB support, I dunno; I don't have an SD card that big.

    for 128GB support, format the entire card as FAT32
    it then should work with 3ds

    They don't work with BBM/Dev unless you resize the partition into <=90GB, since GW 2.7 + emuNAND 9.4.

    no, it will open fine, only if you are using the 4.5 CFW it would not work

    Thats a console issue and all you need to do is format it to FAT32.

    Why would you want to launch a CIA from the dev men though when you can just do it from home menu?
    What is the advantage anyways

    Because out of region/wrong region CIAs do not appear in the home menu, but they do show up in the dev menu. Yes, you can patch them beforehand to make them region free and all that, but sometimes it's just easier to install it as-is and just use the dev menu. It comes down to personal preference: do you need/want the icons on the home screen, or do you just want to install and play?

    Ok
    so we can run an out of region game CIA if we install it and launch it from dev men then?
    And don't have to worry about getting a converted one

    If my memory doesn't fail me, then yes. The dev menu has no reason to "hide" out of region applications, since it's a tool not normally used by regular users.

    I think he is confused between devmenu actually recognizing the dlc and the actual ability to play said cia if it is not region free.
