    I have ninjhax 2.0 and was wondering if there is anyway to install my game cartridges onto my 3ds as CIA.

    No, assuming you're above 9.2.

    No. You WILL need CFW to install it in the first place, and legit cias aren't legit carts dumped: they're cias of games that come already downloaded into systems.

    You're asking about legit cia are you? Not every game was pre-installed with consoles, so you'd best go check out the legit cias from that certain iso site.

    That's what I thought but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask people more knowledgeable than myself.

    How would I install legit CIAs to my 3ds? FBI does not work with ninjhax 2.0.
