    Is it possible to tell if an app is the eShop version via the exheader, ExeFS or RomFS? Or via some homebrew app?

    Bump.

    If you are asking if you can tell if you have extracted the eshop contents then yes. If you want to know if you can do that with regular games I am not sure if it is from exHeader or exefs

    For any 3DS game, the retail and digital versions usually differ in exactly one way: the ExHeader -- specifically at offset 0xD. At offset 0xD of the ExHeader, info is stored that tells the console whether the ExeFS is compressed or not, as well as whether or not the application is to be loaded from the SD card. According to http://3dbrew.org/wiki/NCCH/Extended_Header#System_Control_Info, Bit0 is the bit which determines if the ExeFS is compressed, and Bit1 determines SD loading. So, if 0xD is set to 0x01, then the application has a compressed ExeFS, but is not allowed to load from SD. If 0xD is set to 0x03, then the application has a compressed ExeFS, and is allowed to load from SD. Attempting to load a game that does not have this bit correctly set from the SD card will result in a hang.

    But otherwise, the game's decrypted data is generally 1:1. For example, with New Super Mario Brothers 2, the ExeFS and RomFS are 1:1 between the digital and retail releases. The only differing byte is that single byte in the ExHeader.

    ... I'm not sure if that answers your question, but I hope so. ^^
