    I don't believe so, from what I understand they are region locked. If it is possible, you need to choose either a USA or JAP pack as the DLC over-writes one another when you install as CIA. If you purchase a bunch of one-offs they do not overwrite one other, but as soon as you install a CIA your real theme purchases are uninstalled.

    I have no fucking idea.
    You can't use themes on 4.5 anyway. They were introduced in 9.0

    He probably means an emuNAND which has a 9.x update installed on it.

    Well it would be nice for him to specify, because its blatantly obvious that themes cannot be used on ANY 4.5 nand...

    Yeah, given it's emuNAND, I thought it goes without saying that it is more or less latest firmware.

    My bad not not being clear.

    You can't use other region's themes from a CIA since those are region locked, but you could use them if you get their theme cache and use CHMM. There is an app somewhere that extracts the theme cache from a CIA theme.

    Can you use the dreamcast theme on an ntsc-u n3ds (that was converted from a ntsc-j n3ds)?

    although you have to decrypt the contents which is a chore, but yes it is very possible :)
    (it does not simply 'dump' the theme file from a cia, it is more involved than that)
