    I have a cia with about 200 themes on it. There for usa. I plan on installing on emu9.5. I know im going to have to delete 100 Themes because of the 100 limite. I have never installed a theme before so im not even sure how to delete them. Will i be able to see what what they look like before i delete? I read some where a few weeks ago that. Usa themes were not working or something.

    My last questions so i dont have to open a new thread

    I seen a omega ruby Legit rom floating around last night. Is it realy legit. And since its a cia. It should be fine online?
    Would it be better to use the cia over the .3ds. I currently have on gateway

    It'll show you their icon and ask you to press a button to delete them.

    Why wouldn't it be safe?

    Themes I'm pretty sure don't work unless your on a private CFW since GW doesn't patch checks for themes iirc

    Those legit cia even work in classic mode/sysnand. They are very much safe, and safe for online. They're indistinguishable from a pre-installed game.

    I was talking about installing themes, CIA's I have had no issue with, i have 16 gigs of them installed so no issue their, i was just talking about themes since themes are not patched by GW iirc.

    I've installed several theme packs to emuNAND on N3DS AND O3DS, first had about 90 themes, second which I just got last night had 108. They all work, and it's very nice with the theme shuffle feature.

    Edit: The only catch is that you have to uninstall the previous theme pack with big blue/red menu first. I think you can install right over it too, but you cannot install say one theme at a time. You can only install a theme pack or a single theme as they will over-write one another.

    Edit Edit: Also, make sure it's for USA, not J or EU. Themes are region specific it seems. I'm not sure about 200 themes for US. I don't think there are that many yet but could be mistaken.

    I was scratching my head at this exhange and thinking I was totally missing something. I installed a cia theme pack on 2 N3DSs and no problems.

    Is that why a legit purchase in classic mode of a theme gets rid of the theme in sysnand after going into something? Is therre any method I can do to get a theme on sysnand without updating my n3ds?
