    I need to get on the eShop to buy Smash Bros. DLC but that requires a firmware update.
    I don't know if I should after the headache I went through to get Homebrew working.

    I did the guide (3ds.guide) all the way through and have A9LH, IronHax, Luma, Homebrew Channel, and a lot of other stuff installed. If I can't update my firmware is there a way to trick eShop into thinking I did update?

    Yes it is safe to update. HBL won't work until the payloads get updated.

    Or why don't use Freeshop and download DLC? :/
    edit: Also, use CTR-HTTPWN to skip Updates ;)

    Maybe he's not a filthy pirate and wants to support Nintendo?

    SUPPORTING NINTENDO IS NOT COOL

    Uhh... COUGH COUGH Of course not.
    ...Okay sooooo here's the thing. I did try pirating the DLC but the sources I've found say that getting it that way doesn't work very well.

    As for not supporting Nintendo they've been kinda pissing me off lately. I'm not going to go into why since it'd be a giant wall of text but I'll tell you I have my reasons.

    It's not going to be as easy to update payloads this time. gspwn has been limited. The workarounds may take a long time if even possible. (at least on clean firm, cfw should be possible)

    How does FreeShop work exactly?
    It just says something about having no title keys.
    Do I need to download those elsewhere?

    When you have CIA file and installed, go to settings, and in update mark "Auto-Update title keys from URLs" and put this URL: sorry no link for you ayyy lmao
    After that, press "Refresh Cache" Enjoy!

    If you want Free DLC, just tap to gamepad icon, and you'll see all your games, you'll see a ! for missing DLC and Updates, don't worry, you'll no get banned, i downloaded over 100 games and nothing.

    Remove that title keys link. It's illegal to share that.

    There is a special website you can easily do a Google search for.
    I can't tell you nor can other people because it's against GBATEMP TOS

    If you read the earlier posts, you would see that the problem has already been taken care of.

    Yeah, I got the link before it was removed.

    I don't know how forums work exactly but I've been on one where it automatically censors swear words.
    I'm wondering if it'd be possible to do something similar with that specific link to prevent people from posting it.
