    I know that know you can install the custom dlcs without it. I've tried it and it worked flawlessly but I'm guessing this is recent. I wanna know if there is a way to install them only with homebrew launcher and not cfw.

    Thanks in advance

    No, it needs signatures to be patched...

    Last I checked, one requires CFW for the reason stated above.

    there generally isn't a way to get free anything without cfw.

    aside from demos, of course.
    if you buy, for instance, the birthright cartridge but want to play conquest, you can download it through the game as dlc for a reduced price.

    Revelations is DLC for both games. Birthright is discounted as DLC to Conquest cartridges/downloaded copies and vice versa with Birthright.

    The easiest way to get free DLC is to install CFW and use freeShop.

    And if they're on 11.3 with only the Homebrew Launcher, they're SOL for the time being.

    Between insane and insecure
    You buy the DLC
    If you aren't on 11.3, you can just use this guide to yourself up with some CFW action

    I don't understand, how was I able to install custom dlcs (playable Chrom, Lissa and Frederick) but not the official ones?

    The custom DLC characters are stored in the extra data, which doesn't need CFW to modify. There was a point in time where the custom DLC units were only obtained via custom firmware. You can't install the actual DLC without CFW because it needs signature patches in order to run, which you can get with CFW. Either buy the DLC or don't get it at all.
