My friend is telling me that its possible to install 3ds cia without cfw
Just by having a homebrew launcher exploit and Fbi inside of the launcher
Im not buying it tho
Is it true that i didnt need to get boot9strap?

i believe only legit cias. and the system firmware had to be around 9.2 - 10.4. After that it was patched and you need b9s or kernel exploit to be able to install any cias afterwards.
Could you explain to me what a legit cia would be please i should also add that he is on 11.2

It's actually up to 11.2, not 11.4. So his friend is right since he's on 11.2, but it's still only for legit CIAs.

From 11.3 and on, this was patched and from 11.4 and on the ability to install CFW with just access to HBL was patched too. I highly suggest you get CFW since you can play unsigned CIAs and generally open up your system for whatever you may want in the future.

On 11.2 it should be possible to do. All you need is arm 11 kernel access to install a .CIA file. 11.2 should have a public arm9 kernel exploit. This hack is sufficient to install and run .CIA files but if it's not a legit CIA the system will not run them without a CFW (which is possible without boot9strap as cfw just needs arm9 access to run the patches. So any arm9 exploit can do this)

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
