    Okay, so HANS can redirect RomFS and ExeFS.
    CIA installer would install everything in the CIA to SD card except RomFS and ExeFS.
    That way, installation times would be faster because 3DS would not need to decrypt/re-encrypt the data files when installation, you just need to decrypt ExeFS/RomFS and drop them into the right path, and let HANS redirect the unencrypted ExeFS/RomFS.

    Oh, and because ExeFS/RomFS is unencrypted, we get faster loading times and save battery life.

    Right around the cornerâ„¢
    That's an interesting idea. I assume you haven't tried if it works yet?
    (Installing a cia with dummy romfs and see if HANS redirection works, I mean)

    Does CIA install times really bother people?

    I've loaded everything i'm likely to play in one go via fbi, it took about 2 hours to install about 30 games

    Smea is being very picky about who he replies to on twitter atm. I have personally asked a question three times in as many days and have yet to get a response.

    This is not piracy, you need the actual game installed/inserted in order to use HANS

    It could be actually useful if your doing a rom translation. Makes sense to have a dummy romfs since you continously edit the external romfs

    Yeah, if you have a UHS-1 card reader and card, disk access to your computer will be faster, and you don't have to constantly encrypt/decrypt.

    Do you think a CIA installer and legit CIA games installation be possible on 9.2+??

    He said payload was downloaded from 200,000 different IPs. If those everyone asks to Smea, he will get a tremendously full message box.

    Not without a new Arm11 exploit that gives Arm9 access.

    Not really. Piracy is already available on 9.2 and lower, and what OP wants wouldn't really make any of it easier or simpler. Even if OP's suggestion/idea works, it doesn't magically provide Arm 9 access, which is what would be needed to enable piracy on 9.3+

    I am not messaging him on here, simply asking a question on twitter. He isn't getting quite so many tweets that he CAN'T respond, so it looks like he is pointedly ignoring certain questions. Mostly ones he feels are stupid and/or he has already answered several times already, or ones that he simply doesn't have an answer for like "when will the new browerhax be ready".

    My question has nothing to do with piracy or timeframes on specific hax, but whether a specific action is possible at this time with the current toolset.
