    So..i have trhis problem. I install games like Terraria, 1000 Spikes, OlliOlli (3DSWare Games) and they say "update required. So, i update the game and when it finishes, it says "update required" again and again. I dont know what to do. With 3ds games like tomodaichi life, luigis mansion, pokemon etc i only need to update once and that´s it. Any ideas?

    Are your NANDs unlinked? Were the .cias for those games region free? Is your emunand updated? What CFW are you using? People really need to start posting more info if they're looking for help. Also, wrong section, you should've posted this to the Custom Firmwares section. Hopefully some mod can move it there.

    Quick fix, find an update CIA for the game instead of trying to install from eshop.

    Hah, nice joke. Its pretty difficult to find update CIAs for anything except the most popular games.

    The update loop happens when you try to update games from other regions. Even if the games have been region fixed to work on your system, they will not update correctly. Unfortunately you will have to either find an update .CIA or .CIA of the game with your region.

    Yah the probability of finding an update CIA (on a non-popular game) is little to none (unless you like scrolling for hours on "That ISO Site").

    Are you using an another region CIA or you are using a region changed emuNAND? That can be the problem.

    I'm having the same problem with Yo-Kai Watch. It matches my region and AFAIK there's no update for that game.

    I assume you installed CIAs of them.
    The issue here is likely that most/all eShop (3DSWare) games don't have updates separate from the game, they actually update the game files on eShop, and since you didn't buy the games, you can't update them from eShop. So if you can't find an updated version of the game in CIA format you're probably out of luck. It's not like you need the updates to play the game though.
    Trying to update such games using eShop might actually be a bad idea, as Nintendo could detect pirates that way and ban them (though they haven't yet)

    That's true, you could use the "Update Suppresor" app

    EDIT: or find the CIA on "That ISO site"

    Then just re-do it again...

    EDIT: If you know what "That ISO Site" is just go there. If you don't know what it is...well...PM me...

    It's more annoying than pressing A twice every time I want to launch that software! :P

    Install freeshop. You can update already installed cias through freeshop. Had the same issue with terraria.
