    Hi everyone,

    I have Googled this and even read a old thread on this forum - but a lot of the information is old and I'm also reading mixed messages.
    I have a NEW 3ds XL with a9lh and I've never ever signed up with a NNID. I'm thinking of signing up for Pokemon Bank but before I do, I just have a few questions.

    I've read mixed reports about people entering the eShop and losing their custom themes & DLC, and also am I right in thinking that I won't be able to get game updates any more using the eShop with a NNID? I have not purchased anything from the eShop if that makes any difference.

    Thanks in advance!

    Custom/pirated themes and pirated DLC sometimes get removed upon entering the eshop or data management in system settings (or at least they used to anyways). Not 100% what causes it but I can say that I only ever experienced it one time in the ~2 years I've been using CFW, and it was a single DLC that I had to reinstall (out of like 10 total and 3 just for the game in question).

    That said, this has nothing to do with installing game updates. Updates for games are usually installed from the home screen when prompted, and at no point does it actually open the eShop.

    I can second Aroth and if you do have a hard time installing DLC it can easily be found on that Iso site and installed through a .cia

    There's also freeshop and ciangel. Anyways, stuff only get's deleted on entering the eshop if you have legit DLC and pirate DLC, themes, etc. If you wanna be safe use freeshop.

    freeShop is useless in regards to DLC in my experience. CIAngel is the only one that has them afaik.

    Still doesn't work for DLC because DLC is not purchased or downloaded through the eshop, but rather the game itself.
