    Hello im new in the communauty of 3DS/2DS (im a big fan of WiiU)
    my console : Old 2DS / A9LH / Luma3DS / arm9loaderhax / CFW 11.0.0-33 U on SysNAND.(my console was US)
    i have FBI and DevMenu for installing .CIA .. but i wanna know its save to playing online with .cia games?
    i found a smash bros US.cia but the game was region free.. im am on the lastest version on my frimware..
    do i can update my game from eshop and playing online? or i need to patch something..
    maybe the game a 3ds to .cia converter was used.

    thank for the tip :)

    yeah i have luma :D that good.
    because some people trying to say .. you can get banned for using .cia and some tutorial show u need to get a header from you console for convert a .3ds to a .cia ..
    that why im asking before made a mistake.
