    I heard if you install dlc from a cia it'll work up until you open the eshop? Does the 3ds just delete the dlc straight off the sd card or does it just make it unusable?

    it deletes the data that makes it work but not the ticket or data so you have to reinstall it again

    So for example, If I get dlc for Fire Emblem Fates such as the Revelations path and open up eshop, It will delete all 500mb of that dlc right?

    i think the tickets will be rewritten? am i right?

    you could possibly back those tickets up... and than install them later on ( i think this is faster befor installing all 500mb ) i hope i am right ^^

    Well I doubt it honestly because I download updates from my eshop, yet my sm4sh dlc is always untouched.

    But this could be due to the fact that I use a9lh and emunand

    But I did read in cfw's early days that the eshop auto removed/broke anything that wasn't legit

    if you open up the eshop, it won't delete the data, it will just make the data (or ticket i forgot) invalid. making you reinstall it again so you just have 500mb of junk

    No. Who pays for extra characters and maps in smash anymore :/

    Freeshop/that iso site for games/dlc, eshop for updates.

    people who want to see the series thrive . . . but if you dont own them and they are not removed by the eshop then consider yourself lucky unique

    Well shit lol, I reinstalled fates dlc twice because first time was me downloading shit from freeshop right after hacking my 3ds. I found out about the save transfer tool and transferred my saves to their digital versions so I can sell my physical carts but because of it checking online for updates, it broke my dlc making me reinstall fates dlc again. Does this mean I have to instances of fates dlc on my sd card?

    Actually I think it might have something to do with my emunand.
    Doesn't it patch out most legality checks for anything?

    no emunand is simply put an emulated 1-1 copy of sysnand . . . your cfw (likely luma) applies patches so if it were anything it would be your cfw

    Check system settings, and go on to dlc section.
    Any thing that says it takes up space, but is grayed out, is broke dlc

    Lmao didn't say I was, I was wondering if the fact that I was using emunand had something to do with it.
    Cfw setups can make a big difference :P

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Seems legit. So I guess emunand isn't the reason...
    I honestly can't really figure this out then :/
    But isn't the op also using Luna a9lh?

    It's because you've never opened the DLC shop for Sm4sh. It seems like once you open the DLC shop for a game something is stored on the server side, which is checked against your installed DLC every time you open the eShop. If you've never opened the DLC shop for a game, it has nothing to check your installed DLC against, so it doesn't get deleted.
    Just don't open the DLC shop for any game you have installed DLC for or are planning to install DLC for and you'll be fine.
