    I'm thinking of installing Smash Bros DLCs, and I have a few questions before doing so.

    1. How do I update the DLC when theres a new update for DLCs?

    2. How do you delete the DLC cia if you don't want it anymore?

    3. I heard someone lost all their data going in the system settings software management deleting a cia game or something. I might have read it wrong. Is this true? If it is, is it for emunand, or sysnand?

    4. Is it possible to get banned playing with cia DLC online?

    install the new update cia using bbm
    system settings
    likely true . . . they did not unlink there nands first
    is it unreleased dlc? (or dlc for an unreleased game) and are you cheating (online). . . if the answer is no your good because those are just about the only reasons nintendo will pass out bans

    I've unlinked my nands. Is it safe to enter data management? Also, I use FBI instead. But is there anything good about bbm that I should use it instead?

    then yes
    yes . . . when installing bbm knows if the cia goes to sd or nand and will do so automatically and, when deleting bbm will only show you a list of user installed titles (including eshop games) so anything you see is (potentially) safe to delete
    also bbm has a save file manager built in
    another thing fbi sometimes has issues installing (some) dlc.cia

    Ah. Should I completely replace it with BBM and delete fbi then? maybe for safety purposes. Or would I need it for something else later? Can BBM do anything that FBI can do?

    fbi can overwrite existing titles (bbm cant) devmenu2x (a mod of the same cia installer bbm is a mod of) however can overwrite existing titles
    also fbi install cias via network (neither bbm or devmenu can do that)

    personally i keep all three around . . . a cia installer is tiny and (sometimes) always useful

    Ah. But if I delete FBI, can't I just use it in the homebrew launcher?

    Also, is it necessary to delete the old dlc cia before applying the new one?

    if you so choose . . . yes

    Thanks. One more question. I see some downloads on updates. What is that for? Couldn't you just update from the e shop?

    if the system region and the game region match then you may download the update from the eshop

    Oh wait, I have one more thing in mind. Is it possible to use real time cheats in reinand? I heard NTR does, but it seems to not support cia. Is it possible to use both at the same time?

    I see the thread say that you can't use it with cia or non legit cartridges.. Yet I see some people say it works with gateway and any other cfw.. I'm a bit confused.

    You can run NTR from inside any other CFW to combine their functions. This includes ReiNAND.
