    As of now, there are a very small number of available Legit CIAs released on the web. I read a little on FunkyCIA2 and it looked harmless enough for those with 9.2 or below CFW/GW to create Legit CIAs from their eShop content. And now the question...

    Why are their so few people contributing legit CIAs? I'm most likely over looking a large portion of the actual work put into it though.

    Legit Cias that you dump only work for your system. The small number of universal Legit Cias is due to what has been released as preinstalled content on a 3ds system. We can't dump more, unless Nintendo release more 3ds systems with software preinstalled.

    Or you could just downgrade, set up emunand, and use non-legit Cias.
