    Question on the title.

    I have a EUR .cia (Bravely Second Demo) and want to apply region free patches on it.

    Is that possible?

    Not easy, first of all you have to decrypt the cia (fully, using decrypt9's "deep" decryption), then you have to check the output from ctrtool on the main NCCH and replicate everything on a .rsf template, then unpack the ncch, then change the region flags inside the icon.bin in the exefs using an hex editor: https://3dbrew.org/wiki/SMDH#Region_Lockout , then repack everything
