    UPDATE - minipasta does not let me install personal legit cias. neither does gw...
    ****
    Still looking for a method to do this :)





    Hi I remember when I was testing legit cia file creation in FunkyCIA that the personal legit cia files - (cia files with a console id, not a blank console id like preinstalled legit cias) - that these files would only install via PBT cfw and NOT via GW...

    is that still the case? what current cfw solutions let us install personal legit cias files?
    i would like to hear from people who have tested, because they seem to be a little weird to other pirated/preinstalled legit cia files that seem to install easily. I believe personal legit cia files need more things patched in the fw, for whatever reason, even though it's legit.

    I remember @capito27 told me about them working on PBT, so, any input about this now? :)
    thanks all, good luck

    Idk ill try for you if you wanna link me one and give it a go in Sysnand? Or will they only work on my console because of the console ID. Try booting into Sysnand with mini pasta install the CIA shut down and see if it runs without CFW.

    i can't like you one because it has to be legit for your own 3ds... :) (so you need to create it yourself form content you bought, make it with FunkyCIA)

    if installed, it will run, but the problem is just installing, these cias would usually not install for stuff like gw. (maybe they do now, i don't know)

    minipasta hmm, i'll have a look thanks :)

    personal legit and works without hacks? i think the only pokemon vc game is the pokemon card game, if that is what you mean?

    At first, I tried it with miniPasta and it worked. I switched to rxTools though. But yes, it worked with miniPasta

    I always thought that if they matched your system they would install on the sysNAND without any kind of CFW. But I could be wrong.

    Yes. I made my own Pokemon ROM, though. I downloaded a randomizer and randomized it and turned it into a VC. Essentially, is not different from a regular VC CIA.

    uhh lol ok then you completely misunderstand the my op and the whole point of the thread. i don't see how you can answer 'yes'... it is not legit, it will not work without hacks.
    thanks for your time, but sorry, i'm asking about personal legit cias. very different to custom content (= pirated cia basically)
    read my op to understand what i mean...

    That was a bit rude. He was asking about legit CIAs, not custom CIAs. Legit CIAs can be installed and launched without a CFW, custom CIAs need a CFW to be installed and launched.

    I'm sorry for not knowing? I didn't know this was an issue to you. How about we stay on the subject so that Cearp can get his thread answered, otherwise, this will become a shitfest I don't want to start. So, chill :D

    i have a friend who wants to install a personal legit cia on 4.5 sysnand.
    i can use minipasta (booted via browserhax i think? it's a 3dsx right) - then go back into browserhax to load fbi via 3dsx also, and then install the cia?

    I interpreted "sorry for trying to help you." negatively, like an insult or something, not as sorry for not knowing but I tried. Anyways, back on topic. I don't know the answer to cearp's problem.

    Correct but whether that CIA will run is a mystery.

    no no, it will run, 100% certain :)
    I'm just worried about the install.

    and to do this with n3ds, i use homemenuxhax, how can i do minipasta then go back and load fbi?
    won't minipasta run then exit, triggering menuhax again? would the pasta still be cooking at this time or would the pasta be thrown away when menuhax does it stuff?
    i usually only use gw so i'm new to free cfw lol
    thanks
