    so I just finished installing A9LH on my Japanese 3ds. :grog: Upon reading Luma3ds' other features and notes it says that
    Is it safe to play online? Also should I keep the region or ditch it and region change? Thanks! :ninja:

    posted earlier at a wrong thread, I don't know how to delete it sorry for that :ph34r:

    There is no danger playing games online that are installed cias.

    With Luma there is no region lock, meaning that you can play games from any region. However, you may still find playing with WiFi with friends with 3DSs from other regions. Using cias from the same region, and even using the Luma locales folder function, will not help for many games (such as Mario Kart), but I believe online multiplayer will not be a problem.

    You also can only go to the eshop from your console's region (I believe), and you cannot for many games update online. But you can almost always find cia updates.
