    When making a ROM hack, is it feasible to make a .cia file that acts as a game update? This would be a significant usability improvement for people with CFW.

    I would also release for HANS, of course.

    Yes, you can edit a game's update, should be able to make one from scratch aswell.

    What about creating an update for a game that doesn't have one?

    I sorta remember reading about this. This is all I can find on the forum; I have no idea if it's helpful to you.
