    Maybe fast load rom without need to wait to install cias. But there is the risk to get banned, so is much better to use cias im my opinion, the waith is worthwile.

    Do I have to wait every time I want to load a game? Or is it just when installing?

    The installing can be a pain though if you are just trying out games. cias are more for stuff you actually want to keep around

    Not long at all a 4gb game installs quickly (this is dependant on your SD/MSD speed) especially if you close the lid and go about your business

    if you bought any eshop games and downloaded them, that's how it takes. It is different from just popping a cart

    and depending how on large is your sd card, you might not want to install everything as cias (only for stuff you want to keep around)

    I don't consider anything longer than 1 min fast...
    Probably around 15-30 min for the big titles that are at least 1 GB.
