When I download a nsp file from CDNSP GUI, I see that it has a bigger size than I downloaded from somewhere else. Does anyone know why?

I mean, not only the v0 games, also the updates themselves are bigger sizes too.
It can happen. The current way of packing .NSPs is not very good when used to download from the CDN. The best way to get .NSPs for now is actually .NSP files dumped by the Nintendo Switch SD to NSP dumper. Whatever you originally downloaded is most likely not the proper .NSP and will fail to install with Tinfoil (although Rommenu will most likely install it and cause errors after the fact).

My only problem with CDNSP is that it downloads stuff pretty slow, IDK if that's do to Python or the CDN, but I have a gigabit pipe and it only downloads around 7 MB/sec.

Based on this (now deleted) thread which you can find a cached version of here, its due to Nintendo throttling traffic from their CDN servers.

All of them are OK with NSPverify app. It's still a mistery now.
