SOON! is a good-looking install-&-delete legal CIA Installer. It is a easy to use CIA installer with "AUTOMATIC" cover selection based in the CIA's unique ID. In a near future it will become the "DownloadMii" for CIA files.

The software includes 23 translations (default languaje it's Spanish)

Current Features:

-Automatic Cover Art selection while Installing a Game or App (NEW)
-Translation Support (23 translations to 14 languajes)

3-Restart your 3DS and launch it from the HOME Menu.

-.CIA File (Gateway/MT-Card users)

(sorry for the "mega" link but the size of the package it's too big for GBATemp because every translation's size it's around the 900kb and this software haves 23 tranlations at this time and also v1.3 haves a BIG cover art and icons database)

Thanks to Rinnegatamante for his help with the source code.

SOON! uses a custom version of LPP3DS.
Thanks to Rinnegatamante for creating that great software. This program it's totally open-source and can be modified by anyone, off course, giving credit to the original authors Howling Wolf & Chelsea ("Howling Wolf Naru-José" and "Chelsea_Fantasy") and all the people who translate this app and helped creating it.

As every homebrew, use it at your own risk.

UPDATE:
FULL Version 1.5 it's out.

To all homebrew developers:
If you want your software to be downloadable from "SOON!" (like DownloadMii but this one will be for Homebrews in CIA format) in the next release, please visit this thread:

I'm working now in the Unique ID Cover Database.
When it's done (up to date) I will release another BETA version.

The Theme Creator will be created then. Actually you can create your own Custom Themes by editing the PNG files, but It will acept only one translation. My theme creator will auto-fit all the translation into your theme automatically

All this will be released SOON!

YES, this will be the coolest one, haves a great interface, suppourt a lot of languajes, and also, (not in this BETA version, but SOON!) will be the most easy to use CIA installer

So wait. Can we install unsigned CIAs with this? What's the difference between this and FBI?

We can install unsigned .CIA with FBI as well, it's just that your 3DS does not have the signature checks patched out and therefore unsigned installed .CIA will not load.

YES, this will be the coolest one, haves a great interface, suppourt a lot of languajes, and also, (not in this BETA version, but SOON!) will be the most easy to use CIA installer

How will SOON be different from FBI? Will there be additional features and / or stuff you can't do with FBI, or will the differences mainly be aesthetics and / or ease-of-use? And, will you think about us NINJHAX users, too? ;)
