Comment your prefered option and why.
I go with Ticket injection since the downloading of the title (either via FBI or eShop) results in an instantly installed title rather than building a CIA then installing it, taking twice the space, if only temporarily.
You are so misinformed. Lol. CIAngel is able to install rather than building a CIA if you want and it can take out the need for having to download and then install said ticket.
Don't get me wrong, both ways have their benefits. But was just informing you that you Can download with CIAngel without it having to make the CIA first.
Tickets best - can use eShop for downloading and installing, so can have multiple games downloading in sleep mode instead of having to wait for each one. Plus in the eShop, a search returns actual results ;-)
None, my favorite choice as of yesterday is 3DSeStuff (which has a point and click gui for selecting tickets or cias), but I mostly use cia mode -- download once, install many + a lot of stuff I want was delisted
I prefer tickets right now, only because I can then install the contents of it via FBI and be able to look at the progress.
Once CIAngel implements some kind of progress bar I'll likely do it all from that.
CIAngel has had the ability to install directly from the Nintendo CDN for a little bit now, no temporary files are created (Aside from a temporary tmd and cetk, which get overwritten during every install, and are only a few kb in total size).

CIAngel has also had a progress bar for a little while now, for both download and install modes.
yeah, CIAngel can do (will shortly be able to do) all options.
1. install ticket
2. download a 'cia' and install directly to the 3ds without actually creating the cia
3. download and create a cia, leaving it on the sd card to install later, or give to a friend etc
What is 3DSeStuff?
A windows gui for Funkeycia, you can find it near the end of its topic!
I prefer CIA, because it's what I'm used to. The closest I've come to ticket injection is CIAngel, with wings.json.
I prefer CIAngel in install mode, but I'm kinda biased, having written that feature and all
Is it possible to make a list of games you can download & install with CIAngel but can't find on the eShop? Things like the Ambassador games. When I couldn't make the search feature work I used FunKeyCIA to generate all tickets and then installed them so I could browse the eShop. But I realise I must be missing out on some titles doing it this way.
the ambassador games are on eshop - i mean, maybe they don't have their own pages, but we can download them fine if you have the title id and key
the latest wings file has some of them i think? i saw a gba game in the list, maybe more than one i didn't look.
but yes, ticket injection will not get you everything, no stuff like you just mentioned, no out of region stuff, no dlc.
Basically you can download the same games that you can download via ticket method in CIAngel, both methods depends of a certain database...
So, just the ambassador games then? I am using the eShop to browse, just wanted to know if I was missing out on anything besides the ambassador games - if not, that's cool.
Here is a clean and formatted version of the newest (As of April 26) wings.json file (The titlekeys are stripped out, this is purely for searching through to find names of what is in the actual wings.json): https://thedgtl.net/wings_clean.json
Oh and one idea to add: it's possible to install a CIA from a web address (as shown by the QR code CiA installer). Could you maybe always keep the latest version in the same place, and have that place hard coded into the app, and have it self-update (ie download and install the latest version, if the version doesn't match what is in the hard coded address)?
I download .3ds games and convert them to cia and install with BBM. Does CIAngel let you find and download anything you want or something? Why not keep converting games?
It's a lot faster than doing that! You could have a CIA downloading a minute after deciding what you want to play, whereas you'd have to find a place to download the .3ds, navigate through all the adfly links and survey links, then put files on and off your 3DS to get xorpads etc, then wait for it to actually convert.
