    Hello, I have a 2DS USA with Luma installed and I would like update a Japanese 3ds game that I have. When I am on the main menu, there is an option for me to update the software when I click on the game. How ever when I click on it, it requires me to update my system itself.

    Is there a way to update my Japanese 3ds games on an outdated firmware as I want to stay on 10.3? Thanks.

    Go to that iso site and find the update in .cia form and install the .cia. That's your only option. Also, why are you still on 10.3? It's safe to update.

    Well, both systems either need to be on 11.1 or you use ctr-httpwn through the Homebrew Launcher on the 10.3 system.

    freeShop can download updates if that title keys site has it uploaded.

    install freeshop, installed games should appear in the game list with the option to install updates. if it doesn't then you have to use that iso site to get the update.

    He's talking about out-of-region games, though. He can't with a9lh or Luma3DS. He either needs to go to that iso site or download freeShop.

    Does arm9loaderhax allow cross region update? Didn't it just an exploit that allow CFW to be loaded?

    It doesn't allow cross region updates, unless I'm mistaken.

    Some games are JPN Only such as Love+, some games in JPN doesn't have English language such as Bravely Second... ETC.
    And he doesn't want to buy a new console. Since CFW Only allow cross region play. He came to ask about updating.

    Since my question is related, I decide to ask it here.
    I have JPN 3DS with Luma3DS, and I would like to play legit cartridge version of USA Bravely Second.
    Can I use Ciangel to download only an update, not the whole game cia?
