You can update, buy/download dlc, ect because Nintendo can't prove the CIA isn't legit. On their end, it just looks like you own the game, thus it's treated as legit.
You will not get banned for doing so.

It should update normally. If not, just delete it through system settings and redownload the game from the e-shop. I once had a legit cia SSB4 that would freeze when I pressed the home button. I just deleted it and redownloaded it though the e-shop, and it was fine.

To the best of my knowledge, u can't download games u installed via non-legit CIA from the eShop. Pretty sure u need the games ticket installed to do that. You can get tickets with homebrew such as freeshop or CIAngel.

If u wanna update a CIA that is the correct region for your console, just enable internet on your home screen, highlight the game, and wait for it to tell you that an update is available. Press A and a menu will open, then press Y to update.

If u are using an out of region CIA, I believe you must also get the updates for that game in CIA form and install them that way.

    I'd rather grab a best buy branded soldering iron that's worth crap

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @ZeroT21, It had a ceramic heating element similar to those RadioShack irons. The cable was quite short, didn't have an adjustable dial and was a 15W iron.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Died just after two months of using it.
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    generic soldering irons were never made to last

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @ZeroT21, Exactly. They're only good if you're willing to practice soldering, not for the long run.
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    i only use 'em to fix my own home appliances or personal projects/mods

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Home appliances would be a soldering gun, including plumbing. Normal soldering irons are for hobbyist projects/modchip installs.

    If brain small, does that mean bigger balls? :unsure:
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    no ,they have bigger balls

  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    we can't possibly insinuate they have small brains, be modest and just tell 'em they have big balls so they feel better bout 'emselfs
