    Download the update from the eShop if the game is from your 3DS's region.
    If the game is not from your 3DS's region, download the update CIA from somewhere and install it.

    Just do it via the eShop or download and use freeshop(not sure if the "big N" killed it)

    Big N only DMCA'd the Github source. It's still alive and working.

    Find the freeshop CIA (Its on a thread on the forum) , install it via FBI and carefully read thread to know what to do.

    Look up the cia of freeshop on that iso site. Also just say yes if it wants to repair. Worse case scenario you re-install the title afterwards.

    Never had any problems updating my CIA's through eshop yet. It always works for me for some reason.

    You can always use nintendo's save data trabsfer app. It transfers cartridge saves to cia saves

    And what about freeshop? I installed it but I'm not sure how to load up the games or anything. I'd if I'm supposed to copy files of what it says but I'm not sure where to find them

    in Freeshop options there should be QR Scanner somewhere which you can use. Head over to 3DS Title Key database and where it says Download encTitleKeys.bin click the little QR Button and scan it with freeshop, then reload Freeshop
