    Hello,

    I see many people speaking about CIA files and how to install them, but what is a CIA file?
    I also heard about legit and no-legit CIA, what's the difference? And where can I find CIA files to install?

    A CIA file is like an installed game. A .3ds file is a game cartridge, on the other hand.

    Legit cia files are signed and not edited. And we cant help you find them, google is the easiest way.
