    What happens if you install a CIA (non-legit) on a system version higher than 9.2 using FBI or NASA? Will a system brick occur? Or would you simply have a unusable CIA installed on your SD Card?

    and even if for some magical reason it would manage to install a non-legit cia he still would need something to run it.

    It won't install because it needs the signature checks patched to even install it. If they were patched, you could run it as well. If you installed it on 9.2, then updated, it would not run. Only legit ones run without hacks if they're installed... but at the same time, there's absolutely no reason you'd be better of un-hacking it.

    Even if you did get it installed, it will tell you that it cannot be launched and that you need to re-download it.

    Well there is 2 options

    Option 1: Nintendo will trace your location and send the SWAT team to your house to arrest you for piracy.
    Option 2: Your 3DS will explode taking your own and anyone else's in your house their lives.
    Option 3: Nothing

    As others have stated, it won't install. To add a little bit more context though, FBI installers (all of them) look at the the CIA's signatures to make sure that they match what's allowable (presumably to make sure that you don't end up with something unusable installed to your system). If you're in an environment without signature checks (i.e. an emunand with sigchecks turned off) the installers will blindly accept any cia thrown their direction, and install them accordingly, since there's no validation on if they're valid (or "legit" as the current terminology states).

    I would love to see option 1 happen and hear about it. Just a bunch of people swat into your house, and force update your 3ds.....

    Actually, never mind me censoring what I said above and saying that the post was "r00d", I've finally grown the balls to say that the OP is just simply trolling.

    I mean, it's common sense isn't it guys?! Why do we have sig-patches? Why do we have CFW? We wouldn't have any need for them if we could just simply do what OP is suggesting and install a CIA on >9.2 without having to apply any patches of some sort. :rolleyes:

    "You don't say", OP is a newcomer if you haven't noticed already; No ONE was born with the knowledge of hacking stuff , I just hate to see guys bashing what they know over someone else's face like , "you should already know this by now", god damn it , If it was that simple even a simple child would hack and downgrade a console


    Following the thread , You'll not be able to install it, it's that simple, but if you're on a FW below 10.3 , why don't give it a try and downgrade ?

    It just won't install. You'll get an error almost immediately when you try to install it.

    Oh, don't you judge someone by their date of arrival on the Temp! You're not too far behind him, you know. Think you know everything yourself? All well and good, but it's been over a month now, and I think he could've gathered what happens if you do install a CIA on a >9.2 3DS.

    Oh, and just for the record, I think retarded was the wrong phrase to use. I think just trolling on it's own will do. I'll edit my post.
