and so then on to pirating it from some cia site and heading to fbi, weee...wait, crap, unless fbi has precautions too

Nope, won't work as both freeshop and fbi rely on built in system functions to install a game. You would need to extract and modify data in the cia to remove the n3ds only flag. Most likely you would also need to set APPMEMTYPE to either 2 or 3 in the header to have enough RAM to even try to run it. Then hope it doesn't do something stupid like deliberately not using any RAM below 64MB similar to how win32s would allocate memory above 512MB (and then map some real memory up that high since nobody had anything close to 512MB RAM at the time) specifically to prevent it from working in OS/2.

still, I've said it once and I'll say it again, it's bs some of the games they try to say are n3ds exclusive
