    You can update them without problems as long as they are of the same region as the console, and nothing should happen to your Home Menu.

    If the ticket is valid you can install updates from the eShop for non Legit installed games.
    Yes, you can install DLC to them without problems.

    Can we install non legit dlc with a legit game (cartdrige) ?
    and can we play at super smash (no legit cia) with no legit dlc online with no risk?

    Yes, you can do both things, but you need to have CFW to do that.

    If I do the soundhax on 11.3 and load FBI through Homebrew can I load these legit cias on a stock 11.3 unit? I know Homebrew will load but will FBI work?

    No, we need an arm11 kernel exploit first

    That's what I figured. So legit cias seem to have no benefit that I can see. If you need to be CFW'd you can use whatever and fix your own tickets and stuff, right? I'm still way new at this stuff.

    you can install legit cias without CFW using an arm11 kernel exploit, that's the apparent advantage

    the eshop doesn't have cias. it has the files themselves. a TMD file which is a list of other files to download, and the other files.

    To get a CIA file from eshop, you have to pack it yourself.

    freEshop downloads the files and installs them directly
    CIAngel does the same, but can also compact them into a CIA file instead.

    So once installed, apps/games installed via freeShop and via CIAngel installations are the exact same as one another? How are they different than those installed through the eShop itself?
