    Hey! I finally finished installing A9LH and Luma 3DS and have a few quick questions regarding CIAs and ROM hacks.

    1. If I download a .CIA, am I supposed to "repair" the software through the eShop? I saw one download mention that and want to make sure it doesn't apply to all.

    2. Can I update .CIAs safely through the eShop? If so, are there any downsides to this?

    3. If I want to get a copy of Rutile Ruby, can I bypass the ASLR patch that prevents me from using my cartridge save?

    4. Is there any way without Gateway (I don't have it) to export my physical copies of games to .CIA files?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. No you don't have to do it with all cia's, some legit cia's require it though.
    2. Yes you can, obviously only if the game is the correct region for your console, I wouldn't say there is a downside to it. You can always update via a cia of the update if its available if you don't want to do it that way.
    3. Not sure about that one, sorry.
    4. Cartridges can also now be dumped using decrypt9, you can get that here - Releases · d0k3/Decrypt9WIP · GitHub
    It's a new'ish feature that I haven't tried yet but if d0k3 has added it to his tool I'd say it works fine.
    There is another homebrew app called uncart but I don't think it worked too well
