    So say someone has a bunch of decrypted 3ds files. Can you go straight to CIA files without the xorpads process?

    Hey, I was having some trouble with converting a .3ds file, and was wondering if, perhaps, I was doing something wrong? I would read through the whole thread if it weren't 46 pages, so forgive me if I skimmed the first few pages and skipped the rest. ^^'

    I downloaded the 4.1 from the link in the first post, and then copied my .3ds file and the .xorpads into the directory with 3DS to CIA converter.bat. I opened the converter menu, selected option 1. I tried every alternative method (as it tells me to try all of them) and all of them fail to convert the .3ds to a .cia. Any suggestions? I can definitely give you more info if you need.

    I also tried to generate ncchinfo.bin, but it seems that the python code for that option does not work properly; it was automatically opened in my editor and it was pointed out that the print statements did nothing and there were a few references to variables that were undefined. I was going to try and go in to fix it, but I figured I'd better ask around in case I had the wrong files or something. :/

    I'd hate to spend an afternoon fixing something that there's already a fix for.

    Ok, i am trying to do this to get 3ds roms for Citra, and i am trying to use Mario and Luigi Dream team, but every time i use #6 (CIA to 3ds) it always comes up with this error saying could not read exheader file! Now i have only tried this rom with this program but i dont know if i need to update the program or not (using win7x64, not a 3ds, as i do not have an sdcard reader in order to homebrew...)
    EDIT: i do not have a micro sd card reader as i have a new 3ds
