    Hi guys

    Would anybody be kind enough to advise the easiest / best way to convert .3ds ROMs to .cia as these were used when using gateway but have now installed a9lh and believe its not just a case of simply copying .3ds roms to the card and playing / installing. Instead you need .cia files and these are then installed using FBI.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Rename decrypt9wip.bin to Y_d9.bin and put in the luma/payloads folder
    Put .3ds in /files9/d9game (If it doesn't exist make one)
    Boot 3ds holding Y and content options then select:
    NCCH/NCSD -> CIA converter

    Your game will become .cia and will be in the /files9/d9game folder

    You can use an android phone that reads mircosd card (And if one old 3ds/2ds a mirco to sd adapter)

    Decrypt9WIP converted CIA doesn't support GW mode due to GW's bad support of signature patching.
    Please abandon GW mode and use CFW to install those CIAs instead.

    See Decrypt9WIP closed issues.
    BTW, those CIAs will fail at 99% progress of installation in GW mode.

    Then it has no problem.
