    I tried that one, and I had trouble setting it up. I asked for help, but never got what I needed.

    It depends on what you are trying to convert from 3DS to CIA.

    If it's a simple 3DS game, the above solution is better. Make the XORPADs and you're good to go.

    But if you are trying to hack or modify the ROMFS filesystem or similar, the best solution (personally at least) is this:

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-3ds-to-cia-by-katsu.384381/

    Or "3DS To CIA Converter v4.1" over at the other MAX forum.

    Simple CIA Converter is the best option IMO. It's definitely the easiest way and it hasn't failed me yet

    Simple CIA Convertor is a great tool & super easy to use, I've always preferred 3ds to cia by katsu like MDashK linked to

    I think the first one is supposed to be easier, I used the second one but that was before the first one even existed and it was the best one at the time.
    In the end both will work pretty similarly.
