    I'm trying to convert a game I edited to a cia and install it.
    I ripped my smash bros cart and decrypted, unpacked, edited and recompiled it back to a. 3ds file and put it on my gateway. The game along with the edit I did worked well so I wanted to install it. So I made xorpads and converted it to a cia file. But when I try to install it in rxTools Emunand I get that error at the very end of the installation at 100%
    Cia import failed. This cia is invalid (0xD8E0806A)
    That's In bigbluebox.
    As for fbi it says

    Installed failed
    Could not install app
    Raw error 0xD8E0806A
    Module:am (0x20)
    Level: permanent (0x1b)
    Summary: invalid argument (0x7)
    Description: Invalid signature (0x6a)


    My guess is because the cia is not signed? How do I get around it?

    Try devmenu and maybe an older version of FBI? (1.4.2 was pretty good). If the issue persists then maybe something went wrong with the conversion to CIA :/

    well, the modified cia must trigger some keys or not signed propertly....
    so it becomes invalid keys..
    normal cfw won't let u install invalid key cia:lol:

    btw, if a invalid cia installed in emunand, those cfw won't be able boot in again. unless u uninstall it.
    so, stay with gw;)

    only thing that happened is the manual button is gone for this game on main menu, nothing big.
