    Sorry but for the moment i did not found the way to convert a .cia to 3ds
    It seems that it is not possible because a cia file contains less informations : cia is a 3ds file trunckated/trimmed so to get back a 3ds file you must "rgenerate" the missing part which is the issue :(

    baffles me that you would want to convert a .cia to a .3ds

    It takes quite a large amount of work to do so, would be simpler to just install the .cia (takes about 3 clicks assuming you use gateway). Also rumor has it .cia files may be safer if you plan on playing games online.

    Why would that baffle you? 3ds has its advantages over cia

    the reason i dont like .cia is that you need to open a .3ds rom then convert it while .3ds you can just run it off the gateway card
