    Since you're using A9LH, you can use Decrypt9WIP to do that. I don't have my 3ds right now to check, but it should be as easy as putting your .3ds games in the folder "SD:/D9Game", and use the option "Convert CCI to CIA" (or something like that, i don't really remember)

    The correct path would be Content Decryptor Options -> CIA Builder Options -> Build CIA from NCCH/NCSD.

    1. Download Decrypt9WIP and extract it.
    2. Move Decrypt9WIP.bin to your luma/payloads folder on your SD card.
    3. Rename it to down_Decryp9.bin. For other names, see here under Payload Chaining.
    4. Put your SD card back into your system and hold down the button you assigned Decrypt9 while you power on the system.
    5. Follow the path I mentioned earlier to turn your .3ds to a .cia.

    If you don't have it, make a folder called files9 on the root of your SD card. Make a folder called D9Game inside of that files9 folder. Place your .3ds file inside of the D9Game folder.

    Isn't the D9Game folder supposed to be on the root of the SD card? Or have paths changed since?

    You're welcome! :)

    According to the repo for Decrypt9WIP, it goes in files9. Although, it probably did change to be in files9 at some point or another.
