    Hi, I've got a .cia game but I prefer .3ds and I can't find links for it, I prefer to have the .3ds format because my sd card isnt that large.

    So how do I convert .cia to .3ds?

    Do you mean I have to follow the tutorial 'How to decrypt, extract and rebuild a CIA'?
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-decrypt-extract-and-rebuild-a-cia.388677/

    If so Im not sure I understand it, I dont understand the end point nor do I know if I can do it because when I .cia files I install I cant run them without booting gateway mode, which conflicts with running the "3DS multitool thing"
