    is there anyway to convert downloaded eshop games back to CIA to reinstall on another CFW console easily (trying to avoid a friend waiting 7 days for system transfer), we can backup saves, but to mass install 30 games would take a day.

    Yes if the source console is modded - Decrypt9 and Godmode9 have features to pack installed software back into a cia (you just need to know the titleids, which you can see by selecting them in FBI/DevMenu)

    Thank you then once packed into CIA itll save on the SD, I can put the SD in the other console and reinstall CIAs as fresh and import back in the saves? How long usually to export a CIA though, is it the same speed as downloading.

    Well, that assumes you want to give your friend your SD... copying the cia to their SD is done through a computer/phone/etc

    Faster than downloading on console for sure
