    I am searching all over google, but I am looking for a working, and good CIA to 3DS file converter, and also then to convert the 3DS to CIA converter as well. Is there a suggested one? I am new to the CFW scene and just wanted to know what was the best to use.

    Thank you!

    Installed CIA to 3DS : You could dump your game using braindump , and repack using this

    3DS to CIA : Use this

    So how do i repack it to a .3ds file once I use braindump? the tutorial linked isnt very descriptive of whether I am repacking intoa .3ds file or not.

    Is it possible to encrypt the 3ds file to use it with sky3ds flashcard ?

    Yes, you can do it with Decrypt9 or GM9.

    I think you wouldn't be able to make working files for Sky3DS that way, as they have to be unmodified cartridge dumps, and 3ds files have more information than cia files?

    I wouldn't know. I came into the scene when people were raving about svchax allowing legit CIAs to be installed on 10.3, so I never had the need to mess around with a flashcart.
