    i have created this script to automatize the process of changing themes in cia format to be used with CHMM, and its really easy to use, ive included everything that you will need and a tutorial with screenshots for the non automated parts , you only need python 2.7 and 3ds that can run the ds exploit to use it, any questions regarding it ill try to answer them asap

    here is the everything you will need



    https://www.dropbox.com/s/1n7tnoed17j66e1/CIA themes to CHMM.zip?dl=0

    Note: if by any chance you get a theme cia that is encrypted please upload it for me to correct the script according to the situation

    man thats out of my hand, i just learned how to do this and made this script, i suppose you could, but why would you want to? chmm its easier to use and you never risk going to the eshop and getting it deleted

    Google Chrome blocks your download. Not that it matters, just wanted to let you know.

    On US consoles there is a free Sonic theme, but I'm not sure if anyone's bothered to dump it.

    It might have already been asked, but, there's still no way to convert .CIA themes to CHMM compatible format with a N3DS without GW / from computer only, right?

    See no reason you can't seeing as you can generate xorpads with ninjhax now on N3DS so no gateway or old3ds needed.

    Oh well, I think I could manage to generate the xorpads, but kamesenin888s tutorial looks awfully complicated (no offense meant). Plus, it seems you won't get proper names for extracted themes anyways, so that would mean a lot more work. I think I might take a pass on that.

    'content delivery network' = server :)

    just use FunkyCIA to download the EUR themes and you will get this included. 99.99% sure
