    Can someone help me to build a CIA from this ELF file with makerom?
    It is just the hello-world example included in ctrulib.

    I keep getting errors.

    Thanks.

    Not saying what the errors are doesn't really give us much to go on. If you're looking for a simple template project to build from that can also spit out CIAs, may I humbly suggest:

    https://github.com/thedax/3DSHomebrewTemplate

    Note that the Linux and Mac versions of makerom aren't updated for DKA r45 or ctrulib 1.0.0+ though.

    I'd really appreaiate
    Thanks, this builds fine. However, modifying icon.png, banner.png, and AppInfo do not affect the Icons, etc of the CIA after installing.

    If you try to install a CIA with the same title ID that's already installed, it won't update the icon/banner cache unless you first uninstall it from SD and then reboot, then install the new CIA.

    Did that but only the banner comes up. Not the title, publisher, or icon.

    So, you're coming from here. How old are you and the people on your friend list? Nine? Does your dad also work at Nintendo?

    I really don't need any stupid answers, I was planning on messing with my friends who are literally refreshing Serebii.net every hour.

    Here are the icons. I don't really care about the banners.

    Can you try to make the following:

    Publisher: Nintendo
    Long Name: Pokemon Z
    Short Name: Pokemon Z

    Apparently é symbols don't like 3dses

    It's just not the same without the é symbol
