    Godmode 9.
    Copy all files, select all files and save the .cia to gm9out.

    I put it my payloads and hold X but decrypt9 comes up.

    In readme it says:
    You may now run GodMode9 via holding the X Button (or any other button you chose) at startup. See below for a list of stuff you can do with it.

    What version of Luma are you using? Update it to 7.0.5, then press Start on boot. You should now see a chainloader on your screen. From there, Select GodMode9.

    Got it. Then I got to SD look for the particular .3ds file click on it. choose NCSD image option.Choose decrypt and then to 0:/gm9out ? And then it's cia?

    Hmm great. just wish there was a PC version and batch.. this is gonna take forever with 100 files transferring back and forth.

    Why don't you install the games using freeshop?

    I would prefer to convert all the games I already have downloaded, then redownload everything.

    Wow yeah actually did not think of that. could be a good solution! Easier then converting it seems.for a number of games.

    Just some are translated copies. So I will still have like atleast 5 games or so to convert. (and im not sure freeshop has all i have)

    Anyway the convert came out in gm9out and it was the exact same .3ds file seemingly? Whats the point?
