Can this be done in Emunand 9.5 or Sysnand 9.2 Or do I have to downgrade to 4.5 Sysnand to get them?
Want to convert my 3DS files into CIA's but need Xorpads for them apparently. Is there another method I missed when reading up on this?

Edit: Found what I was looking for by reading Apache Thunder post on max console but now my new question is can I generate the Xorpad using a 3DS or 3DZ game on my gateway card?

OK got it working finally after using alternate option 3 but it did give me a warning that the CIA was missing common key and will not be encrypted should I worry about that at all?

No, it'll work fine. And fyi in future, you might want to ease up on the double, triple, quadruple posting. The mods don't appreciate it too much. :P

lol my bad its 6am im trying to get all this stuff setup before my gateway card comes but I have 2 more questions
Can I share my xorpads for my pokemon Y dump with others so people have an easier time making a CIA ?
Also if I do share these 5 xorpad files can my header be found in them even if it gets converted back into the 3DS format?

Sure, but if you're already uploading a ~2GB file of arguably illegal contents, wouldn't it be easier to just share the .cia with them, or for them to download it from somewhere else? If you're wanting to avoid sharing copyrighted material, probably best to just get them to generate the xorpads themselves.

No, the cart header isn't a part of the encrypted partitions. They could only get that if you shared your original ROM dump with them.

Ok good I thought the generated CIA contained my header information that why I wanted to just share the xorpads.

CIA files don't have that header info, that's only a feature of physical carts and their ROM dumps. Once you convert to CIA it loses that.
