    how do i make my custom theme into a cia?

    i made this theme and its 99.9% done. its ready but ExtDataTool and CHMM just give me a ton of trouble. from freezing to Error: [string "?"]:91: error writing file, to faulty looping. im not sure if installing themes will fix it but it seems like a good idea. and plus it would be a more professional way to distribute themes.

    @Reisyukaku i heard you have done it.

    thanks, this does make a cia and its easy.
    but im getting a error
    [CIA WARNING] Common Key could not be loaded, CIA will not be encrypted
    and 3ds dosent want to install it.
    does this need a nand.fat16.xorpad by chance because that i have. a slot0x25KeyX.bin i do not... and i hear that slot0x25KeyX.bin is not required for 9.x...idk

    I've only successfully installed my cia packed themes using Reinand.
    Gateway has a problem with it / them, likely due to the lack of encryption error.

    That may be a quick fix around the issue but I'd like to fix it instead of avoiding it. My primary is gateway mode and I only use reinand for gba and I learned that gba doesn't "run" in emunand anyway but in the sysnand. I need to figure out what that error is. Where do I get a common key..
