    Hi guys, I've been trying to convert my 3ds files to cia, but I'm stuck on the step where I have to get the xorpads of the game. I can't launch the launcher.dat because the Nintendo DS profile trick doesn't work on higher firmwares.

    I'm on a 2DS so downgrading is no option. How do I get these damn xorpad files without using the DS profile trick?

    I've been trying to use this tutorial:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-converting-3ds-to-cia-for-dummies.373722/

    I tried to use the search function, but apparently "CIA" is too short for a search.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Nobody got a solution for that?

    I can't be the only 2DS owner with that question here.

    Assuming that the web browser doesn't properly load the xorpad launcher, it doesn't seem like there'd be any way to do this on anything other than a standard 3DS or XL.
