    Hi sorry if there is an obvious guide or something I must have missed it. Please kindly point me to it.

    I need to convert .3ds->.cia back to .3ds as I have lost my original .3ds, I am thinking if it is possible to use the repacked .cia to recreate the .3ds.

    Secondly, those dev tools (e.g. SDK-6.2.0\DevMenu.cia) came in .cia format and those are not installable, is there a way to repack them with null key?

    Thank you!

    I believe I read somewhere that the .cia's from the dev tools only worked on the leaked CFU, if you want them to work try converting the .csu file that came with some of the tools into a .cia, that's what I did.

    As for the .3ds->.cia, I don't know if you can convert back but I would recommend just redownloading (or dumping) the original .3ds
