I have looked and looked for like two days now all i want to do is change the displayed name and icon of the switch game and i have the edited nca file i want to use with those changes in them.
But my problem is i have no way to compile them back together into an nsp file/xci file. Since their just edits of the secure folder it should be easy but alas i cannot for the life of me find a program that will work.

I tried NSPack Tool, it doesn't work at all. all it does is creates an NSP file thats roughly 332kb when the game itself is 2.0GB.
I tried NSCB and it refuses to work properly it creates nothing when i add all of the files it needs.
I tried HacPackGUI and i get errors about the keys being wrong or some shit.

If anyone has any idea on how to get this to work please let me know, Cause the icon and name data is something i would like to change lol

1.Create blank file keys.dat
2.Open keys.dat as text and print 2 lines

header_key = ae....................2d
key_area_key_application_00 = ef................69

3.Copy keys.dat to the directory hackPack

You can look for the titlekey on the Internet.

    I keep Facebook around for oauth2 (though Google largely fills the same roll for me these days) and Messenger. I rarely ever use the website, the app is set to not run in background on my phone and has all notifications disabled. Hopped on today to list a few things for sale/free in my area and just spent more time today scrolling up and down than I ought to
