    How to rebuild an ExeFS from code.bin, icon.bin and banner.bin ?

    For now, I use pk3DS for rebuild an ExeFS for Pokémon, but how, without pk3DS ?

    I just use 3dstool. The command I used for repacking smash updates last was:
    Code:
    3dstool -t exefs -c --exefs-dir exefs -f exefs.bin --header exefs-header.bin
    
    Haven't had any issues with that as far as repacking went. For grabbing the exefs-header.bin, just open the decrypted exefs you have and copy the first 0x200 bytes into another file. I think 3dstool might have a command to grab it but I don't think I had any luck in finding it :P

    They have a releases section with prebuilt binaries. It's a fantastic tool though.
