    Hi. I just installed homebrew onto my Nintendo 3DS, and I found a list of a lot of apps and games. When I click on the (Github) links, there's no .cia or .3dsx (I'd prefer cia) file. So is there some way I can turn a bunch of Github files into a .cia file? Could I do this from the linux command line? Thanks!

    That's the exact guide that I followed. It doesn't tell me how to install apps, though.

    most git projects do not have the final "product/binary" in the git-tree, but under "releases"

    Perhaps you could give an example of what github links you are referring to, and where you are finding these github links? Because no, you generally do not "turn a bunch of Github files into a .cia file".

    of course there is a way to convert files from github in to cia
    install dev environment & compile it yourself
    although i cannot actively verify this, as i never did that
    but that's the point of open-source
    but i want a ready-made cia, too (see my previous answer above)

    wording in the guide is sub-optimal
    "Point 15 Launch FBI" should be "Point 1 Launch FBI" of the "Section IV Install CIAs" Heading

    That's what the guide tells you. For the first time, you have to use the download play app. There is nothing wrong worded...
