Is it necessary to create a new ncchinfo.bin each time you add cias?

    I used Riku's Simple Cia Converter to make cias from ROMs, and added them successfully with FBI in my Cake CFW.

    My question is: each time I add more cias, do I have to create a new ncchinfo.bin, or can I just recycle the same one every time?

    You don't need it every time as long as you're not making .cias evry time. Simply download .cias on the internet no need to generate xorpads.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Cias are readily available? I had no idea.

    Do cias have to exactly match the dump? If I use a cia that was created from a different dump of the same ROM, will it fail?
