    I am probably wrong but he could of just edited an update cia after extracting it. He would have needed to change some things like the id so that the 3ds knows it is a new update.. Then he compiled it back to a cia (I don't know if that is possible though).

    That's just it I have been wanting to know how to edit/decompile & recompile CIA files since forever. How do I do that?

    Are you asking to know how to edit and recompile an update or just a basic CIA? I'm the person on "that cia site" that you're referring to.

    Yea but no where tells you how they do it. No tutorials anywhere. I don't even understand it because a CIA is a final encrypted version of game Content. And even though we can make them we do t know the layout of a CIA

    lovely...
    but unless someone knows how to actually do this all we can do is sit in the corner and keep compiling the entire game to add 1 thing -__-

    For customising smash you can follow this tutorial but for SaltySD, you will need to make it yourself or you can find it on That iso site because the Secret file is a 1.1.4 modified update not a 1.1.5. For extracting decrypted cia files follow this tutorial
