    Hi, I want to convert some (mainly my own) homebrew to the .cia format. If looked around and seen some homebrews in the .cia format so it should be possible. I played around with makerom for a bit (which should be able to make cia's) but without any luck.
    Can anyone help me with this? eg. A step by step (maybe even noob friendly) tutorial on how to make it. Links to needed files etc would be appreciated (unless they are official from Nintendo in which case help me Google them :P )

    I believe you need to make .3ds files and then convert them into .cia's

    Got it working already, thanks for the reply.
    Used 3dspaints way to make it. Now I only have to replace the 3DS paint text and image and stuffs but it runs my HB now so that's cool!

    Have a look at make_cdn_cia. You don't really need to make a 3ds to later make a cia out of it.
