    So ever since freeshop stopped working for me i decdecd to try a new method of pirating(downloading .3ds files). I tired Riku's "3DS simple CIA converter" but was stuck on step 2. Once i created the ncchinfo.bin and placed it in my sd root folder, godmode9 does not have the option of "NCCHinfo options". Although version 5.0 states that there no need to have a XORpad, i do not understand the steps of using "boot9.bin" What are the exact steps of using that new method and how do i get said file (pressing Start+select+ X button+ power does nothing) ?
    Basically i have trouble generating XORpads with ncchinfo.bin with godmode9 and any helphis greatly appreciated

    Edit: Turns out Godmode9 can do the entire process by itself.

    Godmode9 only needs the .3ds file then just convert it
     
    Mlaq and Ryccardo like this.

    I had this problem myself. So, to batch convert easily on your PC (should much faster and also preserve the lifespan of your sd card):
    The tool: https://github.com/ihaveamac/3dsconv

    The steps I followed under ubuntu:
    1. Download Python3 and pip (I used ubuntu's apt-get; YMMV), then install pyaes with pip install pyaes
    2. Get your .3ds backups, boot9.firm and 3dsconv.py all into the same folder
    3. Into that folder, run python3 3dsconv.py --boot9=boot9.bin *.3ds
    4. ???
    5. Profit!

    Turns out godmode9 actually can convert .3ds files to .cia files! However some .3ds files seem to not be able to convert tho...
    Thank you very much
