    If you bought it, you can use decrypt9 to extract the title.db and then use groovycia to download it and make a cia out of it. Dont think you can extract them if they are "not legit" cias

    well look at that xD
    uhh
    I use braindump for the HBL btw
    It dumps to .cxi format, which can be extacted with Asia81's hackingtoolkit :)
    then rebuilt with the same tool to .3ds
    then build it as a .cia like you would with any .3ds file

    i actually tried braindump. Though technically i was not able to try it because its not launching when selecting it from hbm. I downloaded the zip from github. It only has 2 files (braindump.3dsx, braindump.xml). Am i missing something like a .smdh file?

    i think this guide is only for dumping carts and not e-shop games?

    that is the one i tried :/ how do you lunch your HBL? From boot or using the cia hbl? Because my only entry point is the cia one. Menuhax is not working anymore on my A9LH sysnand.
