    Well CIA's are just packages so just go and get a CIA Packager (I think that's what there called anyway)

    You need to start from the homebrew compiled as ELF (or convert the homebrew from a .3ds, but those are less common than cias lol), then you also need a banner and icon (there's a python tool to create basic static, 2d ones that just fly up a little when you blow in the mic), and you need to know what services the app uses, as they must be specified into the banner.

    Anyhing released as 3dsx only that uses "choose a base game" feature of the launcher can't be ported this way (with any reasonable functionality). Not that you can readily convert 3dsx to cia anyway!

    Ok that's cool, but could there be a possibility of a CIA Packager though. We could make one. That would be cool to.

    I see, if there isn't any .ELF so nobody can do CIA?

    Yeah, you should ask the developer (or someone who is willing to do it for you, and is already skilled in compiling homebrew from source!)
