    Hold up. Convert CIA TO 3DS? Does that mean eshop games can now be played using the Sky3DS?

    So then what is the point of converting CIA to 3DS?

    No, but you can download a game that is hard to find in cia and convert it to sky3ds

    Are you sure? Everyone else thinks otherwise.

    No you can't. 3DS files generated this way are not encrypted and thus cannot be launched through SKY3DS (at least on a retail 3DS, not sure about the dev units), because SKY3DS makes the console think it is an actual retail cartridge, and retail cartridges are encrypted.

    The problem with "cia to 3ds".converted ROMs on a Sky3DS are the signatures.
    They are completely broken / not present and therefore won't work with a Sky3DS.

    No you can't (aint'I repeating myself a bit here?). You cannot encrypt code that easily, as it uses asymmetric encryption, the fact that you can decrypt it doesn't mean you can encrypt it that easily. You'd need Nintendo's private key to encrypt a 3DS file, and AFAIK this has not been leaked nor bruteforced, so nobody's able to do that except for Nintendo's higher-ups.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    You are slightly mistaken. The code is still signed, it is just not encrypted (or encrypted with a 00'd key if you prefer).


    Also I think this thread belongs to either the ROM Hacking, Translations and Utilities section or the Flashcards & Custom Firmwares section, but certainly not this one. Mods please move this thread to the appropriate section.

    Seeing how this guy doesn't know a thing about how 3DS encryption works, I am quite not surprised.
