    Hi : ) This is for windows user
    You need some materials for banner, icon, wav (file size must be less than 381kb for wav) and get elf. last run .bat file!

    New version have to modify .bat file and .rsf file. I will update for the detail soon.

    Download "Special thanks: zoogie for very smart batch script."
    Credit to all the tools developers and RES!

    Wait, this allows you to extract the banner, icon, sound from a cia file then convert it all back into a cia when you're done editing it?

    Thanks for your contribution. But i prefer a ELF->code.bin..
    I have ways to compress code.bin, pack exefs and romfs, and pack CIA.
    All the steps could be easily done, except the elf to code.bin conversion.
    If you could ever think about how to do that, i could tell you how to pack that into exefs, with my own ExefsHdr and 3dstool.

    This is my old thread, talking about how to unpack/pack the exefs: http://4dsdev.org/thread.php?id=105 (But this requires compressed code.bin)
    And You can compress the code.bin simply, using this tool. http://pan.baidu.com/s/1mhxrNBE (If it says updating/404/whatever, try re-open the link)
    You might need to compile the code if the pre-compiled can not run, with MINGW/MSYS/MSYS2/GCC(On other OS).

    Every .elf file converted gets renamed to "MHX Quest Importer" by "svanheulen" when highlighted on the Home Menu for some reason.

    Is there a way to edit the app's title and developer name? (The information that appears when the icon is highlighted on the Home Menu) I already have a custom icon.bin that contains the modded title and information, but it looks like this tool only uses .png icons and not pre-packaged binaries.

    EDIT: Figured it out, the title and developer tags can be changed by editing makerom.bat with Notepad++

    Now whenever I StreetPass someone it says I've been playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess 3D. Thank you Februarysn0w! :)
