    I've seen numerous CIAs that say they are region free hacked (and they are, Project Mirai 2 runs great), but how do I do this myself? I would first need to convert from 3DS to CIA, which there are plenty of threads about. I have a 3DS of New Love Plus Plus (JP) and I want to patch it so I can install and play it with Pasta CFW.

    These tutorials are based off having a GW and being on FW 4.5, I don't have either of those things. I'm running Pasta CFW on 9.2.

    I created two CIA today using your soft, Riku. (v2.0b)
    I can't try on another region 3DS but are these CIA supposed to be region free?

    No, those are region locked. To create region free CIAs use v3.0, I released it just a few hours ago (RegionFree+MinFW Spoof+Batch file processing added).

    Well I don't need it so I'm gonna keep the CIAs I created today using v2.0b but I'll take this new version for the future conversion.
    Otherwise, great work, really easy to use.

    Bump.

    What if I found a CIA and want to make it a region-free CIA?

    I posted that a while back, but I actually found myself an answer. If you own RxTools, it doesn't need to be region-free, but if you'r not, check if your emuNAND supports Region Free or not.
