    was using rxTools to generate XORpads . i put slot0x25keyX.bin and ncchinfo.bin onto my SD card and i get this erorr

    Too many/few entries , or wrong version of ncchinfo.bin!
    could not open SDinfo.bin

    can someone help me ? am i using an outdated tool to get ncchinfo.bin ? or am i being a dummy?

    Errrm... I use the CIA Converter from the Gateway Support Forum somewhere on MaxConsole, and that gives you two options when generating the ncchinfo.bin - one for 4.x firmwares and one for higher. Could it be you're using an ncchinfo.bin made for a 4.x firmware on a higher system?

    If you're only interested in generating xorpads for actual roms ( .3ds files ), then just ignore the SDinfo.bin thing, it isn't needed for that purpose.

    Well just use Decrypt9 then instead if you can, roxas really needs to remove/separate that from that part into its own thing.
    The other alternative is, directly decrypt the rom itself with the decrypt CTR titles (or whatever its called) option.

    i've downloaded decryptor9 and it's just more tools to generate ncchinfo.bin and such . how does this let me skip the SDinfo.bin part of rxToolss XORpad generation ? sorry for dumb questions im new to this whole rxTools thing

    Yeah exactly. But the options are separate and it doesn't bitch at you about SDinfo.bin like rxtools does.

    well even if i do get nchhinfo.bin and such from this thing , rxTools is still going to detect no SDinfo.bin .

    Just ignore rxtools for a minute, use Decrypt9 to generate your xorpads. :)

    You use the first one for games, the other one is for theme files (won't get into that at the moment).

    You shouldn't be getting either of those errors if you're using Decrypt9 with the generated ncchinfo.bin. Sounds like you're trying to use the generated ncchinfo.bin with rxTools, which won't work (as far as i know).

    Are you sure your ncchinfo.bin is valid? Check the file size. If it’s only 16bytes, then you have a blank file.

    i've solved that problem but now i need SDinfo.bin because rxTools needs it for what ever reason :/
    do you know how to generate SDinfo.bin ?

    are you sure your using legit retail .3ds roms? and not a modded one?

    just now I generated a xorpads of Zelda OOT using rxtools 2.6 and even though the "Could not open SDinfo.bin error" appeared, I still got my xorpads on my sd card

    I belive sdinfo.bin is not need for xorpad generation of .3ds roms

    honestly I don't know much about .3dz files, I just rip my cart used the ncchinfo_gen.py on rxtools 2.6 and used the ncchinfo.bin to generate the xorpads
