    Let's cut the shit: here are my DSiWare Conversion scripts. This allows you to copy DSiWare to your SD card from your DSi, and then convert them to a .NDS file (these files cannot run from a flashcart, don't ask!) for asset dumping, analysing, etc, or a .CIA file for installation on a 3DS!


    How To Convert To .NDS:

    1. Download the attachment from below and extract it
    2. Insert an SD card into your DSi(XL) and open System Settings
    3. Open Data Management and copy any DSiWare you want to convert to your SD card
    4. Remove Your SD Card and insert it into your PC. Navigate to SD:/private/ds/title/
    5. Copy all of the .bin files to the dsiware folder
    6. Run _BIN_To_NDS.nds, it should start showing you the names of the DSiWare titles you are converting
    7. All extracted .NDS files will be available in the output-nds folder.


    How To Convert To .CIA:

    1. Follow the above steps
    2. Run _NDS_To_CIA.bat, it should start showing the output names of your DSiWare titles
    3. Your .CIA files will be available in the output-cia folder

    You can use TWLoader to load NDS ROM's off an SD card. This is for DSiWare only.

    It said NDS, wasn't sure if DSiWare had it's own file extension, also it was the first post so I thought it'd be smart to ask early so no one else had to lmao

    No as in you can't just make a CIA out of it because lack of SD redir.

    And incase anybody cared, DSiWare's extension is SRL which is technically the "decrypted NDS" according to Nintendo but we use it for DSiWare ;)

    Props to you for this though, it makes it so much easier! :3

    This is for batch conversion of multiple DSiWare titles (.bin) to NDS/CIA.

    Gateway doesn't support DSiWare. Use Luma CFW.

    Can this do the reverse? NDS to bin? (Obviously you can't reimport it, just curious.)
