    XCI-Explore.

    A good management tools for our XCI files.
    its not perfect, but it does the job needed, extracting certs., injecting them, trimming the ROMs, splitting them, and so on.

    THIS TOOL CUTS FASTER THAN XCI-CUTTER
    You will need to find your own keys

    This is not my release

    Thanks @NotMii for his efforts updating support

    Good, probably worth it for those who are managing to do research on XCI games.

    I could see many uses for this such as changing cert when cart id start being blacklisted

    A place to share ones would be awesome

    @Type_O_Dev if that's the same archive then you have to remove the keys to comply with this site's rules.

    First file I tried was Zelda and it gave me a missing keys error. Opened it with XCI Cutter, trimmed it and it worked perfect.

    Can also confirm that this doesn't load after launching the exe. I extracted all the contents in the zip to a folder.

    This does not load because you need to fix the keys

    Does this have the same trimming compatibilty as XCI cutter? Also does this tool just overwrite the original rom?
    I was using XCI Cutter but it creates two of every rom which is a ton of disc writes on my HDD. Then I have to delete the old rom after.

    error.

    Hi!

    From 77 xci files i opened with XCI explorer ONLY these games gave me errors when opening with XCI Explorer:
    • 1.2.Switch.PROPER.NSW-BigBlueBox
    • Sushi Striker - The Way of Sushido
    • Rocket.League.NSW-BigBlueBox
    I tried to download from many different places and it's always the same error with those games.
    Anyone has the same problem?

    *my windows is on portuguese brazillian language.

    I have the full source code and everything built on github[dot]com/StudentBlake/XCI-Explorer/releases
    Can't post hyperlinks so if you want to add that, maybe someone will continue development.

    1-2 Switch works perfect, but rocket league still gives the error message. I'm starting to think its a bad xci.

    I'll download Rocket League and check it out
    EDIT: It's not a bad XCI, seems there is more work to be done.
    EDIT2: Please check the Github for release v1.0.0.2 that fixes Rocket League. I made a modification to something that has to do with partitions, so I'm sure how it'll affect trimming the XCI/extracting NCAs. Let me know if you find other games that don't work.
