Replace %02X with the first two digits of the second half of the title ID (passing in 10 works fine) and %016llX with the 16-digit title ID. the last %d is the version number.

If you just want the latest icon, you can also use

nn_idbe contains hardcoded keys in one 0x50 sized block (0x10 * 5), consisting of the 16-byte hardcoded IV, and 4 hardcoded 16-byte AES-128 keys.

In OSv10 (000500101000400A), the keys are located at $.rodata+0x4c of nn_idbe.rpl.

Here are the keys:

IV = "A46987AE47D82BB4FA8ABC0450285FA4" 

K0 = "4AB9A40E146975A84BB1B4F3ECEFC47B" 
K1 = "90A0BB1E0E864AE87D13A6A03D28C9B8" 
K2 = "FFBB57C14E98EC6975B384FCF40786B5" 
K3 = "80923799B41F36A6A75FB8B48C95F66F" 

AES_KEYS = [K0, K1, K2, K3]
