    Howdy everyone! I've noticed that a few of the games I have in my collection aren't in any of the main sharing lists, I own them in cartridge form and have been wanting to turn them into 3ds roms so that I could upload them. My 3ds I have at my disposal is a N3ds running 9.2 on its sysNand and 10.7 as its emuNand. All of the tutorials I've found are for much older methods and only use either flashcards or gateway.
    Anyway I digress I'm not huge in the software development scene but if a method to clone these cards doesn't exist I might look into it from another angle.
    Cheers!

    Best most reliable way is to use Gateway card's firmware. You don't need the Gateway flashcart for some features, like gamecard dumping.

    Download this
    Downloads | Gateway
    Fish out the Launcher.dat file, put it on your SDMC, then launch it using the GW.3dsx homebrew also included (on 9.2). There will be an option 'Backup Cart', select that and wait. The file, XXXX.3ds, will be dumped to the 3ds's SDMC card. That's all there is to it.

    So the newest version of Decrypt9 can dump carts.
