    Hi Guys, sorry to bring you a noob question that may well have been anwsered elsewhere. But...

    Is there currently a way to back up your own genuine 3DS game rom's using a 3DS backup tool like you can with the NDS backup tool (over wifi)?

    I have 2 small children using 3DS's and I like to keep the orginal carts in the boxes so they don't have to swap cart's all the time saving me from playing hunt the missing cart on a regular basis.

    I am using an R4i Gold card for 3DS and I can back up and play all the NDS games.

    Thanks in advance.

    There is no way you could play them even if you could dump them (you can't) as nothing plays 3DS ROMs.

    Greetings, Hoyan!
    Welcome to GBAtemp. :grog:

    Keeping one young child happy is a full-time job by itself, (let alone two)
    so in this case I believe we can forgive you for missing the stickied threads. ^_^

    As has been stated, there is unfortunately no way to back up 3DS games,
    nor play any such back ups at this time.
    There have been the first hints at possible flashcarts for the 3DS
    but so far none have become available for purchase,
    and in my opinion it doesn't look as though any will for a good long while.

    I'd recommend checking our front page on a regular basis,
    as any news regarding breakthroughs in this area will certainly be posted there.
