Hi!, recently I joined GBAtemp in hopes I could help a person half way across the earth from me to dump an unreleased 3ds game, but unfortunately their console broke. Luckily they said that they had a nand backup of the console so all would be good if we could decrypt the nand and dump the game.

However, I was confused that when they sent it over (in case I found a method to decrypt it without their 3ds even though that seems unlikely), that it was in .img format instead of .bin like most nand backups.

Will GM9 read it normally as nand, or does it need to be in .bin? If so then how do I convert it to .bin? Thanks!

Creating multiple threads about this will not change the facts.
  • You can try mounting the image with ninfs. If a not very old GodMode9 has been booted on the bricked 3DS, it likely has embedded essentials.exefs.
  • As far as I know GodMode9 will not mount images from different consoles even if essentials.exefs is present.
  • If the keys are missing, the only hope is reviving the bricked console.

Sadly I have no other ideas – really would like to give a more positive answer.
