Hello! I have a couple questions on brain dump... I would like to know if I could turn my physical games into digital. I am really clumsy and lose stuff really easily. I would like to know if there was any way to do that!

N3ds fw 11.0.0-33U

Braindump does not do this. Braindump allows you to get the game's files, not for converting physical to digital. Decrypt9 allows you to do that, however you need to be either on 9.2 or have arm9loaderhax (A9LH) in order to use it. In your case, you'd either need to get a hardmod or use another n3DS with custom firmware (CFW) to downgrade to 9.2.

I have a 3ds with 9.2 installed on it, could I potentially use that to put it on my 3ds?

Put what on your 3ds? Braindump or the digital copy?

Can you please explain it for me? (Sorry, I am a really bad noob

If I install it, what will I have to do?
Dude, give me time to type up a list of stuff you have to do.

1) Follow Part 1 to set up Homebrew.
2) Follow Part 3 to set up Luma3DS custom firmware.
3) Follow Section II - Injecting FBI from Part 4 to set up FBI, which is what you will use to install the digital version once you convert it to a .cia using Decrypt9.
4) Download and extract the latest releast of Decrypt9WIP. Move the 3ds folder from that zip to the root of your SD card. Make a new folder called files9 on the root of your SD card.
5) Access the Homebrew Launcher from your sysNAND then launch Decrypt9.
6) Go to Gamecart Dumper Options -> Dump Cart to CIA. It will then try to dump the physical cartridge and then convert it to a .cia. Exit Decrypt9 by pressing Start to reboot the system after it has finished dumping the cartridge.
7) Go to your emuNAND by accessing the Homebrew Launcher and selecting Luma3DS. After it loads your emuNAND, open your Health&Safety app which should now be FBI.
8) After FBI launches, go to SD and then go to the files9 folder. Your .cia file should be there. Press A on the .cia and then Press A on Install CIA.
9) Wait for it to install then press the Home Button to return to the Home Menu where you'll find your newly installed game.

Brains...brains.... wuoah.

No, just follow the directions for Section II only, as I stated in number 3.
Hello again, so i am on step 7 of section 2. I am not able to find the FBI_inject.app (can't remember the full name, but it was with banner.) I am not able to find that file in the health and safety dump option.

Did you add it to your SD card in the files9 folder?

Yup! I am planning to do that. Is there anyway i can get that on my other 3ds? (the one with 11.0) Or will it only be on the 3ds with emunand?
As of now, no, you cannot on the 11.0 system because of what I mentioned earlier about needing to downgrade. I'm not even sure if a system transfer from the 3DS with emuNAND to the 11.0 n3DS will transfer the installed CIAs.
