There are several 3DS roms with the extention of *.3DS.
These roms are said to be dumpted out by LGC.

We have a look with hex editor.
We do find "CTR" & "Nintendo" strings in these roms.
But we find no arm or thumb instructions in these roms.

As we know, Nintendo 3DS is using arm based CPU just the same as that of NDSi & NDSL.

There should be ARM and thumb instructions in these roms.


Besides, have LGC run these roms successfully?
How do they run these games? With emulators ?

Have they released a video?

The most interesting thing is that the picture attached with these roms showed they had dumped out 3DS rom with a NDSL.

How do you think of it?

The emulator decrypt these roms in real time?

It sounds impossible.

I dont think there is a way to run them yet but the .3DS games might come differently packed than other ds games.
legacy has said they worked on their hardware so they must have a means to run them

they have claimed in their NFO that they can play them

so take it as it is

i doubt it's bogus, just time for other teams to pickup

i doubt scene release groups release videos about this matter anyway.

Wow, thats pretty amazing. The 3DS might have a flashcart sooner than expected.

Legacy runs a special hardware connected to the 3Ds to play them and also rom them


There is no video to proove.
Do you still remeber "Hello world" released by someone here?

If these roms have run successfully, "hello world" may be a genuine one.

Actually, the ROMs have already been dumped before the LGC, they just weren't released to the public. Proof is the 'CXI' page in 3dbrew and the discussion for that page.
Also, the ROMs are encrypted, so it isn't really unexpected that they don't contain ARM instructions.

Ppl should know Legacy is a well know scene group and i don't think the will ruin there name with some crappy not legit
rom dumps. Most old skool scene followers should know that if Legacy says the can, then the can, no video proof needed for that.
First dumps of NDS by DarkFader was also questioned, but turned out to be true

And i think it should be wise by Legacy not to reveal to many info about how on this whole matter, it's just to early for now to release
this all. Ppl should give a console time to get mainstream and get descent releases and support before doing the whole
dumping thing for backup purpose (we all know how that tuns out for ages) every retro console hacked was for backup purpose and turned out to be for piracy.

Maybe copiers/backup devices and devices to run those backups should be back way more expensive, like it used to be for all those retro consoles Neo-Geo/SNES/MD/NES/GG/SMS/PC-E/GB/GBC/N64 and early GBA so it doesn't get to mainstream anymore.

No, you need a new flashcart altogether. Sadly, updating the current ones to play 3DS rom is not possible. You need new hardware to play 3DS roms.

Definately a new one that can run on 3DS mode. Greece ftw!

why new one

just needs to have a flashable bootloader

3DS games load in the same way

may be only able to load one 3DS game at a time tho
