    Is there a tutorial on ripping game updates from your 3DS? Couldn't find anything :/ (N3DS running A9LH)

    IIRC there is some very WIP software that dumps games to .cia, idk about updates tho.

    edit: that is a gateway tutorial, link removed

    That is Decrypt9WIP, but it dumps only cartridge and convert it to CIA.

    As for the OP question, i think there is no method to directly extract a CIA from something installed. The only way is to download them using CIAngel, for example
