    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    I've done a lot of searching on Google and on this website and I have come to the conclusion that it is possible to backup an nds cartridge with the ezflash 3in1 but I am doing something wrong. I've tried Rudolph's slot 2 backup tool and it freezes at "reading of file list" and displays rom information at the bottom and does nothing else. When I try any of rudolphs 3in1 tools it says it doesn't detect a card. Oh and I'm using an acekard 2i with a ds lite. (p.s. I can't use the wifi dumper because I can't Connect to my wifi with my ds due to wpa security)​

    You sure you can't change it to open security at least temporarily? That's what I do.

    I know that there is no real security risk but I don't really want to do it. On a side note, How long does it take for the wifi rom dump?

    Hmmm.... There is a library nearby. If I connect my laptop and my ds to the wifi there could I do it there?

    Libraries tend to block most ports, so unless you try to use port 80 or something I don't think it'll work.

    Ok. I'll try it tomorrow. Can I backup saves also? And if yes can I put them back onto a retail cart?

    Why don't you use savegame manager DS? Since it supports Ez Flash 3in1 you can also recover with the SLOT 2 flashcard, if not you are gonna have to use the pain in the ass wifi process.

    Fix your freezing issue by using the correct ak2_sd.dldi first.

    how_do_i_do_that Do you mean dldi patch it? I though acekard did that automatically though. I guess I'll try it. Please tell me if you mean something different.

    When I did a wifi dump it didn't take that long.. I forget but it was less than an hour for a ~250 MB game.

    Either way, 3in1 dumping is temperamental and the software hasn't been updated in an age.

    Copy the ak2_sd.dldi from the official firmware in the __ak2 to your __aio folder on your MicroSD, overwriting the AKAIO ak2_sd.dldi.

    After you do that, the freezing issue will go away and you will be able to use the backup tool without it locking up.

    DIdn't work. Still freezes at "reading of filelist" on slot 2, and not detected on 3in1 backup utility. :(

    Yes I'm using that version, and I'm using 0.31 (3in1) and 0.4 (slot2)
