    Hello! Not sure where to post this thread, my best bet is this section, correct me if I got it wrong.

    Anyway, I've been looking for a while now and can't find a good way to rip a DS ROM without the SmallFTPD method. My home WiFi is incompatible with my DS (not that it matters now, since WFC was axed a month ago anyway) so that was never an option. Does anyone know of a way to do it otherwise? I have a few games that I'd like to dump and try to open up.

    My current toolbox includes a DS-Fat, an R4-SDHC card and a 3DS. And a computer. I could probably get my hands on a couple other materials, but I'd like to not spend more money if I can avoid it.

    These are some things I thought of, but wasn't able to find out of they were possible or not:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Is there anything anyone knows about this? Thanks!

    Edit: Going to keep trying my luck with connecting to WiFi like a normal person now. Though if anyone knows any other way, I'm still interested!

    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    If you can't use WI-FI then I think you need to buy a slot 2 device. here read this.

    FTP is going to be your best bet, which uses Wi-Fi so I don't know what to tell you besides make a "guest network" with minimal encryption and have it on only while you're dumping

    That or get a EZ-Flash 3-in-1

    I see, thanks.

    Just for me to make sure, *does* the FTP method still work now that WFC is gone? I've heard people say both, and if I could somehow get ahold of a compatible Internet for a day or so I might be able to do it that way.

    Edit: Someone told me it does. Which I guess makes my OP pointless. Thanks for the help anyway!
