    Sadly no. The 3DS won't recognize the cartridge if you hotswap cartridges in DS-mode, and sudokuhax doesn't have access to the cartridge slot AFAIK.
    It would be possible to do it with 3DS-mode homebrew (would possibly require kernel access/CFW though), but no one's made a tool to do it yet.

    That's a bummer, I wish hoping you could so I wouldn't have to fiddle with my internet settings just to connect my DS

    I think uncart can do this, however, you need to run it under MSET: https://github.com/Normmatt/uncart

    I have a build somewhere that does dump NDS games as I was able to dump my Action Replay NDS with it for science purposes, but I'm not sure if the version on GitHub here has those capabilities.

    I stand corrected - it does seem to support NDS games. At least, there are files named protocol_ntr and command_ntr, as well as protocol_ctr and command_ctr. ntr most likely stands for nitro, the NDS codename.

    It does, if memory serves, also support TWL, but I'm not sure.
