Can Uncart be used to dump NDS games?

    I thought I read somewhere there was unused code to dump NDS games.
    Was this ever implemented? It gives a few errors and freezes at 0% when I try to dump one.

    Nope I believe it only works on 3ds games.

    Ah, it must've never been implemented.

    Is there any way to dump NDS roms on a 3ds currently?

    Do you actually have any NDS games that aren't already dumped?

    Wait couldn't you just skip the hassle of dumping the carts and just download them from a site? It should be fine if you legally own the games.

    The best you can do in that regard is this:

    WoodDumper_DSiWare.rar

    Only problem is, you can't eject the cart. Due to that it only works on older flashcarts because they behave a bit odd compared to retail carts. (I'm not sure why they work with this. Perhaps they power cycle them selves if nothing has inited them)

    You sit there and hit A repeatedly and it will eventually init the card. Be sure to check that the CRC is consistent otherwise you'll get a bad dump (use X button to do this once the card is inited and it's connected to wifi. Note only DS compatible Wifi accesspoints can be used so you can't use newer encryption standrds like WPA, etc. Only WEP is supported).

    The cards I've confirmed this worked on is the DSTT and indirect confirmation from another user that their original R4 was able to init with this.

    Note to use that CIA you need patched TWL_FIRM since it's a custom SRL.

    You can also buy the 3 in one cart swapper from amazon (it's made by memorex fyi) for about 6 bucks. That can be used as a passme to "cart swap" without tripping the eject cart contact switch/pins on the main slot. (Just fiddle with the selector switch to make it re-init the cart)
