    My tips.

    1) If you need to use a camera, use something other than the 3DS. The 3DS camera is shit.
    2) If you need to listen to music, use something other than the 3DS. The 3DS music app is shit.

    Its a quite involved procedure, but here it is:

    1. Dump your 3ds nand (if 4.5 or less)
    2. Decrypt it using https://github.com/Relys/3DS_Multi_Decryptor
    4. Mount the fat16 partition (open the image file as a fat drive) with OSFmount or something else. You can image it to an sd card using win32diskimager too.
    3. Find the title id's of music and camera apps on 3dbrew.org (did that part for your assuming you have a EUR 3ds)
    4. Go to /title/00040010/00022400/content/000000XX.app for camera and (/00022500/) for sound app
    5.Decrypt the larger .app file using https://github.com/Relys/3DS_Multi_Decryptor
    6. dump the Romfs with ctrtool.exe
    7. go through the Romfs and look for strings in a hex editor to find your tips.
    8. you likely aren't going to do all these steps, but they'll be here if you do.

    I have to agree with emigre here, you are better off using another device for these purposes! If you have any smartphone, it is lightyears better than what the 3DS has to offer in that department.
