    You can't dump a full cartridge without the Gateway menu currently.

    I thought you could with rxTools? That doesn't matter anyway, as I can just downgrade to 4.5.

    why you need to downgrade just to backup a cartridge?
    just use gateway in any system <= 9.2 (either by go gateway site or with the new gw.3dsx in release 3.6.2)
    give it a try

    I have searched there.

    Let me rephrase my original question. Can anyone tell me how to, or give me a link that will explain how to extract a header?
