    Hi!

    I'd like to know if I can dump my cartridge (Inazuma Eleven 3 Ogre) without the Gateway Card. I am on 5.1 so I can launch the exploit without Gateway, isn't it?

    Thanks.

    you dont need the card to make a dump. you should be able to do it if you can launch it into gateway mode

    Worked for me. I was able to dump several of my own cartridges without an actual Gateway cart. I'm on 4.2, though it shouldn't make much difference.

    Depends on the size of the game and writing speed to your sd card. And make sure to plug the console to the charger so that it doesn't turn of automatically and do not eject the SD card when dumping.

    The speed doesn't matter till you have enough space on your sd card. ;)

    I need to dump my games as well. Is there a way to do it without even a DS flash card or leaving any crap on my 3ds?

    Yeah, there is, by using Gateway exploit, you don't need any flashcard for that. But, what is the firmware of the console?

    OMG I accessed to the Gateway Menu for the first time! :D
    But I'm still afraid to dump my game, I'm afraid if dumping fails and my 3DS got bricked!

    Congratz! And, in my opinion the 3ds doesn't get brick when the dumping failed. And, as I said before make sure you have enough space n your SD Card and you have connected your 3ds with the charger.

    No link, but open the exploit using the browser method. And then, dump your game. ;)

    Wait, semi-offtopic question: why do we even need a Gateway card if it's possible to launch the exploit without it?:blink:

    Yes, you can run the exploit, but you can't run the games without the Gateway 3ds card and you can't even boot the Gateway mode without it.

    Put the Launcher.dat of the 3.0.4 GW Firmware
    Configure your wifi network if you haven't do
    Then go to http://go.gateway-3ds.com

    Don't forget to desactivate the Wifi Trigger when you don't need it because it can download an update (not install) without your permission!
