    This just occurred to me. When you buy a VC (NES, SNES, GB/C, etc etc) game off eShop, this downloads a ROM and an emulator to your SD card. Is it possible to get the ROMs from the card?

    You can copy the entire folder which contains the VC to your PC but that's as far as you can go.

    There's (to my knowledge) no way to decrypt it yet.

    Files are encrypted, you cannot do a thing with them, currently.

    anything you purchase from the eshop is more then likely encrypted with something to prevent that

    Nope. If there was a way, you would most likely know about it.
