    Hello, i was wondering on how release groups upload 3DS games. Not like where people find the link for the rom but how they upload the game itself. What hardware do they use? How does the method they use work? I'm just really curious to find out!

    I think the specific details are still a secret for now.

    Here's some general info on the topic, though.

    They must use some kind of secret, probably custom-built ripper.

    They upload the rips to Usenet newsgroups, which find their way to ROM sites across the net

    ftp probably or nntp
    needs no special hardware and works on any os worth that name
    since both are in use for over a quarter century documentatin should be plenty

    They get the mushroom from the magic forrest, then give it to the witch. She, in return, makes some magic powder. The magic powder is sprinkled on the cartridge and BOOM! ROM

    Sorry, unhelpful post. A bit bored, I am today...

    The world that never was
    I heard they even have tested some roms. If you check the nfos of the first few dumps you will see them say that.

    well the world goes round ,if in the end a flashcard or cfw is released i would be interested to see if the rips will work to each unique 3ds
    but i prefer a region lock tool and homebrews as piracy will kill some great titles

    They have a team of people who know how hardware and software works and who also know how to reverse engineer very well. If you don't know this, then I wouldn't worry about ripping roms from game cartridges. There really isn't any reason for most people to do so anyway as there isn't even a public way to play 3ds roms (which is the only thing most people care about)

    Step 1. Take a game cartridge (preferably a crappy game, ex. Spirit Camera). Step 2. Grip it with two hands, one on each side. Step 3. Pull both hands in opposite directions, gripping the cart the whole time. Result: A 'ripped' game cartridge! You just got trolled, rick rolled!

    Step 1. Put 3ds cartridge in toaster.
    Step 2. Turn toaster on.
    Step 3. Remove 3ds rom.

    You're welcome.
