    If you have to ask, you'll never be able to do it. Hell we don't even know if the dumps we do have are legit or dumped properly since we have no way to test.

    TL;DR We don't know, and there's no point.

    What if the secret to playing ROM backups was something super obvious that everyone overlooked?

    It requires a special hardware which power the cartridge, and scan all of the ROM (Read Only Memory chipset) content.
    They didn't release the plan to create this hardware to the public (they only gave it to other release teams).

    Here you can see few tools (to make the dumper) created and used by Legacy, the first team which released a 3DS ROM

    Honestly now if they built all this and went through all the work you'd think they would get a gamefly pass for 15USD a month and dump every game.

    You need this graphic card, you plug the cartridge in the top left pins.

    This got EoF'd eh?
    I take back my old answer.

    You can dump 3ds roms in just 6 simple steps
    • Draw a ritual circle
    • Place 3ds game and microsd card in ritual circle
    • Obtain a lamb or other animal for sacrifice
    • Purge the sacrifice of its blood
    • Poor the blood into the circle
    • Wait for the powers that be to transfer the 3ds rom to your microsd card
    Warning Your 3ds game will be destroyed in the process


    Restrictions apply results may vary. We do not take responsibility for any demons summoned using this rom dumping technique. Side effects include; getting sent to jail, getting put into an asylum, loss of hair, loss of friends, loss of life, nausea, diarrhea, heartburn, and irreversible death.
