    Yeah. Actually it's from freeShop, but I would guess they would be the same procedure.

    Or you could use @cearp 's FunkyCia2.1 to get them from tickets. This is how I get my games as CIA

    Those are usually encrypted.

    That is too much to ask unless you are willing to convert yourself. And you cannot get them as anything except .3ds, .cxi, .cci, or anything else relating to the system. Afaik, there is no way to convert actual games to .3dsx, .elf, etc

    Okay, well .3ds is fine then. I had no preference. How could I dump those, or can I for that matter?

    what do you mean yes? i asked, digital or physical games?

    if digital, just get the cia and decrypt it with decrypt9.
    why do you want to convert digital game format to physical game format?

    You can use CDNto3DS/PlaiCDN but I think it makes an encrypted file, Citra can't read those right? So you'll need to decrypt it afterwards using Decrypt9.

    \n?
    For testing on citra, use braindump.
    WHY EVERYONE FORGOT THIS

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Braindump runs on arm11 userland, so there's no need to get a kernal sploit to get it running, just a homebrew hax should be good.
    Also, the game will be dumped into a fully decrypted cxi image, so Citra will run it just fine.

    Well, you really shouldn't expect everyone to be at your beck and call. :P
    Are you sure you have the right release of braindump? If I recall correctly, there were two versions: the pre-release and the official release. I think only the second one dumps the game as a .cxi file.
