    Hi! I want to start using melonDS (due to the WiFi improvements) and I need the arm9.bin and arm7.bin files. I have a homebrewed 3DS, and a DS Lite (although I have not idea how to homebrew the DS Lite). What's the software I use to dump those .bins from my 3DS? Thanks!

    So I am just going to state that we can't provide links to these files. I know you didn't ask, but it's best to get that out of the way first.
    Do have a flashcart for your DS?

    No I don't, is there a homebrew app to dump the files from my 3DS? On his GitHub readme he said there was a way to do it though he didn't mention how...

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    A new DS emulator and it will be much better than DeSmuMe emulator.

    @Ledbylight you can dump from the help of the dumper linked above from the 3DS just know what you get as it even states in the notes for 0.3, "Note: the DS-mode firmware in the 3DS isn't bootable. It only contains the bare minimum required to run DS games. Be sure to enable direct game boot when using a firmware dump from a 3DS."

    @kane159 @Dracari Thanks! So how do I use this on my 3DS? Is there a homebrew app to launch NDS files/roms?
    EDIT: Oh wait do I need a flashcart?
    EDIT2: If I do I may as well use my DS Lite for dumping :P

    You can find these files by searching "NDS Bios Firmware" on your favourite search engine.

    Why dumping them from your console? I'm pretty sure it's %100 legal to dump BIOS from your own console.

    That's what I'm trying to figure out, I think you have to have a DS though.

    No can be dumped from a 3DS
    Yes but teh emu must be set to AutoBoot as what you get from a 3DS are minimalistic barebones to Run DS games (these lack the "Firmware"'s Home screen/pictochat

    for the time being yes, it does not work with nds-bootstrap
