    my dad works for nintendo.
    IF you ask here all you gonna get is, dump them from your own 3ds ou ds (not sure if you can use the 3ds)

    Because bios files are proprietary of Nintendo, it's against the forum rules

    IF you have a ds flashcard it's easy, there is an homebrew for doing that, however I am not at home I can't search it for ya..
    IF you can't find it, pm me and later when I am at home I will try to find it...
    Same process can be done in a 3ds IIRC, but as I said, I am not sure if you can use the bios from the 3ds nds mode

    Like specified in the README, 3DS bios7 and bios9 will work, but not the firmware.

    The homebrew to use (on a real console and dldi-compatible flashcard), btw, is "DSBF Dump"
