    I currently have access to a 3DS at 9.2. I am trying to dump my own copy of Pokemon Y to extract its header. Can someone provide me or link me instructions on how I would run the Gateway exploit without the actual flashcard so I could dump the ROM?

    If that's all you want to do, just put Gateway's launcher.dat on your 3DS' SD card, and then go to the Gateway exploit site (or one of the billion mirrors), then pick dump ROM or cartridge (I can't remember its exact name). You don't need a Gateway to use any of the features, except for Gateway mode, and Classic mode.

    Another thing you can do is downgrade to 4.x and use this

    Why should he downgrade and install the DS profile exploit just to dump one ROM? Sounds like a waste of time, and would be a big hassle when he finds out that his retail saves made on 9.x are now useless (if he has any), until he goes back to 9.x.
