    Hi, my first topic!

    Let's go for it, i want to dump a private header without powersave, i have a new 3ds xl and the only option i saw is go gateway, but i think that exploit is fixed in new 3ds xl, i can downgrade without problems because i have cubic ninja, because obviously i need to go 9.2 for dump a game, so what are my options? Is possible to have gateway without gateway card? I mean that menu to dump a game. And, when everything is ok, i can upgrade my new 3ds xl through sysnand, i mean, "normal" update?

    Short Question: Can i dump a private header w/o spend money? How?

    You can dump games with the Gateway launcher without a Gateway (using Cubic Ninja as entrypoint) or with uncart, a homebrew alternative.
    Once downgraded I would suggest you use emuNAND CFW and update that, leaving your sysNAND on 9.2, you have a lot more capabilities on 9.2 such as NTR-CFW cheats/plugins, Decrypt9, GodMode9 etc.

    for dumping games you would need to be on 9.2 so if I were you I would just setup emuNand and use CIA games

    Thanks, meh, i have a sky3ds+ because im afraid about installing cfw, so i will just update my sysNAND, and about Gateway launcher without a Gateway, there's any tutorial about how to do this? Thanks for your help, i appreciate.
    EDIT: Maybe when i know a little bit more about this scene, i will install a custom cfw and sell sky3ds+, but that's not in near future...

    If you are downgrading anyway you may as well install CFW as there is no risk to doing so. No need for a tutorial on using the Gateway launcher just place launcher.dat on your SD and go to http://go.gateway-3ds.com

    My mistake. No, go.gateway won't work on a n3DS. You can use the QR code included in the Gateway download to install the exploit to Cubic Ninja, and load it in the same way you would load Ninjhax. You'd still need to downgrade first, at which point you already have homebrew set up so it would probably be easier to use Uncart to dump the game. The Gateway launcher isn't needed for anything these days (unless you own a Gateway of course)

    Flashcarts are really becoming useless these days. The only use in them that I see is using them to downgrade 10.6+ consoles.

    The OP wanted private headers, so the bolded part I don't think is true...

    How do i get uncart to dump a private header? I dumped a cart i own yesterday and It didn't pull the header info. it was if i pulled a trimmed cart (it wasn't a neat 2^x filesize either)

    The reason why I removed my emunand was because I thought I could do everything I needed to with updated sysnand with homebrew (much like you and what many people say). I don't want to go through the hassle of of creating an emunand partition again (and lost 1-2gb of space) as well as copying the SD files back and forth just to dump a private header once and never use it again. Gateway only works on < FIRM 9.2 right?


    tldr, I don't think the above bolded is true, otherwise, How do i dump a private header without gateway / powersaves?

    From what I understood, i need to downgrade to 9.2 with cubic ninja, then use gateway launcher (without gateway card) and then select "Dump Game" or something like that in the Gateway Launcher, then, when is done, i will extract private header from the game in my pc and update my new 3ds xl through Sysnand (normal update)

    sounds about right. Although for me, I'm in no big rush to dump a header. I just wanted to do it to get it out of the way just in case. I would just wait until gateway releases their next version which is supposedly "around the corner" and supports 10.3 firm.

    Yes, if you have HBL set up you can use that, but then you could just use uncart...
    Anyway the QR code is there:
