    Just as the title explains, this guide will be for the end user, explaining how to dump files, games, or even system titles from your own system/data. This is important because you can archive files and games that otherwise will be ignored. This guide does not explain how to dump NTR Cartridges, and is exclusively for Nintendo 3DS content.

    Boot9Strap


    This guide assumes that you have already installed Boot9Strap (which will be referred to as B9S for the remainder of this guide). If you do not have B9S installed, then you have to choose between two options:
    1. Update to B9S using this guide.
    2. Figure out how to convert these steps to your current exploit.
    At the very least, you need to be able to launch ARM9 payloads on your Nintendo 3DS System. If you refuse to install B9S then you cannot blame me for any damage done to your system.

    Please make sure that you are using the latest release of B9S before continuing with this guide to ensure full compatibility. If you need to update or are not sure, follow the steps here.

    Custom Firmware


    This guide will be written assuming that you are on Luma3DS Custom Firmware (which will be referred to as CFW for the remainder of this guide). This CFW allows for easy chainloading of payloads, which is currently unavailable in other B9S compatible CFW. If other CFW get supported in the future, this guide will be updated to support those.

    If you do not have Luma3DS, follow the steps described by this guide to install Luma3DS.

    GodMode9


    According to GodMode9's GitHub page:
    GodMode9 is the only tool we will be using for this process of dumping/building content, so it is a requirement. Download the latest release from here and follow these steps:
    1. Extract the GodMode9 ZIP file you just downloaded to a safe place on your PC.
    2. Copy the GodeMode9.firm file to: SD:/luma/payloads/
    3. Copy the "gm9" folder to the root of the SD card.
    Once that is finished, you are now ready to move on to the next section!

    Finding a System Title TitleID High and Low


    Follow these steps to find your TitleID High and TitleID Low:
    1. If you haven't already, go here to find your system title's TitleID.
    2. Find a pen and paper or open a sticky note on your computer.
    3. Write down the characters found in the header of the tables on the titles page. For example, if I wanted to do a shared data archive, I would write down "0004009B" because it is in the header "0004009B - Shared Data Archives"
    4. Write down the characters found in the column for your region and the row for your system title. For example, the TitleID Low for the US font applet is "00014002" because it is in the JPN/USA/EUR font row and in the USA column.
    5. Continue to the next set of instructions.

    Alternate Verions
    I have decided to upload this guide in more than one place. This is because if it gets taken down for any reason, I want there to be backups available for reading pleasure. I also offer multiple versions of the guide because one might be more accessible, or be a preferred website.

    Donations
    This is completely optional, but it helps me out a lot. I spent a while trying to perfect this guide so that others can read this and understand as much as possible! I'd estimate around 20 hours went into designing this thread, with drafting, formatting, and revising combined. I want to continue making guides like this. It doesn't hurt me if you don't want to donate, because it is your money and I voluntarily gave my time. I am also paying for services, such as Pastebin PRO, MEGA, Google Drive, Dropbox, and more. Whether or not these services were utilized in this guide, it still helps me a lot if you are willing to donate some money. Any amount helps.

    Instead use R+A, "Search for titles", A to continue [follow guide]
    It's much easier than searching for the TitleID and so on.

    In addition that you need to hover over the directory you want to access.

    May I help you by sending you screenshots? For the guide?

    Personally, I believe screenshots would clutter up the guide. I originally planned on it, but in order to keep it consistent, I would have to screenshot every part and some parts can't be screenshotted.

    Excellent guide. I'm about to set up a new 3ds, can I dump the save files along with the SD installed titles?

    Say I have Professor Layton on CIA installed on the SD card. When I dump it and build the CIA how do I also transfer the save files?

    All the save explorer tools I've tried error out for some reason or another!

    You can describe your situation?
    If you are setting up a new 3DS, does that mean you are putting CFW onto it? If that is the case, then you shouldn't need to dump your saves unless you are using DSiWarehax.

    So this is the exact situation I own a old 3DS XL (luma3ds + b9s) and now have a Japanese new 3DS LL.

    I have a few games on the old 3DS (installed from CIA, *not* using carts) I want to continue playing on the new 3DS.

    I'm going to do a CTRtransfer to switch the new 3DS region from Japan to Europe.

    I'm going to dump my installed games to CIA then move them to my new 3DS and install them. But how do I get the save files over?

    JKSV is a great option.

    That was the first save manager I tried didn't work. I'll try again so I can find the error message. It was something about finding another exploit or entry point or something.

    Luma Legacy for B9S 1.2.

    It seems Rosalins is causing the problems

    SaveDataFiler will work (at least, it works from home screen (I have it installed as a .cia).

    EDIT: JKSM has a .cia as well.

    and to be clear, Rosalina is not "causing" problems. The problem is that older software isn't being updated.

    Well I just told them to use the Legacy 7.1 because I had to provide a quick fix. I was busy at the time and was actively searching for the Legacy release but couldn't find it.

    Anyways, yes you are correct.

    Just wanted to let everyone know I finished up the GitHub version of this guide, and will now be moving on to my next one. I added more donation options for those that don't like PayPal, and also some more grammatical fixes have been implemented.

    Feel free to suggest anything or request something added as long as it follows this.
