    It allows people to dump a game from a retail cartridge with a 9.3 or above firmware. (Only userland access is needed)

    You copy the game from the cartridge and you probably get a .3ds file.

    Yea, you get a backup when you dump a game. That's it.

    You're getting too excited.

    You can use decrypted backed-up games for Citra. Maybe romhacks. (which might run, without sound and stability, on Citra, not your 3ds)
    It's not in any way a legit piracy opportunity.

    A backup is the actual file the dump is the process of making the backup from a cartridge.
