    Your requests have been heard.

    I present:


    By swapping out the arm7 binary and changing the dump path, I made wooddumper r89 dump NDS games to the 3DS sd card.

    This is actually pretty neat. Now if only we could go the other way with it and load them back off of the SD card. Good job!

    I have no idea how wooddumper works because I never did any NDS hacking, but does it dump your save?

    No, but TWLSaveTool can. This dumps the actual game rom for an emulator for example.

    No, it dumps ROMs.

    Use TWL Save Tool for saves.

    I knew about the rom part, but not the save part. Thanks!

    The wifi version of WoodDumper seems able to. However that feature seems to not be in the slot2 build of WoodDumper. :(

    Very cool. Might have to try it out - I have a few games that I want to convert to roms for flashcart use.

    Dude, this is freaking amazing! I was frustrated about the fact that I couldn't dump my DS carts for research purpose before! Thanks a lot :)

    I've always backed me games up with a GBA cart.
    Time to retire those as well.
    Cheers!

    Is there any trick to get this to work? (9.2 old3ds)
    I've tried it with about 5 old DS games and keep getting "an error has occurred" blackscreen.

    Worked fine for me, although I haven't tried to play the dumped ROM yet. :)

    Na, just have a9lh sysnand. Don't know why that would stop it from working.
