    Well, this got leaked in ReSwitched discord just a bit ago, so might as well share it. This is a cart to XCI dumper. It has some limitations such as:
    • Requires FW 4.X.X or higher to dump card2 games
    I did not make this but I have tested and verified that it works. Place the NRO file in your sdmc:/switch/ folder and run with Homebrew Menu. Have fun.

    NOTICE: Remember, these dumps contain your PRIVATE certificates for your specific cartridge. Sharing such a thing with others could lead to getting all of your consoles banned. Before you ask, scene releases do not have their certs, they were blanked out with 0xFF's. Other than the blanked out cert, the dumps made by this tool are exactly the same as scene dumps.

    PS: WAIN stands for "Without an Interesting Name".

    New & last version, 0.0.3. Support for FAT32 dumping as well as dumping without cert.

    Oh hello there, beautiful. Also...

    What do you mean by "cannot dump newest games with a logo partition"?

    Games used to store their icon and name data in a partition labeled "normal" on the game cart. However, newer games now have an empty "normal" partition and have a new logo partition that stores the icon data. This dumper does not handle those newer games. So if you try to dump a really new game, like the Happy Birthdays game, the dumper will fail.

    Also, I see your like @garyopa! I expect to see your Max Console news post soon.

    Not soon. I am sleeping now. Besides this been around for a while not new just leaked.

    One question can someone check if this leaked version dumps the certificate area or just skips that section leaving it zeroed out.

    Is there a way to tell which games have it? If so, is there a list? Saying new games seems kinda vague and the fact that you didn't mention it in OP makes me feel like there isn't a definable way.

    Well, when you wake up you should pay your doctor a visit. Or your psychiatrist. There's probably something to be said about posting to GBAtemp in your sleep...

    Certs can only be used on game backups of the same game this time around, correct?

    You can install the exFAT driver manually without updating:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-install-the-exfat-driver-without-updating-2-x.505176/
    Alternatively you can wait for the source of this program and somebody adding FAT32 support.

    What games doesn't have a BBB release? A list would be great. Will This CRC 100% with a BBB release of the same cart?

    We still need:
    Sushi Striker
    Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition
    Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory
