3ds Ram Dump

Post by chrrox » Tue Jun 24, 2014 2:35 pm

This is a guide for current 3ds ram dumping method.

First you need a 3ds with firmware <= 4.5

2nd you need a 3ds compatible ds flash cart or a friend with one to install
the initial gateway loader.

After you install the gateway loader you need to put
fcramdump
on your normal sdhc flash card.

Now you can only dump retail carts that are compatible with your region 3ds.
Load up your game and get to the point where you want to dump ram from.

Then go into the system menu and launch the ds profile exploit and it will dump the game ram to your sd card.

The dump should be around 130mb.

If anyone has ram dumps they want me to help with let me know.

This can be used to dump audio and model data.

Am very much hoping someone posts something from bravely default, would really like to see the models from that game (including the world map, nobody seems to have extracted world maps from any JRPGS).

Looking at the format now.

yeah you can't use it in gateway mode.
to test it just boot your 3ds from a complete power down and launch launcher.dat should just start dumping ram.
you should never go into gateway mode.
