So, you want to dump your DS game so you can hack it? Good! This article will show you how!

What you need:

  • A Nintendo DS and a game to dump. (Duh!)
  • A Flash cart or some other way to run homebrew on your DS (including WiFiMe)
  • One of the following:
    • A Slot 2 device (including Supercard, Max Media Player, and GBA Movie Player)
    • A wireless router your DS can connect to (slower)


If you are going the Slot-2 route, follow these instructions:

(These instructions are somewhat incomplete.)
  1. Download "NDS Backup Tool Slot 2".
  2. Download a DLDI patcher as well as the correct DLDI file for your Slot-2 card.
  3. Patch the tool with the DLDI patcher and the correct DLDI file.
  4. Run the program on your DS with the Slot-2 device inserted. If an error occurs, you likely patched the tool wrong.
  5. You can safely remove your Slot-1 card (if any) and insert the DS game you wish to dump.
  6. Follow the instructions in the program to dump your DS game. You can also dump your save data.


If you are going the wireless router route, follow these instructions:

(These instructions are very incomplete.)
0. If you haven't yet, configure the Wi-fi settings on your DS. With a DSi, you can do it in the Settings menu. With an original DS or DS Lite, you have to use any Wi-fi enabled DS game to edit the settings.
  1. Download "NDS Backup Tool Wi-Fi".
  2. Edit the INI file. (Will have to read up on this and fix this)
  3. Run the tool.
  4. You can safely remove your Slot-1 card (if any) and insert the DS game you wish to dump.
  5. Use an FTP client (such as FileZilla) to connect to your Nintendo DS.
  6. Follow the instructions in the program to dump your DS game. You can also dump your save data.
