^ Your ROM is corrupted. You’ll need to redump your game. Please refer to our game dumping guides:

Dumping Game Cartridges
Dumping Installed Titles

Make sure your GM9 is up to date and that you have enough free storage space available on your SD-Card to perform the dump.

The log file is incomplete. Please follow these steps carefully:

  1. Restart the Citra app if it’s already running.
  2. Launch your game and/or encounter the problem.
  3. Shut down the Citra app (do not restart Citra as that will wipe the log file of important information!).
  4. Navigate to Internal Storage/citra-emu/log and upload the citra_log.txt file in this chat.

is there a possible method in case i dont have a 3ds? Message removed by moderator.

because im trying to get either pokemon x/y or alpha/omega and ive already spent 4 days on this and am running out of ideas

Oops let me clarify, i dont have a HACKED 3ds (have a normal 3ds)and dont know how to, after reading back at my reply i see i really couldve worded that better

It’s relatively easy to hack your 3DS yourself. This guide walks you through the entire thing step by step:
After you’re done with following that, you can dump your games using these guides:

Dumping Game Cartridges
Dumping Installed Titles
Dumping Updates and DLC

After that, you should be good to go.

tysm for the 3ds guide​:grin::grin:
