We do not support piracy. We will only help you if you have both the console and the games bought.

Not strictly required. You can use a friend’s 3DS too.

As far as the system files go, they do have to be from your own 3DS.

Please redump your ROM, with our Game Dumping Guides:

Dumping Game Cartridges
Dumping Installed Titles

#8

There is your problem.

#9

.torrent is not a 3DS rom. That is a link that allows a program to download files from a server or someone else’s computer. Stop trying to download the games, and dump them from the real copies of your games.

what do you mean by dump? @Kumoashi_Kaze ?

Read the first community rule before asking for support.

#12

Dump = Make a backup copy of a game from the original cartridge or disc.
In this case, you are going to use a modded Nintendo 3DS to make a backup copy of games that you have on a cartridge, or downloaded on the 3DS itself.
Just go to these pages to learn more.
