If the CPU is ARM does it have JTAG or SWD test access points.

We need a datasheet about the ARM11!

I thought the ARM11 has a JTAG support? How can we dump the NAND, through its pinout yes, but how can we do it exactly? I would like to do some tests on it to see how it works.--Lazymarek9614 23:36, 10 September 2011 (CEST)

The ARM11 IP (intellectual property) has JTAG support, however this port can probably be permanently disabled internally. So there is no way of knowing if this port even still works or exists in the first place.
For dumping NAND, you need to hook up the NAND pins to an FPGA or microcontroller. Then you need to follow the eMMC hardware protocol to read out the data in the various sectors. --Neimod 07:06, 11 September 2011 (CEST)

Are there any photos of the back of the 3DS's PCB? Anything available in a higher resolution (front or back)? Closeups of the SoC and surrounding components (front and back)? Any help greatly appreciated, thanks! --CHR15x94 00:35, 13 September 2011 (CEST)
