What is a GM9 file?
A GM9 file is a script used by GodMode9, a file browser for the Nintendo 3DS gaming console. It stores instructions in plain text that are executed by GodMode9 to add, modify, or update 3DS content.
GodMode9 was publicly released in March 2016 as a file managing tool for 3DS users to modify content. The tool can perform various functions, including managing 3DS titles and installing .CIA and .3DS files.
When using GodMode9, you can load and execute GM9 scripts to complete various tasks. Examples of GM9 scripts include modifications to the home menu, backup and restore functions, and the conversion of 3DS files to CIA files.
To load a GM9 script in GodMode9, move the GM9 file to the SDMC\gm9\scripts, run GodMode9 on your 3DS device, press the home button, select scripts, and choose the script you want to run.
How to open a GM9 file
