    No.

    It's pretty much been answering/asking basic questions. Which is really sad, considering all the answers are either in this thread or threads around it.

    you dont have to...
    if you are able to put the save exploit on the game card, you are also able to back it up.

    so you can backup your original save. put the exploit on it and use it , and when you want to play your zelda game again, you restore your backup on the card

    i think you getting the info wrong. the 67 exploitable games are only exploitable when one specific exploit is lounched once.

    edit: something whent wrong with editing

    regardless of what game the save exploit is present on, the R4i Save dongle's sales will be insane

    I thought the save exploit did not need extra hardware? only the game. Where did you get we need a R4i Save dongle? :(

    According to the details in the thread, the unknown game needs to have the exploited save placed on to the card, the only way feasible way to do that without hardware mods is through a R4i save dongle

    You can also do it on a DS (Lite) without hardware mods (you'll need to either cut off a small section of the 3DS game card or else take the game board out of the card and put it into a regular DS game card, but neither is much of a big deal, and the second should be easily reversible).

    If the exploited game is cheap that could be a very good option, is the extra section on the 3DS card purely to block it from fitting in a DS?

    Yes. (Understandably so I guess; prevents people thinking a 3DS game will work in a DS and getting confused when it does not).

    My guess, it would be based on a game that we can "build" (like pushmo) the save.

    At least it won't be on a game with a 512B save eeprom―those don't exist on CTR cartridges, thankfully―because the R4i Save Dongle doesn't seem to be able to write to those properly. I guess those 500 people who got R4i Save Dongles for free are loving that it's going to get 10x more useful to them. I know I am. ;)

    There's a secret 3rd way. :P

    Use one of these as a pass-through adapter (3ds-->DS).

    Is that device what I think it is?
    It holds three game-cards in the back, connects to the system's card slot and switches to let the 3DS know which gamecard to read?
    That's a pretty cool concept. If only it didn't carry the risk of somehow switching a game-card whilst running it.

    Yeah, I can imagine people trying to play 3DS games in their DS's. The save dongles are quite expensive too so sawing of the edge of the card might be a viable option

    What world are you from? They're $9-$20 depending on where you get them.

    I decided to grab the Save Dongle so I can prepare a gamecard with the exploit, depending what gamecard that is.
    But I also wanted to get the Save Data off my copy of Black 2. My usual save-management homebrew which I run from Slot-2 on my DS Lite did not work.

    Ah, how much did the save dongle cost you?

    I got my one from nds-card.com for $18, about £11.35 I think for me in the UK.

    It hasn't arrived yet, it's been a week since I ordered it but that's normal.

    I'm from the UK too, I may consider purchasing one depending on the cost of the exploited game unless I already own it.
