    Did that include shipping?

    Also are people 100% sure you will need a R4i Save Dongle?

    I rarely do online gaming, if at all. The last game I played online was Mario Kart Wii, yeah, it's been a while, especially after installing numerous emulators and region-free hacks on the Wii, I don't want Nintendo finding out. Same goes with the 3DS, whenever we get a public exploit, I'll be sure to disable the internet connection.

    You can go for free shipping, they estimate that takes 7-35 days.
    That's what I went for.

    An R4i Save Dongle is a really straight forward way of handling 3DS/DS cartridge saves, but if you have a DS Lite and a way to load homebrew .NDS files on it, then you can manage 3DS/DS cartridge gamesaves with that.
    To get the 3DS cart into the DS Lite though will require either the board out of the casing, or filing off the 3DS nib.
    Something like a Slot-1 or Slot-2 flashcart should work fine on a DS Lite.
    It cannot be a DSi or 3DS though, they took measures to prevent cart-swapping after loading the system, so you can't use cheat devices like before.

    I like you comment, but i want to see Jap titles translated. I will never forgive Atlus for not release a US version of Draglade 2.

    Can you use a classic fat DS to do it? or does it have to be a DS lite? so if you have a flash card such as DSTWO, then you can manage 3DS/DS cartridge gamesaves with that? (as a flash card can run .nds files) and can you put save's back on the 3ds game card? as I guess you will need to put the exploited save back on the 3ds card to run homebrew on the 3ds.

    DS Phat would work just the same.



    I had one, just note that it does NOT work with the DSTWO. Other flash cards, yes, but the DSTWO just white screens on both a DS Lite and 3DS.

    Looks like I better order a Save Dongle for this. Good thing I've been wanting one, anyway.

    Ummm... You can backup your save you know? I mean if you the tools to implant the save, you can backup the original one.


    You should probably wait, since the possibility of this exploit being used instead of a future one (which the possibility is there, and honestly doubt they will rely on this one entirely without searching) is quite possible. Unless you were going to backup saves in the first place.

    Yes but to keep using the hack woudnt the exploited save need to be on the card until another exploit comes along?

    Depends what the hacked save does. If it is going to be like when the wii's exploit first came out with no installed program like the home brew channel, then probably. If you do install something to run home brew via a storage medium (SD Card), and they probably will in my opinion, then no.

    Ah yeah makes sense, id assume its without the homebrew channel since the exploit is still in its early stages

    That's just dumb.

    Is there any real evidence that a hack will be made available in the near future or is this all just wishful thinking.

    sifjar, isnt it correct that once an original hack comes out, further easier exploits can be more easily found? like for the wii?

    Still a long wait before we see any homebrews but I can't wait to see the potential the 3ds has for homebrew apps and games :P
