    Damn man, you were faster than me, but I guess your post is clear enough that makes my post almost unnecessary :D .
    Or not, it looks like Dr Pikachu still does not get it :rofl2:

    Let me clear this thing for you.

    You do not boot a save, you boot a game, which in 3DS is one very specific memory, let's call this memory A
    The save memory is not the same memory as memory A.
    The memory A is called ROM, which means Read-Only Memory, basically saying it's not overwriteable,
    turning romhacking useless to the case.

    The game, which is located in memory A boots normally, as it's unchanged.
    At certain point, the game will try to load the save, wich is located in memory B.
    Since memory B is obviously overwriteable, there is the best place to put your exploit.
    The exploit is inside the save file, and starts running when the game that is in memory A access it, which is in memory B.

    Exploit will do it's purpose and them it's done, simple as that.

    It's not using an Action Replay :glare:
    Don't take this personally, but you should search a little before saying bullshit ;)

    yes, but not on the same damn chip, this is what you don't seem to realize. the game data is stored in ROM, which can't be modified, unless you dump the data elsewhere, while the save game is stored in the flash memory or eeprom of the cartridge. flash memory/eeprom can be rewritten as often as you'd like (how do you think the game is able to keep your progress?). this means you can easily insert a modified save file (by using this thing, for example: http://www.pokedit.com/tag/nds+adaptor+plus/) DIRECTLY on the cartridge. this does NOT change the game files stored in ROM, it DOES however change the save file stored in the flash memory/eeprom.

    your previous comment:
    is simply wrong, as explained above.

    Dr Pikachu, the save is in a different place, but so what?
    What does it interfere on using an exploit.

    Just think a little bit about that.

    There is no difference where the save is,
    the method is the same.

    Why do you keep fighting the obvious?

    Cartridge games have always booted from themselves. I still have yet to be given a source that says they can read from other areas as well.
