    Power saves uses the dongle to read content from and apply content to the game, and if I remember correctly, also uses it as a sort of DRM, along with your license key and email, so likely no.

    save files are encrypted and signed by the 3DS's hardware; you aren't going to hex edit anything successfully unless you have svdt/save manager/savedatafiler.
