    Just use jks save manager to backup up your entire save and do whatever you want.

    This is solely to export egg infomation from XY/ORAS. Vital for TSV/ESV Community :) easier access and quicker essentially.

    Not that easier , you have to break they key something if you didn't do it.
    Just extract the save and use wireless app to send the save file to PC.

    You can't convert a 3dsx file to CIA directly. If you can instead get your hands on the ELF file (which you can, since the app has source code on Github), you can convert that into a CIA file.

    I have compiled it, let me know if it works. It requires the "data" folder to be on the root of your sd card or under the 3ds folder, like the homebrew app.

    EDIT 1: Read what you said, going to go over it~


    When opening the app it said as follows:

    "Getting SD Card handle
    Opening SD Card archive
    Init FS Failed
    Failed to load file personal
    Press A to return to the homebrew menu"

    I looked at the code, it seems that it reads the files under "data" at "/3ds/BoxDumper/data". I put the files there and launched it and it doesn't load them. This seems like it would take more than just compiling it as a cia to work unfortunately.

    It relies on the homebrew menu and starting under a Pokemon game to get to its save data.
