Hey there, I know that an earlier post explains how to backup SpotPass data, but first I have a question.

For some reason I just received a SpotPass notification for Tri Force Heroes, announcing the 2.1.0 update. This notification first went out almost 6 years ago.

It doesn't add any content to the game, it just explains that a manual update is available. But the notification may contain images or something besides plain text. (I haven't checked it yet; I'm keeping the blue dot alive.)

Is this the kind of thing that you guys would like to archive? Or are you mainly interested in game content added through SpotPass?

I mean I dunno haha. I'd be interested in archiving it just for archival's sake.

Well, most of ppl would be interested in game data (aka dlc).
We can't get it anymore for many games, but I think all spd should be archived too

Well it turns out the SpotPass that I mentioned wasn't stored in the game's ext data. I'm guessing it's in SysNAND since it was just a notification anyway. Never mind then!
Well, I want backup them too...
But don't know if it's even possible to backup and restore them
There app on git exist, but it's crash for me

Interesting thing:
https://www.gamebrew.org/wiki/ACNL_Spotpass_File_Creator_3DS
You can create Spotpass Content for Post Office Presents and Campground RVs for ACNL
And send them to your 3ds!
If someone can understand how it's work, maybe we can send official SPD to other 3ds games

Ooooh neat! I will absolutely look into this.

Oh wow, I don't know if this creates the same sort of files we are dumping, but it appears to intercept the server requests and distribute custom SpotPass data! Very cool. I won't look into this much, because I'm not much of a coder... But it's certainly a good starting point for someone who does want to look into it, and maybe eventually there will be custom servers like Wiimmfi (but I'm just being hopeful, I know it's never as simple as just doing it haha).
