    Hi!

    I'll make a restore on my Switch with a LGP save edited, but I need to ask: someone has banned using this method?
    All yours games (SMO and Let's Go) and Switch is all ok? Nothing banned? I dont get how telemetry can get a save editor. Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee don't use a Save Backup Cloud.

    Hi bootmonster,

    Does the clean switch has to be one that's hackable as well? I have the rev2 switch as clean and my hacked switch is banned :(

    Obviously my hacked switch fit in with that requirement, I was asking about the clean switch.

    The clean switch needs to be vulnerable to fusee gelee.

    Thank you for your clarification. Seems like I'm off the boat. My clean switch is not vulnerable for any sort of mod.

    Well it’s pretty obvious if you read the guide that you need to run the exploit on both switches.

    There is a way to do it but you would need a third clean switch, perhaps a friends or relatives that is exploitable. They would also have to agree to you running the exploit on their switch.

    Essentially you would sign into you Nintendo account on their switch. Transfer the save from your switch to theirs using the official method.

    Then follow the guide to patch the save whilst on their switch.

    Then transfer the now patched save back to your switch using the official method.

    There may still be a small risk of a ban with this as Nintendo may be able to tell, though in theory this should work without issue.

    Hi, i am trying to inject my edited Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu but i am unable to do it.
    i have all my raw saves in a folder named save and i used this scrip to extract it:

    hactoolnet.exe -k prod.keys -t save save/0000000000000030 --outdir out/0000000000000030
    pause

    I get a folder in my out folder named 0000000000000030 and inside i have my save named savedata.bin.
    I then copied the raw save to a new folder names edited to keep the original untouched.
    I edited the save and then i try to use this to inject it:

    hactoolnet -t save edited/0000000000000030 --replacefile savedata.bin out/0000000000000030/savedata.bin

    But this is not working.
    I am doing it wrong? Thanks in advance.


    Nevermind i was using an older version of hactoonet.exe that i download with an old guide for extract the saves, just updated the program and it worked. Thanks.

    What’s happening that’s indicative of it not working? Does it have a corruption message when you try to start the game from the Switch home menu? Does it just have the original unedited save file when you start playing?

    Also, I think I see your inject script missing the prod.keys function call. That’s important for appropriate signing. Let me know if that’s what works out for you.

    Turns out it was my fault, i was using and older version of hactoonet and that was the problem. Should have know better to update everything before claiming it wasn't working.
    Thanks for your help.

    Quick question, if I'm trying to transfer saves over, do both Switches need to have the same Nintendo accounts logged in?
    Both of my switches have 2 different accounts because of the hysteria of bans following the account way back when.

    No the accounts don’t need to be the same. Since you are injecting into an already existing save it will be attached to whichever user that save was created with.

    If you’re asking if I specifically have been banned using this method, I have not yet.

    Hello, I have a question. I was following the guide til the testing biskey3 and it said "error reach the end of the file". What does it mean? I tried to mount it anw and it wasnt accessible so Im kinda stuck at that part.

    Edit: Nevermind, I got it. When hekate made the backup, it splitted the rawnand into parts and I was supposed to join them together before mounting. Im dumb.
