    Hi everyone, I have a question about a method to extract save file from both Sun and Moon retail cartridges and a way to inject them back in.

    I remember doing the same thing back when I played Monster Hunter 4G with cell9's NTR CFW v3.2 but that project has been discontinued, and I am not sure if save extract/inject feature would work with Pokemon Sun and Moon. If it doesn't work, I'd like to know other CFW or 3dsx apps that will allow me to do so. I have installed arm 9 thingy to my O3DS, have Luma, and have Gateway.

    If you could link to a guide that would be great too.

    Use JKSM to extract or import saves. Hasn't failed me once.

    Thank you very much. I downloaded the .cia file and installed it in the Emunand. I ejected Gateway and inserted Pokemon Sun and tried to extract save file with Cartridge option but no luck. Am I doing it the wrong way? The error says "no DS support."

    Edit: Nevermind. I figured it out. I switched from using Emunand .cia file to using .3dsx file in Homebrew in CFW A9LH Luma and it worked.
