    So I am trying to use gba backup tool 2.1 with Pokemon Fire Red.
    Extraction of the save and rom works perfectly but when I try to import the sav back into the cart it does not work, nothing happens at all and it is as if I never touched it in the first place!
    Any one know a fix? Or can help me out?

    and which flashcart you are using?
    if it was a ruby or emerald save, i could test it...

    are you trying to write the same file? or you edited?

    Using an R4i SDHC
    I am trying to use an edited one but I have also tried using a non edited one which I just played through on VBA and neither worked when restoring them

    is your pokemon cartridge legitimate? or is it a fake cartridge?
    is gba linking enabled on the r4 settings?

    try this gba backup tool, i patched it to block dldi auto-patching. i am not sure if this will help.. but give a try...

    to make sure its not from editing or using an emulator, try to save, backup. do something and save, then restore to see if the backup tool does soemthing,,,
