    EVERYTHING BELOW IS A WIP! I AM STILL WRITING IT AND CLEANING IT UP! ITS NOT GONNA BE VERY HELPFUL IN ITS CURRENT STAGE!
    Instaling OotHax! (homebrew!)
    > There will be a guide + download here soon!

    Ripping private headers!

    Private headers are useful for anyone who has Sky3DS(or clones). If you do not use private headers on online games you will receive a temporary ban. Once you rip a header from one of your legit games, you can inject it in all of your roms and enjoy ban free piracy! But, even if you don't own a Sky3DS you still might want to rip your own headers for use in the future.


    You will need:
    HxD
    Any game cart


    >Go to C:\Users\COMPUTER NAME\Powersaves3DS
    >Move all the .bin files to a separate folder, you can put them back later.
    >Open powersaves and backup your game save (name it somthing you will remember, I will call it HEADER)
    >Close powersaves
    >Open powersaves (keep the cart in), then minize it.
    >Open HxD, press Ctr+Shift+R and select powersaves.exe
    >Press f3, and shearch for what you called the save backup followed by ).bin ,For me it would be "HEADER).bin"
    >Now, look for 00 00 00 88, followed by 16 bytes( your private header) , witch will again be followed by FF FF FF FF FF
    >Copy the 16 bytes between 00 00 00 88 and the FF FF FF FF FF, and save them to a text file for later use.
    >You can now copy all of your backup.bin files back into the powersaves folder.

    The header will always be in view of the .bin file, and is different for everyone. Hope this helps some people

    I know this needs to have some pictures, but I will add those later!

    I learned how to rip headers from this tutorial.

    Common errors/troubleshooting!
    >Error:
    NO HARDWARE FOUND

    >Solution 1:
    No hardware found is an extreamlly common error. It is caused by the cheap mini usb wire included with the powersaves. 9 times out of 10 switching the mini usb cable can fix this error.

    >Solution 2:
    If you are one of the 10% who's issues are not fixed by swithing out the mini usb cable, this may be able to help you.
    >Right click the powersaves software on your desktop.
    >Click properties.
    >Click compatibility.
    >Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode".
    >Select Vista service pack 2, (This one has worked for some people, try others if the error still happens.
    > Check the "Run this program as administrator"
    >Click apply, and run the program!

    >Error:
    INSERT GAME CARTRIDGE (It can be flashing sometimes)

    >Solution 1:
    This problem is common if you have an error in the license key. For most people, if you click the options button in the powersaves program you will see that you have put the dashes in your product key. You must remove the dashes. If you do not understan what I mean, Your product key on the paper will be XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XX, but in the program you will have to make it XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, without the dashes.

    >Solution 2:
    If your 100% sure your license key is correct, try a few other games. If NO games work on your powersaves, please contact datel support. If only 1 game is having the issue you should try cleaning the contacts. Its really simple. Put rubbing alchohol on the end of a q-tip, and then scrub the contacts on your game. This should fix any connection issues you have.

    If any of your problems precist, please contact Datel customer service.

    As this is a WIP, if you see any errors or are unclear on anything please tell me. I will try to fix any issues as soon as possible.

    Pretty sure he's asking why it's white instead of black like every other spoiler on this site.

    No, there have been postings that the occasional game will work, but basically no.

    EDIT - OK so I've never actually tried it, but I just used Powersaves & Sky3DS with my Alpha Sapphire ROM loaded, and I was able to apply a 'shiny' cheat to modify box 1 slot 1 Pokémon. I can't speak to any other games or codes, but yes this did work.

    Good to know! I was pretty sure the general rule was 'no' but then surprised when it worked at all.
