    I have a few games I've got really far on (Such as LoZ:Phantom Hourglass) and would like to dump them to use on my DSTT, however, I've only seen the ftp/Wi-Fi way of dumping them. Is there a piece of hardware I could buy to do this via usb, or another interface?
    Also, I've heard there's a way of importing a ROM/Backup .sav file into a genuine cartridge... E.g If I completed LoZ:PH on my TT and wanted to put it back into the original game, how would I do that? Is there a Homebrew app for that?

    Any help is greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Well there is, I use it, it is called NDS_Backup_tool_3in1.nds, and I believe it is one of rudolphs tools (don't quote me on that though). Still you need a ezflash 3 in 1 for it to work (or wifi).

    at like i said in another thread, its rediculously hard to do because of the restrictions nintendo puts on its system. I spent 5 hours trying to get it to work with a buddy, and we are both tech savvy. we followed the instructions and there wasnt even a connection. biggest wast of time. this is easy. plug it in and your set to go.

    You mean with wifi? dunno 'bout that, I use the 3in1 mode and that's very easy.

    I have one of those and it does not dump the rom. It only backs up the save. And yes I was annoyed when I figured that out.

    The easiest way to dump ROMs is with a slot-2 device. I'd recommend buying an EZ-Flash IV, and using Rudolph's Slot-2 NDS Backup Tool. The interface is similar to the Wi-Fi tool, but it copies the ROM to your microSD instead (much faster, too).

    And yeah, the NDS Backup Adapter USB device only backs up the save data.

    ya except you can download the same game online and use the the .sav from the legit cart. So dumping the game doesnt matter, all that matters is the .sav

    No, it's still illegal.

    And @ the guy who said he spent more than 5 hours trying to connect, you do know it doesn't work on a DSi...right?

    It's really not, actually.

    Copyright laws allow you to have a backup of any media.

    Downloading a rom of a game is legal if you already have the physical game. So, dumping the .sav and downloading the rom, is completely legal.

    Exactly. And I OWN THE GAMES. ALSO, I asked MANY, MANY times whether or not it worked with DSi. NOBODY responded. So thanks for that.
