    So, sorry if this has been posted, i tried searching.
    Anyway, my question is asking how i can dump my SS savegame to my computer. I've done it before with different games but I hear you can't do it with HG and SS.

    I've seen topics that said it's not possible without other items, but I have an ez flash 3 in 1.
    Could someone please point me in the right direction?

    It would make sense that it would be possible if you had a way of connecting your 3 in 1 to your computer. But I'm assuming that you don't. So no.

    It is indeed possible with Chase-San's SavHax. It requires some skill and a slot 2 expansion pack. Instructions are included. Note that the success rate of this program is very low and that each time it WILL create a save but it may not be a valid save. Best way to check is to load it into PokeSav HGSS and if the information loads normally then it is valid.

    I can connect via ftp with my ds and a piece of homebrew (which i just realized i lost)
    I was under the impression that the 3 in 1 would help, but I don't remember where I heard it.

    EDIT:
    thank you Hakoda, i'll try it right now. Thank you very much :]

    I would assume the root or some kinda of savhax folder.
