I want to edit a skin for my flashcart, the sprite is in SD Gundam G Generation Cross Drive. I export the unit sprite file with CrystalTile2, then I try to open the file with Photoshop CS2, but I can't because the file is in BIN extension. What program can I use to open & edit unitsprite.BIN?

I open the .nds file, I click on "edit" but "export image" isn't clickable (it's grey). I open unitsprite.bin and the "export image" is grey too. Is there another way?

Try changing the file extension, its possible its just named different to throw you off. I'd try out PNG or JPG first. I know I've opened a few games that did this.

Do you have "Show Extensions for known file types" enabled under "Folder Options"? If so you just change the extension from .bin to .jpg or .png

I try to open unitsprite.jpg in photoshop, it says "Could not complete your request because a JPEG marker segment lenght is too short (the file may be truncated or incomplete)"
If I open the .png one, it says "Could not complete your request because file format-module cannot parse the file"

I got Tile Molester, but it's Nokia application, I can't open it. I asked in romhacking.net, someone suggest me to use tile editor (YY-CHR), scroll through the file untill I see the sprite, but all I see is colorfull box, not the gundam sprite.

It's not a Nokia application, it's a Java binary. Install Java on your computer and you're ready to go.
The colorful box you're probably referring to is the sprite you're looking for but you need to load the palette too in order to view it properly...
