    using a 2nd slot device like max media dock (a crappy outdated flashcart/mediadock i own) i can use a program called reinmoon and rip or upload savs from my official cards such as pokemon and also load savs on them i believe. i havent actually done it since i dont need to but im just thinking thats probly easier then the other soldering option so i thought id put it out there

    Yeah, you can. This is not exactly recent news, however. These days you don't even need a slot-2 cart, you can run a program from slot-1 to dump the saves.

    What's this about soldering?

    He's talking about dumping saves as it relates to Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver, specifically. These cartridges have a different internal architecture, and traditional methods of dumping the saved data don't work. This includes all current homebrew (including Reinmoon, and all of Rudolph's tools, whether slot-2, 3in1, or wi-fi).

    There are already multiple threads on this topic; let's keep the discussion limited to one of those, as this one offers no useful information.

    There's only one way to do it right now, and that's with the NDS Adapter Plus:

    http://www.consolesource.com/ecomm/catalog...lus-p-3018.html

    None of the current homebrew apps will do it, unless someone figures out exactly how the new cartridges are different and makes an update for some of them. There are people trying to do this (see here), but there's no saying how long it might take. Until someone manages this, there's absolutely nothing else to suggest to people trying to backup these saves. They can either buy the NDS Adapter Plus, or just do without the ability to back it up.

    Gambia, The
    Hell yeah, and posting something you haven´t tried yet just because you didn´t want to isn´t being a dick?
    You could have tried, you dind´t because you didn´t want to, instead you opened the probably thousandst thread about savedumping HGSS when you just as easily could have disproofed your theory and spared us all the time and effort to read and being dickish in here, including yourself.
    That said, next time just try yourself before posting.
