Ok it's just clipped, it's from another thread. The dude says "I was able to open the cartridge by using two thumbnails."

Ok noted, The Real JDbye, easy enough to insulate with electrical tape.

A bump, to ask if anyone has tried this. I have read, but not tried, it is possible to put a 3DS game chip into a DS game case. In this way, you can put OOT3DS into your NDS to hopefully use with DSaveManager. I don't have OOT3DS (or a Gateway for that matter..) so I can't try this procedure out. Anyone who can, a report on your progress would be appreciated.

bimp in the wund.
Otherwise what is the cheapest method to achieve this when you don't know anyone with a (jpn) 3DS + Gateway that can do it for you?

you only need to know someone with any original 3DS or 2DS on FW 9.2 or lower, region doesn't matter for save injecting, and they dont even need to own a gateway card....or anyone with a sky3ds that you could use one to boot up the gateway menu then inject the save into your retail cart

Thanks for your reply. I don't know anyone fitting the description so either I need to use DSaveManager, if someone can confirm it's working, or some kind of Save dongle device that I'd purchase online.
Wondering what the options are in the latter case.

You raised the question. So, what keeps you from answering it? :)

i think he wants someone else to butcher their game to be a Guinea pig first......personally i cant see it working, i would say just go to a second hand shop, take a SD card with the save and launcher file on, ask to try out a 3DS and just install it there and then.....or just be honest and ask them if they will let you install the save and chuck them a bit of spare money for them helping you out

well nowhere have you mentioned that you dont even have the game yet.....guess we should all be psychic, basically i doubt it will work, your best bet is to find some other means of getting the save installed I.E asking if a shop will let you install it on one of their systems (would have to be more of a independent store)

TL : DR i dont think anyone else really wants to hack their cart to pieces just to write the save to it so they can tell you that its safe

My having the copy yet or not is irrelevant. The point of this thread is to find out if it's doable with this method.
Of course I'd try if I had if I could and this thread wouldn't exist.

So your proposed solution is to go to a shop and hack a regular 3DS there to inject the save.
Ok bud, next time go troll another thread kthx.

In the meantime if someone tries, please report your findings.
Or in regards to the Save dongle method, which one to buy?

"troll" lol.......nope, just being honest that i doubt there will be many people willing to cut their game up just to install the save.....and yeah small independent shops who sell second hand stuff can sometimes help people out, done stuff similar before its not such a crazy notion that they would let you use a 3DS for what?....1 minute just to install the save, literately insert SD card, go to go.gateway-3ds.com pick restore save, done

guess it depends on where your from but if i was so desperate that i was willing to cut my game open i would just go ask nicely in a shop and offer them a bit of money as thanks for saving me the effort of ordering a save dongle thing online to use it one

just say something like you need to backup your save as you sold the game online and want to keep your save in case you buy it again....i doubt many would have an issue unless you think it would work in walmart or some other big corporate brand...no i doubt it....just a small independent pawn shop or whatever you call them in America
