    Hi all, sorry if this isn't the right part of the discussions, move if necessary.

    I have a pokemon x cart but when trying to play it says "Game card cannot be used" - but i managed to dump the private header, would this somehow lead me a way to recovering the save data from it? Or making the cart useable again?

    Thanks~

    "Game card cannot be used" when does this error appear?

    i am guessing your 3ds is not hacked and you can't try and use savedatafiler to actually extract/dump your save?

    I'm pretty sure this is unrelated to the header. have you tried using this game through something at the homebrew launcher (or home menu, with custom firmware)?

    try JKSM, in both cases.

    It lets me create and extract ExtData for it oddly, not save though.

    try updating JKSM, then try again: https://github.com/J-D-K/JKSM/raw/cleanup/JKSM.cia

    I'm not sure what this error means...

    can you try this game in a stock system that matches the game region?
    Code:
    Module:
      FS (17)
    Description:
      394
    Summary:
      Wrong argument (8)
    Level: 
      Permanent (27)

    @proflayton123 can you use the latest luma version, enable "ErrDisp" for "Dev. features", and try to run the game with region-free launcher or HANS again? take a picture of the top screen then.

    I don't have any stock systems of my own so that's no help, the last time I used this when it was working was with powersaves which I no longer own, I changed the language from English to Japanese, still have the global link account for it. It claims to be in Japanese but I'm not sure if that's the region too, strangely enough. Originally it was EUR
