    using the gateway web exploit, I mean. Then you could turn any cart into Cubic Ninja (Not that I need more than one) instead of whatever game it's supposed to have.

    Well, I have a copy of Lego Star Wars that I don't play, and if I put my Cubic Ninja on it instead, I'd have a spare in case I lost one. :D

    Well, I don't see a RESTORE GAME BACKUP option anyway, so I can't even try.

    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    No, the game is stored on read only memory, and can't be overwritten.

    I thought so too, but then I read about how some game carts, such as animal crossing, store the save data with the ROM data. Although those carts are far less common.

    Only the save area is writable I believe.
