    I THINK this is what you're looking for.

    You may or may-not need AT LEAST Userland Homebrew Access, for the possibility of JKSM. (Because of Nintendo's Anti-SaveGame Restore Patch)

    If ya got a userland homebrew entrypoint for your system, You can look at running the 3dsx version of JKSM's save manager, extract the save and use http://www.marcrobledo.com/acnl-editor/ to edit the town as you want. Just import the save afterwards with JKSM again to have the save working. Just dont load up ACNL while your doing this or the game will throw the anti-savegame at you and will need to hexedit the secure value.

    The Anti-Savegame Restore Patches can be bypassed by Importing & Exporting the Save Data from JKSM, as JKSM bypasses the patch.

    Hmmm. I find that even with JKSM, I will get the save game cannot be used if I load ACNL while making changes. I just tend to extract what I need, edit it, and import it without loading it or the game will start yelling at me.

    I don't know if it's the CIA-version of JKSM only (Because of Kernel-Access), but I'm pretty sure JKSM bypasses the patches, as you can see in one of my recent posts...

    Hmmmm. Thats odd. I do have ACNL on both my N3dsXL systems, both with full CFW, still the game likes to yell at me if I do that. I do use the cia of JK as its convenient for using multiple titles without reset.

    It may be that AC:NL's version of the patch is different? (Hey, you don't know what's up Nintendo's sleeves...)

    That's what you have to do. You never load the game while making changes. I think ACNL is the ony game that has that issue.
