    is there a homebrew app that is like a gameshark or AR for GBA games, and can backup game saves, and put game saves back in?

    thanks!

    I don't there are popular ones. But companies like the R4 have a cheat option that patch the game save in their hardware. That's kind of like homebrew. I wish I knew more!

    (next time make a more specific title, none of that dot dot dot crap)

    crap, crap, crap. my fault. I'm not sure. Very sorry!!

    What would happen if you used a cheat in an emulator on the PC and then move the converted save to the GBA? Sorry again.

    Yeah, it works great. I messed up my Sonic Advance save on my original cartridge (because of the Xploder) and it wouldn't work normally anymore. This program saved me: I just downloaded a save and wrote it on the cartridge.

    how does the file work? i mean, it only has a file called "cart_save.gba" and i thought a m3 can not run .gba files, yet. all i need to do is convert a .xps game save from gamefaqs and upload it to pokemon emerald...any help is greatly appreciated...is there a helpful guide, perhaps?

    thanks!

    Slot-2 M3s can run it, the slot-1 M3 Simply can't. I've heard EEPINATOR can managed SRAM saves on GBA games (though not EEPROM or FLASH), but I have not investigated this very much.
