    I'm just wondering is there a way to make my pokemon y retail cartridge show up on gateway mode so I can use savedatafiler and inject an edited save onto it?

    i figured to do that as well, but i really would like to just edit my mons/the save directly instead of using bank all the time

    its a bit boring do that every time you want edit pkms
    but its the only way really "easy" to do, and you can pass many edited pkms you want

    other way is trading mons between emunand game and retail game, but this require 2 3ds =\

    I'm going to complete the installation of that leaked modified NAND image (I hate calling it CFW!!!) tonight for the exact same reason. I couldn't finish it thenother week coz I don't have a WIFI network to use

    I haven't received my Gateway yet to test but your comment seems like that is going to affect my plans. I know that my legit eshop purchases with new save encryption will still work on Gateway in classic mode after I get it but I planned on never going into the eshop again and just doing game updates by cia. Does your comment mean that I can't and I have to risk future game update coming out at a time when Gateway hasn't updated emunand so I can't go online in my games.

    I don't like calling that so called "Custom Firmware," CFW.....

    It's a modified NAND image running from removable storage. Nothing more.

    Then i guess that thread is out of date then... so just to confirm:

    You can use pokebank + rom in emunand

    You can also use pokebank + retail cartridge in classic mode

    is this right?

    Yes =)
    BUT only with pokebank dowloaded from eshop
    Since .cia doesnt work in classic mode

    Simples steps:

    Load up pokemon x/y/or/as on emunand
    use savedatafiler to export the save
    use pkhex to edit much pkm you want
    import save to your rom
    open pokebank, store all the pkm you want
    turn off and on the 3ds
    Load up gw in classic mode
    put your retail game
    open pokebank and pass down the pkms

    You can dump the ROM (no need to dump the save as it's part of the ROM), change it to .3dz and then use SaveDataFiler on it.

    Does emunand etc affect the pokebank trial in any way?
