    Hey, so I‘m not a hacking expert and hope that someone can help me with trying to dump saves for Acnl. I did the r4 card hacking method which was completed successfully, but for some reason when I try to go into JKSM/Acnl Save Manager it says „Not found?“ and when you click „OK“ and get to the page with Export Save/Import S. etc, it says „Error opening save archive: C8804478“. I already checked everything on the root and played Acnl to create new saves, but nothing works. Does anyone have an idea what else I could try?? Thank you very much.

    Are you currently using cfw or just homebrew for JKSM? Do you also have a savefile on that current ACNL that you are using?

    Sorry, it‘s pretty early so idk right now what cfw is...? The video I used didn‘t mention something like that either, I think. A save file as in a garden.dat that I can see on the 3ds? No. I just downloaded the Acnl Save Manager from the Acnl editor page and put it into the root, like it said on the instruction page. And then the step with dumping saves came, it says nothing of creating a save file first?

    And something that could maybe play a role: when I got to the step with godmode9, it said that the date was wrong and it could be changed which I didn‘t. So it changed my date on the 3ds to 17.10.2030, which I had to change back. But it still says that the files on the root were created on that date on my SD card, which could maybe cause this all not to work...? Lol, you can see that I don‘t know shit about anything.

    Anyone, please? :-( I just tried it 10 ten times again but nothing...On the editor site it even says in the faq that some people get this target missing problem but you should just use JK save manager instead but it shows the same error there as well! :-( Isn‘t there something I could try?

    I dump saves frequently from carts to use in cias, but I use FBI to do it which requires a cfw (custom firmware). The one I use is Luma which I think is still by far the most popular and there are some very good guides for getting it setup. I don't know if there's any way to do it without cfw. I hope this helps somewhat, though I appreciate it probably isn't the simple solution you were hoping for.

    Try to get an application called Checkpoint. It works way better

    Thanks for the explanation. I don‘t know if it‘s custom firmware but I do have Luma and FBI...those were included in this video I followed to get homebrew:
    So should I just click on the Luma/fbi app to dump saves even though it says that I should use the JK/Acnl Save Manager? :-/ I‘m so confused...

    Does it work on 11.6? I don‘t want to fuck up my NDS, lol. I‘m lucky nothing happened yet.

    Does anyone else use JK manager regulary or just knows where I can look up some problem solving sites or something...this is so frustrating. I updated the JK manager to the latest version and it looks kinda different? I at least got to the „type a name for the savegame backup“ part this time but now it says that there was a problem with the writing? Wtf. I feel like the whole data is corrupt or something.

    You have CFW on your Console. install the Checkpoint .cia file and you can use that to export game saves

    Use Checkpoint. It is a better application and have a GUI.

    Ok, I‘m gonna use checkpoint now lol. I watched a video and it seems to be really simple. Not gonna be excited before it works, though.

    I use Checkpoint for Pokemon Game Saves, Exporting Battle videos and VC. It will work for you no issues. been using it for over a year after jksm/jksv became incompatible for my needs

    It worked!! You were right. Idk why jk manager even exists anymore if you have such a good working save manager. The worst is that I had the checkpoint app the whole time but didn‘t know about it! I‘m so stupid.
