    A friend of mine was wondering if someone could clarify how to read/write from and to NDS backup media so that the saves can be hacked.
    In truth its for GBA save hacking purposes because all that he has currently is a GBA trainer that takes up the slot.
    He wants to be able to dump to the WRAM and then write it to the unused part of the NDS save.

    I really don't understand what your trying to describe here. If you want to unlock something in the game just download a save file and if you need a cheat thee are ways to use them.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    If you want to dump your gba save to file onto your slot1, you will need the gba backup tool:

    You can also restore the save after you hack it, still requires a computer to edit. I haven't seen a homebrew hex editor.

    The backup tool doesn't support EEPROM save types, you can look up if the game your dumping uses EEPROM for the save type here:
