    TWLSaveTool (v1.2)

    TWLSaveTool is a 3DS homebrew that allows you to read, write, and erase save files from NDS cartridges (just like savegame-manager!)

    The CIA build requires an access to CFWs. If it's the case, this is the best option; you'll be able to see the awesome banner @Apache Thunder made ;).

    The 3dsx build requires you to have either PokéTransporter or Pokémon Dream Radar installed on your 3DS. In both cases you'll need to pay to be able to download them.

    Compatibility list:
    All NDS games except WarioWare D.I.Y., Band Brothers DX, Art Academy DS, and Pokémon Typing Adventure should be supported.

    Special thanks to:

    Pretty nifty. I've got some retail NDS carts I'd love to move saves to/from. Thanks for this.

    Would it be possible to take over Pokemon Dream Radar to get the pxi:dev service? I already have that one. :)
    Wonder if there's any other games that access DS ...

    I don't know much about Dream Radar, but if you want to use it instead of PokéTransfer just use 3dsdb and edit TWLSaveTool.xml accordingly ;)

    I have just been told that the Dream Radar has the correct access flags. It should work.

    So this means I need to install it to my 9.2 sysNAND because my emuNAND is on 10.3?

    AFAIK, there is some unused code in uncart for that.

    oh really? I might have a look into that.

    by the way, you should change the repo description from "A tool to backup/restore save files of NDS cards on a 3DS CFW. Not working atm." ;)

    Looking forward to the day when someone figures out how to run NDS roms from the 3DS menu. Take care of all those pesky cartridges once and for all
