    Is there a place where I can get a persona q save file (the one in 3ds saves isn't working) or
    is there any way I can edit my save file by myself without a
    cybergadget and powersave? I just want max money on the game.
    Or if anyone that can help I can send my save file and can you guys put max money into it?
    thanks in advance :)

    Or do I have to wait for a exploit for gateway cheats

    That should be pretty easy to do. Testing with Persona 4 Protagonist PersonaQ EUR.

    Persona Q US TitleID is: 0004000000123400 (Was already on my Card, so i went with US Version)

    I took the Save (can store/load in .sav and eShop - press x to switch) from
    SD Card:\Nintendo 3DS\ID1\ID2\extdata\00000000\00001234 and decrypted
    it with SaveDataFiler (ExtData)

    Highlight 00001234 and press Y to export Save to SD Card\filer\ExtData\DATE-TIME\00001234

    I went back into game, changed Money Value, saved into same slot and exported it again.

    (1st Money: 1000yen, 2nd Money: 1020) > Now to PC / Hex Compate work.

    I loaded both Files into HxD (my prefered Hex Editor)

    Save 1/2: 000S_MAP/001E_MAP/001MAP unchanged so it has to be inside 001E_GAME

    1000yen > hex > 03E8 // 1020yen > hex 03FC, i compared Byte for Byte to find the Value

    Found them in Offset 84DB > 1st Save E803 (reversed) / 2nd Save FC03 (reversed)

    I dont know what the max money value is, so i decided to go on with 65000yen
    (FDE8 > E8FD - reversing) and saved the new value inside 1st Save on SD Card.

    Back in SaveDataFiler i restored the first Save by Highlighting the correct
    DATE-TIME\00001234 at SD by pressing A to import it.

    Now it's time to check if the game is protected or not by loading the Save.
    (Dont forget to switch to loading from SD Savegame!) > Data corrupted.

    The Savegames are protected, but it was easy to find :/

    Investigating Savegame protection - There has to be something like CRC
    inside the file.

    Will update if i can find anything.

    To round it up:

    Offets that gets changed everytime, even if you safe twice without change:

    Offset: 8 // C // 10-11 (Same Value as in 84CF - 84D0) // 50 // 6E4 (Looks like a counter) // 84CF - 84D0

    Sorry, without breaking the protection, it's not possible to Hex Edit.
