    Hi GBAtemp. User @shutterbug2000 has found a way to merge two badge datas to essentially give yourself the badges of another player that has made their files publicly available. In this tutorial, we'll be using @Februarysn0w's badges (he/she has collected over 900 badges).

    Februarysn0w's badge data: https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=b6305612e3c95fbd&id=B6305612E3C95FBD!694&authkey=!ANwz34EVEYjGARc

    1. Open the target's BadgeMngFile.dat and yours in a hex editor of your choice. (HxD is preferred)

    2. Copy from 0x0 to 0xc (ctrl+g "C"; hex checked) from the target and then pastewrite the strings onto your file.

    3. CTRL+G to "3E8" and select everything starting from there to the end of the file and pastewrite it to yours once again. (Alternatively, you can copy from 0x1C to 0x20 from your file and then pastewrite the strings onto the target. Using this method, you can skip step 2 and 3. Then simply copy the target file to your 3DS)

    4. Save the edited BadgeMngFile.dat.

    5. Copy the modified BadgeMngFile.dat and the target's BadgeData.dat onto your SD card and import them.


    Please reply to this thread if this worked for you!

    EDIT: A lot of people don't know what to use. If you're a CFW user, use SaveDataFiler. If you're a *hax user, use ext_data dump tool or Sunshell by Rinnegatamante.

    It won't. It's a OneDrive link, it's been posted in two different threads already. No worries!
    EDIT: Link fixed

    That's awesome. I'm waiting for when I can actually get the badgedata on my 9.5 n3DS emuNAND (unless it's possible and I missed it) so I can take advantage of this.

    This sounds awesome, but what does "Copy from 0x0 to 0xc (ctrl+g "C"; hex checked) " mean? Sorry for being such a noob.

    I'm so hype right now. There was a bunch of folders but I just chose the badgedata one. I don't think it was the one will like all the badges. But this one I got has a lot. This is the besssst!

    0x0 is the start of the file. 0XC is the other end of what you have to copy. Once you use the ctrl+G function to find "C" (same thing as 0xc) just copy from the beginning until there and pastewrite over your .dat

    Isn't badgedata created when you enter the game? Since I'm on 9.5 and without a NNID I can't get badgedata right?

    Ooh, so that's what you're referring to. Yeah, sorry, your post was kind of unclear.

    If you have any entrypoint to *hax, then yes, yes you can

    @Februarysn0w - thanks for your data :-)
    just want to ask question, is this data with "over 900" badges, does this contain all the current official badges up to this date?
    what i mean is all of the single badges are unlocked?
    thanks...

    1-A badge is something you use to decorate your home menu

    2-This lets you use Februarysn0w's save data (which has lots of badges)

    I have access to themehax. I have another question: How do you get a hex editor?
