This tutorial will show you how to manage DS saves on a 3DS, using the new TWLSaveTool. This does not support 3DS Games.

Can you run unsigned CIAs?
No: Go to Part 1A.
Yes: Go to Part 1B.
(if unsure, you probably can't)


Part 1A: Installing the 3DSX
Do you have access to The Homebrew Launcher?
No: Unfortunately, you are out of luck.
Yes: Continue.

Do you have PokéTransporter or Pokémon Dream Radar installed to your 3DS?
No: Unfortunately, you are out of luck.
Yes: Continue.

Step 1: Download this zip, and extract it to the root of your SD Card.

Step 2: Launch The Homebrew Launcher, and select TWLSaveTool.

Continue to Part 2.


Part 1B: Installing the CIA
Is your SysNAND on 9.2 or lower?(EmuNAND doesn't matter)
No: Go to Part 1A.
Yes: Continue this part.

Step 1: Download the CIA, and move it to anywhere on to your SD Card.

Step 2: Install the .cia to your home menu using your favorite CIA (un)installer such as Dev Menu (I suggest going with this one, though it's kinda hard to find.), FBI, or Big Blue Menu.

Step 3: Admire the beautiful banner, and launch TWLSaveTool from the Home Menu.

Continue to Part 2.


Part 2: Extracting the save
Step 1: Now that you're in the application, press L to backup your save file.

Take note of the file name used.

Step 2: Turn off your 3DS and put the SD Card in your computer

Step 3: On the root of your SD card, there's a folder named "TWLSaveTool". Inside it, there will be a file (more than one if you backed up multiple saves.), named the "file name used" we saw in Step 1.

Now, make your changes to the save, or download a save, or whatever.

Continue to Part 3.


Part 3: Importing the save
Step 1: Put your new .sav in the "TWLSaveTool" folder from part 2, and name it the "file name used" from that part.

Step 2: Run TWLSaveTool using the same way you did in Part 1A/B.

Step 3: Press R to import the save.

Compatibility
All DS games are supported except for:
- WarioWare D.I.Y
- Band Brothers DX
- Art Academy DS
- Pokémon Typing Adventure

Kinda FAQ
The Homebrew Launcher says "Missing target title"!

[image]

You need PokéTransporter or Pokémon Dream Radar installed to your 3DS.

I got error code e1213401!

You need PokéTransporter or Pokémon Dream Radar installed to your 3DS.

TWLSaveTool won't reconize my save!

Make sure that your new save is in the TWLSaveTool folder on the root of your SD card (NOT in /3ds/TWLSaveTool), and it has the exact name showed on screen.

Uh... I have PokeTransporter, and the latest versions of both versions. It won't work for Pokemon Platinum...

Remember that this is almost 3 years old. Stuff probably won't work like this anymore...
