Backing Up my Virtual Console save
« on: August 26, 2017, 06:25:25 pm »
Hi there!

I was wondering how I would be able to back up my Virtual Console save of Pokemon Blue (I am doing a glitch run of it and I really don't want my save wiped). I have New 3DS XL and my computer can read regular SD cards but not the microSD cards that the New 3DS's use. Could anyone help?

Thanks!  :D

I'm assuming your 3DS has CFW or homebrew, given that you need it for save backups.

Just use JKSM or another save manager homebrew like usual, and use some FTP homebrew to transfer the file from the SD card. Or you can use Nintendo's microSD management app from Settings, but their SMB implementation kinda sucks.

No my 3DS dose not have eather CFW or homebrew (Been to scared that if I tryed any thing it would mess up my 3DS and I REALLY don't want that). Also I am no tech genius (Even though I am studying) so is there any guide online that takes me through step by step because once again I really don't want to mess up my 3DS

Thanks!

No, because videos can get outdated. On the guide site there's a link to a discord server where you can ask for help though.

So this guide only works for version 9.0.0 through 11.3.0 and my 3DS is on 11.5.0. (I also don't have 2 3DS's) What do I do?

It maybe working, if Nintendo doesn´t  fixed it already

I can't do it. I am too scared that I am going to do something wrong and screw up my 3DS. What do I do? I have the homebrew starter kit downloaded and my 3DS's microSD card in the card reader and pulled up but where do I put the starter kit?

Extract the starter kit to the root of your SD card.

They fixed it Unfortunately, so that uploades of these files got deleted in a few seconds.  :-\

I don´t know any other ways of backing up 3DS saves

Maybe, you make a glitched run on an emulator and make Savestates, so if something went wrong, load the quicksave.
