Does anybody know what ways might be possible for writing save files to Game Boy Advance cartridges?

So say you memory edited a Pokémon in an Emerald ROM to have the stats for Pomeg data corruption instead of EV training, could you then apply the changes to a cartridge?

I think there is an obscure Game Boy Advance save backup tool in Japan called Save Data Bank, but I'm not aware of any others.

I suppose one could try disassembling the cartridge and physically replacing the save but not sure how that would work.

Or maybe you could use an elaborate cheating device-GameCube Game Boy Advance Link exploit to write a save.

Thanks.  :)

With a Nintendo DS that has the GBA slot and a DS flash cart, you can use GBA Backup Tool.

For what it's worth, since you asked about the GC-GBA link cable, you can do that with a modded Wii: https://github.com/FIX94/gba-link-cable-dumper


I need a new siggy, because this siggy is shitty... shittiggy... shiggy.... something.

I've never used a flash card before and I'm wondering what would be a good Nintendo DS flash card to install the GBA Backup Tool? I still have an original Nintendo DS and DS Lite.

Thanks.

Any of them should be fine, but if you're wondering about the most popular/trusted one it would either be Acekard 2.1 or DSTWO. (The DSTWO can do more, like run GBA/SNES ROMs, but has a less durable design, drains battery faster, and costs twice as much).
