Backup/Restore GBA saves with SendSave and a Raspberry PI

Recommended Posts

Thanks to the work of a developer named akkera102 the old SendSave GBA multi-boot home brew now works with a modern device so no more dealing with obsolete parallel ports.

You just need to use a Xboo style cable but connect it the the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins.

Instructions for the what wires go to which pins and the software is available at https://github.com/akkera102/gba_01_multiboot

The instructions only show how to compile the multiboot executable for sending regular roms like games. Adjust it to compile SendSave.c for the executable required for SendSave to work.

I personally tested it with Leaf Green and it works great.
