Managing 3DS Saves: Using JKSM


Recommended Posts

  • 4 months later...

Hello,

When I first installed this .cia, I didn't have this guide to follow. After installing and deleting the .cia, I launch 'JKSM' (12/20/2018) and instead of following the "Reload Titles" option I just selected "Titles" to try and figure this out on my own at the time. I saw Pokémon Omega Ruby which is the game I am attempting to use with PkHex but instead of first selecting the game with 'A' I selected the option 'Dump Selected (Y)' and then eventually with patience found the Pokémon (Main) Save file by digging through the folder JKSM on my SD Card.

I just have a few questions if someone could help answer them.

1. Does this homebrew keep you safe from accidentally deleting the cartridge save data?

2. Is there a big difference between selecting the option 'Dump Selected (Y)' or selecting 'New' after selecting 'Save Data'? I am guessing the first option is for dumping the entire game and then second option is for dumping just the save?

3. What is Extra Data? Is this update and game data?

4. Can I just start over and delete the JKSM folder and follow the steps correctly this time?

Thank-you!

This homebrew manages data, ie allow you to import and export save data.

If you accidentally deleted save data from cartridge, but kept a backup, then you can safely restore it.
If you had no backup, and accidentally deleted the cartridge data, then you're screwed.

In order words, the existence of this homebrew doesn't keep you safe. You are in-charge of keeping you safe :3

AFAIK, this homebrew doesn't "dump the entire game". Probably just a different option that leads to the same result, ie the save being dumped.

No clue :/
I think most Pokémon games don't outright use this? Maybe it is related to battle videos? I don't recall if Battle Videos were stored here (I don't remember how I extracted Zeraora pk file from the video data, nor how I got the data).
There might be other games that use it that may have compatibility with this feature, I don't know.

Keep the JKSM folder safe on your computer, then delete it from your SD card.
The JKSM folder may contain saves that will be useful in the future.

Beyond that, sure, follow the steps in the future :)

Hello,

 

I am very new to all of this, I decided to get Homebrew on my 3DS, it's all working but I'm having trouble injecting a save file into my USUM games.

 

I've downloaded files from this website as I cannot get PkHeX working on my Mac - and it's not working. JKSM states "there was an error opening the file for writing" and then an 0x00000001 error following.

Do you know what could be causing this?

Trying to follow this, but my saves aren’t showing in JKSM. Any idea?

Probably a few menus back, JKSM probably has an option called Reload Titles or Refresh Titles, or something to that effect. Hit that first.
It's probably mentioned in the tutorial on our site as well.
