Has anyone used the R4i save dongle here, and how good is it to transfer saves from cartridge to PkHex to cartridge?

Recommended Posts

Title. Want to know before I buy one. 

 

I'm looking for something that would allow me to transfer saves from the cartridge to the computer, edit it with PkHex, and then transfer the edited save back to the cartridge. Heard the R4i save dongle works, so I figured I'd ask around. 

 

I know it's only for DPPt/BW/B2W2.

Do you have access to a homebrew? (NDS Flashcart or 3DS CFW)

NDS there is a homebrew app that runs via a flashcart to backup save data to its sd card (can even be used to backup GBA Saves on a DS lite/phat)

3DS use Checkpoint

Both are free.

 

(Just my two cents)

GBA carts specifically require Rudolph's GBA Backup tool. It is kind of painful to use and not 100% fool proof, sometimes it fails.
Delta Blast Burn is right, for NDS carts, you can just use CFW/Checkpoint.

I used the R4i dongle, and I’ll say this:

I prefer NDS/3DS homebrew dumping methods. 

 

edit: It stops working if you don't have the correct driver, or if your computer system doesn't support it.
homebrew on NDS/3DS is a lot simpler.

TWLSaveTool on a homebrew enabled 3DS is the way to go for backing up and restoring DS saves.

For GBA games GBA Backup Tool used with a DS Flashcard on a DS / DS Lite is the most user friendly way I find.

No need to worry about drivers / operating systems with the above tools, all you need is the ability to read an SD / Micro SD card on your computer.
