    Hello, what Ranger game is this for? When I tried to download this and try to restore it, it failed to restore by saying that it failed to read the save file. What's going on?

    It's for the first Pokemon Ranger game on the DS.

    What did you use to restore the save? have you tried the 256k save above?

    Yes. I have the requirements for the backup saves. I'm using Checkpoint and It has been doing great for me. However, this file just failed to restore. I don't know what's going on.

    Try starting a new game on your game cartridge and backing up the save, what size is it?

    What do you mean by size? Well, I have a legit copy of Pokemon Ranger and the Manaphy Egg was already delivered when I got the game. I tried restoring the save file but when I go the the Manaphy Egg mission, it just takes me back to the title screen and I don't see the "Check the Egg" option. What can I do now?

    As in the file size of the save game, is it 256k, 512k?

    256k I think. I tried restoring this save file but the file is exactly the same as the previous save file. I don't clearly understand about all of this.

    Is the cart is defiantly genuine? only reason I ask is Ebay is flooded with reproductions of games these days.

    If you have a flash cart I can suggest using the save on that as the save should work fine on that.

    All of my DS games are 100% genuine. I do not collect counterfeits. It just won't let me backup that save. I really don't know anymore. I know that the egg can only be obtained once per cartridge. Though, I read about deleting everything on the cartridge to be like brand new to get another egg. How do I go about doing this? I already have Homebrew on the 3DS.

    Alright. It won't let me backup and restore the save. I have no other option but to clear out everything from that cartridge. How do I completely wipe out the cartridge, including the Ranger Net? If it isn't possible to clear everything, I'll have to be smart about buying a new Pokemon Ranger cartridge without Ranger Net unlocked.

    It's an option on TwlSaveTool you can erase the save, however if you can't backup the save I suspect your not going to have any luck after earing the save.

    Put your cart in and it should give the option to press X to erase the save file.

    Okay, I realized that I did not downloaded the right TWL. So, I downloaded the TWLSaveTool. The problem is that my 3DS won't let me install PokéRadar because of the error occurred message. How can I get around that? I really don't want to lose all of my homebrew content and waste $10 to get credits to purchase PokéRadar.
