yknow, I’m just gonna try cleaning the contacts and if that fails, I’m gonna look into desoldering the save memory chip I identified and read its data from an arduino or something

Okay huh, I managed to pry the cartridge open fairly easily with my nails and uh

Isn't this board completely free of visible physical damage?? It really looks like only the case got dented, which makes me wonder why it even stopped working in the first place

here’s where the damage is, vs a pic of the insides of a cartridge with an IR sensor like this one I found on the internet

I’m wondering, and it would be a very difficult task to do anyway, if the chip that contains the flash storage is in the damage area, and if it’s not, if desoldering it and soldering it on a new cartridge could work

I’m trying over and over again, I figure if the game is still recognized, it must mean the circuits inside are still partly working. I’m pretty sure that if it still booted I could rip the save just fine too. I don’t know if it will happen but I’m desperately trying over and over. I hope I manage it :(

years ago, my dog bit my Pokémon White cartridge. The one I spent hours on, and catched my first ever shiny, met randomly in the wild, Yamask, having become a beautiful Cofagrigus.

At first, it still booted, but crashed when trying to save. After a while of trying to save over and over, it eventually didn’t boot at all anymore. Tried it recently and my 3DS and DS Lite and the cart wasn’t even recognized by them.

I found my long-lost DSi from back in the day again recently, and just popped that broken cart just to see. Turns out this DSi is the only one that still recognize it. Still a white screen when I try to boot it though

I hacked it, to try to extract the save file with a homebrew, but all I get is a file half the normal size, with only FF bytes. :ms_crying:
