# Pokewalker ROM dumper
Dump both Pokéwalker ROMs using your DS and HGSS/BW/B2W2 cartridge.
Dump both Pokéwalker ROMs using your DSi and HGSS/BW/B2W2 cartridge.
## Usage
Launch the NDS homebrew file using your favourite exploit/homebrew menu.
Launch the DSi homebrew file using your favourite exploit/homebrew menu.
Preferably, only launch it *after* inserting the IR-capable cart. If you insert
a non-IR-capable cart (eg. a flashcart) and launch it, it'll freeze.
Press `A` to do a test communication thing (it shows the trainer name stored on
the Walker), `X` to dump the EEPROM, and `Y` to dump the internal flash ROM.
ROMs are dumped to the SD card, so you need a DSi or 3DS/2DS, sorry.
## Compatiblity
Tested with HGSS, BW and B2W2, seems to work with all of these. Unknown whether
it works with other cartridges with an IR transceiver.
Only tested on a DSi running in DSi mode. Unknown whether it works on a normal
DS (or on a DSi in DS mode), it should, but cartridge initialization differs
a bit so who knows. Will probably work on a 3DS/2DS in DSi backwards-compat
mode as well, but no guarantees.
Only tested on a DSi running in DSi mode. Will probably work on a 3DS/2DS in
DSi backwards-compat mode as well, but no guarantees. Doesn't work on a regular
DS due to the beforementioned SD card problem.
You *could* port it to a regular DS by fixing the cart booting logic (it's
currently untested), and adding extra logic to keep the dumps in RAM while an
IR cart is inserted, and only write them out when that cart is swapped out to
a flashcart.
