Since it seems that a lot of people are unsure of how to check the ESV/TSV of their eggs/pokemon, I've decided it's time that I give you all a little tutorial.

This tutorial has been simplified even more than the first one to allow for even less user error.

First of all, to add the files in this guide, you will need a way to access your SD card on your computer.

In most cases you should be able to find an SD card slot on the face of your computer tower near the USB ports.

On a laptop The SD card slot will usually be along one of the sides.

If you have a New3DS there is a built in wireless Data Manager in System Settings. Here's a link that will show you how to wirelessly connect to your computer. (Not working on Mac)
http://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14218/~/how-to-use-microsd-management-to-move-files-between-a-new-nintendo-3ds-xl-and-a

If you do not have a built in SD card slot or a New3DS, you're only other option would be to go out and by a USB SD card adapter. They are usually less than $10.

If you feel like this tutorial is helpful please request a sticky!

Please do not post until I say it's ok.

STEP 1 - Getting Started
Go here... https://mega.nz/#!GARkBYxQ!yXjYwz2v_xjduywXT7Qu_lnPiYq1C6SArtxhF7VD0Cs to download my SDCard.zip

Extract SDCard.zip to the root of your SD Card.

STEP 2 - Otherapp.bin
Go here. http://smealum.github.io/3ds/#otherapp and you should see "Otherapp/ropbin payloads".

There you use the drop down boxes to select your Firmware which you can find by opening System Settings on your 3DS. It'll be at the bottom right of your top screen.

Only select NEW if you're using a New3DS. The one with the C-stick just above and slightly left of the X button.
If you're using a 2DS or a 3DS without the C-stick, select OLD.

Then you click "Download otherapp" to download the payload.

When that's done, rename the payload you just downloaded as "otherapp.bin". You can probably leave out the .bin part if you have your computer set up to not show file extentions otherwise the ".bin" part will already be there.

Copy the newly named "otherapp.bin" file to the root of your SD card

STEP 3 - SoundHax
Go here... http://soundhax.com/

Select your region. USA, EUR, JPN, KOR

Select your 3DS Model. NEW 3DS|NEW 3DS XL or OLD 3DS|OLD 3DS XL|2DS

Now Click "DOWNLOAD M4A" it should save as a file called soundhax-usa-o3ds.m4a or something similar.

Copy this file to the root of your SD Card.

STEP 4 - Launching Homebrew
Power on your 3DS and look for the Nintendo 3DS Sound app. It looks like a musical note.

Select /SDCARD

Select <3 nedwill 2016

Your screen should flash and the payload should run.

If everything was done correctly you should now be in Homebrew. XD

STEP 5 - Using JK's Save Manager (JKSM)
Once you have access to The Homebrew Launcher scroll down until you fink JK's Save Manager and press A.

On the main screen of JKSM scroll down to Refresh Games and press A.
If you downloaded any games from the eShop this will let you see the when you select SD/CIA. If you haven't use eShop, don't worry about it.

When using a physical game card plugged into your 3DS select Cartridge.

That will bring up a menu saying Save Data Options, Extra Data Options, and Back.

Select Save Data Options.

Next you'll see a menu saying Export Save, Import Save, etc. (Import Save will let you select one of your back up saves to load into your game allowing you to have multiple saves for a single game! You can use this later.)

Use Export Save to make a back up of your game's save.

When you back up a save, it'll ask you to enter a name for the save. Just enter whatever you like.

At this point you can press B to make your way back to the main screen and Exit.

When leaving the Homebrew Launcher press Start and then A to return to your 3DS home menu.

STEP 6 - Using KeySAVe
When you're ready, go here... https://github.com/Cu3PO42/KeySAVe/releases

Download KeySAVe-1.4.0-win32-ia32.zip if you're using a Windows computer.

Download KeySAVe-1.4.0-linux-x64.zip if your using a Linux computer.

Download KeySAVe-1.4.0-darwin-x64.zip if your using a Mac computer.

Once you extract your download there will be a program called KeySAVe.exe. Launch it. This is what you will use to check TSV/ESVs.

Ok, do you have KeySAVe loaded up? Good.

Now so go ahead and plug your SD card into your computer.

On KeySAVe click OPEN FILE and find your SD card.

You should see a new folder called JKSV. Inside that is a folder called Saves that's where the backup you just made is. Look for a file called "main". You may need to click the drop down box above the Open and Cancel buttons and select Main File(*.*)

Once you find it click Open and Keysave will load your save and populate data for all the pokemon in your Boxes.

That's the Default display. It'll display your pokemon's data like so.

Box - Row,Column - Pokemon (Gender) - Nature - Ability - IVs - Hidden Power [ESV]

If you click the OPTIONS tab and then click Formatting Option there are other different outputs. You'll use TSV or TSV (Legacy) to check TSVs. You can also try the Pretty option for a really nice display. Select the Mark (recommended) option for the best display. XD

And that's it. You can now check the ESV of any eggs in your boxes and the TSV of any pokemon in your boxes as well.

If anyone runs into problems or need help, feel free to PM me and I will assist you as soon as I am able.

And for everyone's reassurance, nothing here can harm your 3DS or computer. All links and files are tested and up to date, working on Firmwares up to 11.3.

The only exception would be for people who are running CFW. For these people please PM me for support.

You may post now.

The problem is even when I try to open it through bank, it says that the cartridge isn't inserted, when it is on my home screen

No, I'm done messing with it. It's slow and I wasted 20 minutes trying to put the files on it. I'll try when I have more time. Do you think anything else could work?

Sorry, but nothing else that I can find as of yet. I'd be able to test things out for you personally, but I don't have any of my DS games anymore. I got rid of them when I got my DS Flashcard long ago and never needed to buy any games after that.
