For the newbies: Edit saves and inject them to your Switch

1 post in this topic

This is probably child's play to many but for the ones that don't know.


Many of the Nintendo Switch game saves are plain text. The ones that are a bit encoded and cannot be read easily with notepad++ can be hex edited.

Backup the saves with Checkpoint, grab the saves via FTP, you can connect from your phone using File Commander. Copy the game save to the phone, hex edit, copy back, and inject.

I demonstrated this on a YouTube clip. My phone has a screen recorder,  to switch to external I initiated the camera and my phone records the viewfinder. 

This also works well for save files downloaded. 

Have fun.
