User guide

General use

How to open existing data:

  • Click on the "File", and then the "Open data" options in the menu toolbar.
  • Select a directory (folder) that contains "BadgeData.dat" file and the "BadgeMngFile.dat".

How to create new data:

  • Click on the "File", and then the "New data" options in the menu toolbar.
  • Make whatever you want, and set the NNID number to yours if you want it to work (read down below to know how to do that).

How to save data:

  • Click on the "File", and then the "Save data"/"Save data to..." options in the menu toolbar.
  • If you opened data, this will overwrite the old data.
  • If you created new data, then it will ask you to save it to a folder.

If you want to make a badge:

  • Click the "Create new badge" button, and on the badge info, type in any name and any quantity.
  • To add an image, make sure you import a 64x64px image by clicking the "Import image" button under the badge's preview.

If you want to make a set:

  • Similar to making a badge, but now you will need to press the "Create new set" button.
  • If it gives you an error saying that you don't have enough unique badges for a new set, then that means that last set only has one badge, and that badge is the last unique badge.
  • To fix this, you can either create a new badge or change the Starting Badge of the last set to its value minus 1.
  • To import an image, click on the "Import image" button under the set's preview. Make sure the size of the image you're importing is of 48x48px, not 64x64px.

Simple Badge Injector

This tool is used in the explanations bellow.

  • For Homebrew Launcher users - Extract the zip and copy it inside the "3ds" file on your 3DS's SD card.
  • For CFW users - Launch FBI, go to TitleDB and find "Simple Badge Injector". Install that.

How to get your NNID number

For Homebrew Launcher users:

  • Load Homebrew Launcher with the exploit of your choice.
  • Launch the "Simple Badge Injector" application.
  • If it fails to read the NNID, then make sure that you are using the latest *hax exploit version, and that you have internet.
  • The NNID should appear on the top screen.

  • Select the "Simple Badge Injector" app and launch it.
  • Next, select the "Create ExtData archive 0x14D1" option, and wait.
  • NOTE: This might not work, I didn't test it with Homebrew Launcher

  • If you find any Exception, please take a screenshot of it by pressing "Alt + prt sc" on a desktop or "Alt + fn + insert" on a laptop, paste the screenshot into paint and save the image. You don't need to do it like that, but, it's a nice and simple way of doing it.
