    Ok, according to the guy that actually did it (not me) he used Emunand and menuhax. He says that the emunand probably contains all the old saves but he's not sure that the data can be ripped and put into arm9 from the backup.

    Question: I'm going to upgrade to A9LH soon. I'd like to import my Gateway Savefiles into the cia files I will use once I have installed A9LH. However, following Plailect's guide, Part 3 Section 4 tells me to do the system upgrade, which now would take me to firmware 11.1.0-34. The thing is that this firmware does not support Gateway, so I cannot execute step 6 of the guide in this thread (under II. Exporting & Importing the saves with JK Save Manager). Seems I cannot import saves before doing the system update, since I have no cia manager yet (such as FBI) - and the thing is, in Plailect's guide, installing such a cia manager comes after doing the system update, which would be too late since pressing select to bring up the Gateway Rom Selection Menu wouldn't work anymore. Does anybody have any idea how to bypass this, or should I just accept the fact that I can't import my saves (which wouldn't even be such a big problem, but still...)

    Looks like I'm late to the party.

    Can I perform the import process on a different 3DS?

    Do I update my source EmuNAND's firmware (o3DS/Gateway/9.8) to match the target EmuNAND (n3DS/A9LH/10.6)?

    well, nice tut and all, matt!
    but i tried JSKM using the tut myself, and for me personally it didn't work, i followed all the steps in the guide,
    to export/import my GW saves from my 2DS (GW Emunand 10.7) => my OLD 3DS (Luma 3ds, Emunand 11.0),
    some saves won't open, some won't transfer over etc.

    but, by using SDF instead, to export the saves to filer on my 2ds and then copying them over to my 3ds using filer, and then importing them to the .cia games it works, my saves transfer seamlessly from one emunand to another and on different systems, both using SDF (OFC!).

    First, thanks for the guide. Secondly, I have a similar question to what gohan123 on last page but nobody gave them an answer.

    I'm currently using gateway on an old 3DS (4.4 sysnand) and contemplating moving to a9lh, but here's my problem. I have ACNL and pokemon X cartridges with saves with 6.0 encryption. I assume there is no way to "convert" the save and inject it back in the cartridge but would I even be able to use my save file by dumping my cartridges and applying this method and then injecting them in a cia, or are they gonna be lost forever because of the 6.0 encryption thing? Thanks in advance for any help :)

    Hey guys, my gateway cart broke and I installed a9lh + luma on my 3ds but by the looks of it, there is no way for me to transfer my 50 hour dragon quest VII (usa) save file to cia without a physical cart

    Is there anyone out there that could convert my .sav so i can import it to my CIA USA game? I would be eternally grateful!

    um, with using JKSM for me it didn't work, it gave me errors using the JKSM tool, but for using filer it worked.

    actually, importing the .sav file (JKSM format) import to Cia file,
    and then exporting it via save data filer the save works.

    i mean finding a .sav file in the 3ds save thread and downloading it.

    um, do you have the save file in .sav format? if so i could convert to to save filer format/JKSM?
    not sure if it'll work, but i can try at least.

    If I have some of my games in .3dz instead of .3ds, will the save file conversion for cia still work?

    Did anybody else have problems exporting Mario vs Donkey Kong Tipping Stars? I just get an error and nothing is exported. Every other game has worked flawlessly!

    UPDATE: Over 40 games success!

    Unable to dump these:
    Castlevania Mirror of Fate
    Fantasy Life
    Mario vs Donkey Kong Tipping Stars

    Hey, would you please do the transfer to my SSB .sav file please? I followed Plailect's Guide and now I cannot boot the GW cart anymore. It is the only save that I care to mantain from GW Emunand.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Hey, but haven't you installed the BigBlueMenu on .3ds format from the "Select Menu" in GWEmunand? You should search for it and that way you can install the BBM.cia and then install any .CIA you want.

    Hi friends,

    could you please tell me and if it's not too much explain to me how to transfer the gate way's save files into the difference legit 3ds please.

    I own 2 3ds, one for gateway running US region firmware and one legit JP with the most updated firmware.

    the problem is i want to transfer the save from the gateway to the legit one (not sure where is Puzzle and Dragon save stored, i believe it might store in the cartridge).

    but since this topic is for gateway to cia, one friendly guy brings me here and my brain explodes trying to understand this.

    so please, if it's not too much, please explain to me if you know how to do.

    Thank you so much dude!
