    I was having the CTR Broken problem and was able to get it working by using 0004000002C2330 for the save file name. Just a heads up for anyone else having an issue and wants to see if it works for them as well.

    Hi I need your help. I played in past with a gateway 3ds and a Pokemon sun ROM so I saved my game. Now I switched from gateway to luma3ds and I downloaded a cia version of Pokemon sun and I installed it. I tried to launch it for the first time to create a savegame and then I closed it. Later I tried to copy the pokemonsun.sav inside the SD card (one of the JK folder, I don't remember which one) I installed jk's save manager to import the .sav into the Pokemon cia but then I launch the game it tell me the save is corrupted. Is there a way to restore the gateway save file inside the pokemon CIA?

    Same as Maximoff " Hi everyone. Finally a way to make my Gateway save work on A9LH CFW. But I have a huge problem, I don't have a Gateway catridge anymore. I'd like to know if someone could convert my save file. I can send it to email. Its a Bravely Default with 40+ hrs..."

    I have a many hours (not sure how much exactly) save of Bravely default and I don't own a gateway anymore, I still have the encrypted .sav file though, could someone be kind and convert it for me please?

    Attached JKSM exported save, copy the 'DRAGON_QUEST_VII' into 'SD:\JKSV\Saves\' and import the "018EF" save game.

    Hey guys,

    I have similar problem - I did luma hack and found out some time later that my old saves will no longer work. I still have a Gateway card ( red, can't find the other one ) and sd cards backup so I restored my 3ds to the previous state ( sysNAND restore using hourglass9 ) but seems Gateway is not working anymore. Any ideas how to make it work again? :/

    Problem solved - for anyone interested - https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-luma3ds-with-gateway-on-v2-a9lh.431691/

    Gambia, The
    Hey,

    I used a DSTWO Plus flashcard with GW plugin and 4.20 Firmware. Now I switched to CFW and of course didn't convert my save files. So now I am on the newest firmware version and am afraid to start the GW plugin with my DSTWO Plus, as I am afraid of a brick. What could I do in order to convert my files safely? It's actually just two games:
    Fire Emblem: Awakening and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. If someone dares to convert it for me, it would be awesome as well.

    Hey guys I'm on Luma + A9LH on firmware 11.x GW is not supported yet, so I can export my saves... I do have the .sav files, I would really appreciate if someone could do the JKSM converting for the following Phoenix Wright : Dual destinies' save.
    Thanks for your help.

    You have to use JKSM, it's a bit of a complicated process but follow https://gbatemp.net/threads/importing-gateway-saves-to-cia-games.425743/ but replace where it says "go into Gateway mode and select the game so it shows in the cartridge slot" just to "put it your Sky3DS and select the game so it shows in the cartridge slot".

    OK, tried and looked over and over with out any luck....still confused so maybe someone cold help. I have 2 issues here. I have tried exporting and importing and no matter what nothing is working for me.

    I have Physical carts, when I plug them in, I get my save games working (3 games I am really interested in.... Mario Kart 7, Mario 3D land and New Super Mario 2)... When I play the CIA of the same game I installed, it's like it's a new game.

    Then I have a Sky3DS+....how do I use some of my "sav" games from there an import them in ?

    Edit: I think I figured it out... (how to get cart to CIA)

    Did you export the save game from the physical cart and import to the cia version? For the Sky3DS, follow this guide but when it says to select the game with the multi rom menu, click the button on the Sky3DS until the game shows, instead.

    Finally got tired of waiting on an update for 11.3 for Gateway so I updated to Luma3DS, man what a great decision. Problem is I have one save I really need from Mario and Luigi Dream Team. Any chance someone could convert this for me? Thank you very much...

    EDIT: I do not have the physical cart for this game.
