    I managed to do gateway save convert for all saves(for moving to B9S) but I happened forget one save which was my Bravely Default one.

    Anyone possibly can convert it for me?

    So after trying to go back to Gateway fw only to make Luma3ds become stock fw and then having to buy a r4i gold to reflash it. I figure I'll ask for some one to please convert these for me.

    Lesson learnt - When the forum posts says (in big red letters) "This will revert your 3ds to stock firmware do not use." It should be heeded.

    Saves are for 3 games (I believe they are USA if it matters):

    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Theatrhythm - Final Fantasy


    Thanks in advance.

    Could theoretically the process be inverted?
    Can I use JKSM to export the save from an installed CIA game and import it on the currently mounted Gateway rom to obtain the corresponding .sav? What about encryption?

    EDIT: I managed to try, and inverting the process works.

    ???
    Been having a few problems transferring 3 saves as I simply cannot find them on my sd card. However when I load the games using Gateway I can access their save data. Also I have quite a few .savs on my sd card where I cannot find any titleid for so I'm just not sure which is which.

    Ok so a little clarification is needed thanks, I currently have 3 saves I want to backup (that being said not important ones) and one from Pokemon Y and currently use Gateway, I have the 3 normal saves but wanted a little clarity on what to do, im unclear if I need to mount the game then boot the software to export the save or not, (even more so for Pokemon)

    Thank you for writing such a guide, it's just a shame that it's a bit lacking. Are we required to be on gateway emunand for this process? or can it also be done on luma cfw? What do you mean on part 2 step 6? Certainly doesn't work for me on luma. Gateway cartridge was not part of the requirements either. Some of us aren't as informed and skilled in this as others, so please don't throw it in there without any explanations. Another weird thing. You don't mention .sav in any of the titleid's you mention. Surely they should have .sav at the end?

    The part with the gateway and jk manager was where it fell apart for me. Doesn't work.
