    Hey guys. I used the time warp method to install arm9 with gateway and it didn't work. I upgraded my n3ds xl from sys fw 9.0 to 9.2 and now downgraded it back to 9.0 as the gateway method failed.
    Problem I'm having now is that all my .sav files no longer work. Basically I cannot load my last save point. I have to start my games from the beginning
    Any ideas?

    What firmware did you start on? If you were on 4.X, then some newer games might not work properly due to crypto. You might need to go back to 4.X and use something similar to this method to get raw saves, which can be re-imported on 9.X.

    Also, don't use Gateway fast boot. Use Plailect's guide, then this guide to get Gateway working with it.

    I started on 9.0.0 then had to update to 9.2 for the gateway arm9 hack but that didn't work so I downgraded back to 9.0.0 using my nand backup from gateway menu.
    All my .sav files now don't work
