    So, I was using a save data manager in the Homebrew launcher on a New 3DS XL, I was going to back up my save file, but I accidentally hit "B" instead of "A", and it restored an OLDER save file instead of backing up the newer one. Now, I get an error saying the save file can't be used when I load my game. I know I could erase the save file, but is there another method where I could access the save file using a code of some sort?

    Do you not have a backup of the newest one before doing so? If so, this happened to me and you're kinda screwed..

    For SaveDataFiler, there should be a button combination called "Delete Secure Value" on the top screen when you have the game highlighted in the SD tab. If yours doesn't have that you will need to reinstall the CIA.

    Unless you only have Homebrew access, which in that case you should use JK Save Manager (which is the save manager you should have been using in the first place :P) JKSM removes secure value automatically but you will need to put your savedata (for Pokemon, it's a file called main) in SD:\JKSM\saves\Pokémon_Alpha_Sapphire\ I think(?)
