    Just bought a Sky3d+ and got my games ripped and installed on it working good so far, however I have some games I would rather not have to start over as I've invested a few hours intro them.

    Is it possible to backup the saves from the retail cartridge and have it import them into my sky3d memory card?

    Get a cubic ninja rom. And install Ninjhax. It's a primary exploit, so you don't need HBL access to get it.

    You're obviously doing something wrong, you need the latest starter kit (this can be found on smea's website) just put every file that the starter kit contains on the sd card that came with your 3ds

    Wait so I need to put it on the flash card that is under the screws in the 3ds and not on my Micro SD card I bought for the sky3d??
