    Hello guys, my problem is, I sold my old 3DS that had CFW. Before selling it I backed up all files that were on that sd and saved them on my computer instead of extracting the save files:glare: Is there any way at this point to somehow extract the save files to import them to my new 3DS with CFW? Because I know there's a way from 3DS to 3DS with jksv. But I would like to know if there is any way to extract it using a computer as the first step. Any info is appreciated.

    Because the files are encrypted, using a unique key that only the original 3ds knows

    I thought so, thanks. So otherwise it would work + it would be safe to do it(without fearing of getting banned)?
