    Was wondering if I can backup save data on cfw so I can delete some games without worrying losing my progress.

    I can't link you to it but try googling it. I downloaded from a site that's expert on kicking ass *wink* and patch it wih the .csu to .cia patcher.

    Can I use CFW to backup my original PKM X cart save file with this?

    dump the pokemon rom with gateway's launcher.....then you can extract the save.......cant do anything with it atm lol, but then if you start pokemon in MT classic mode, you can then use SDF to extract the save and use pkhex or whatever to mod your save.....but yeah, you wont be able to restore the one made on a 6.x console unless something changes in the future.....hmmm actually idk if the cfw reads retail cards with sdf.....it should do right?

    no it doesnt what im saying is....sdf in the buggy cfw....extract new save made with MT classic mode....edit save, re-inject with sdf in cfw, then play retail card in MT classic mode.......PS i have no idea if it would work, but i "think" it should, assuming the cfw uses the same method of saving as classic mode and that it can read retail carts

    Hmm, got it. The thing is i wanted to extract my save that i started in sysNand to continue it in gateway :(
    Looks like the only way is using powersave tho

    not even powersaves will help....im pretty sure there was a way to decrypt your save....not sure if the whole thing is decrypted....but read up here

    you could probably at least try rebuilding most of your save back up into a new save
