Hello, I manually transferred a hacked o3ds to an hacked n2ds because my o3ds touchscreen flex is broken and I needed to change the motherboard, I built the cias by gm9, contacted nintendo to connect my NNID to the n2ds, load my saves my checkpoint; The final step is copying the saves of the mii channel, streetpass and that type of thing, I tried using JKSM but when I tap save it loads the keyboard, and, as I said, my o3ds does not have touch screen. Methods?

Let's hope it works. Please post the results so we know if this is a valid way for the future.
It worked! But I found another way, its too simple but I took alot of research, I just needed to make a extdata backup with MrCheeze's Extdata dump tool to dump this title: "f0000008b" and recover it in my another console with the code:
RESTORE "CFL_DB.dat" "f0000008b:/CFL_DB.dat"
I'm happy now! thanks alot for the help!

MrCheeze's Extdata Dump Tool
The Github of the tool (for the config file)
And my touchscreen that started with all this pain.

Checkpoint backed up all titles for me without using touch with: Hold (Y) to select all, followed by (L) afterwards.
Also creating an empty folder inside SD:/3DS/Checkpoint/<title name>/bla resulted in the ability to back up that title to "bla" with the buttons.

Didn't try a restore on another machine, but Mii Maker save seems to be successfully backed up that way.

I deleted all my games and my saves because I had it in my n2ds and I only find the Mario & Luigi Dream team game that was in the NAND. I tried to create the folder and create the folder "bla". Next my 0 iq me thought that if I hold the buttons B, L and A at the same time it will work. But it didn't.

??? I don't understand. "I deleted all my games and my saves" → Why would you start deleting things?
"Mario & Luigi Dream team in the NAND" → 3DS Games don't install to NAND, they install to SD. Only DSiWare and preinstalled titles are on NAND
===========

I forgot something: Checkpoint doesn't show Mii Maker and the other preinstalled stuff by default. The settings file sd:/3ds/Checkpoint/config.json must be manually changed to support NAND titles. See README.md "nand_saves": true,

I installed ALL of my cias and saves that I had previosly, excepting for, of course, the mii maker and other nand saves.
"Mario & Luigi Dream team in the NAND"
It was the edition of my o3ds that came, I managed to get that cia by NNID, I contacted nintendo for that.

It worked! Well... Almost...
It results that I need the keyboard to do save the mii maker, and WHAT, WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER APPS THAT I DID THE BACKUP WITHOUT THE KEYBOARD??!?!?!

Oh, interesting! I thought JKSM was the only option there. Any idea why it is done that way? Is the support somehow inadequate? Can Streetpass Mii Plaza saves be transferred smoothly?

No idea why NAND titles are hidden by default. I've never tested restoring because of the lack of interest in Mii Maker, Face Raiders and all that stuff. Transferring save data to another console for eShop, System Settings and Friend List doesn't sound like a very good idea to me (could be wrong, just a feeling).

Yeah but, JKSM needs keyboard
Are you capable of connecting your console to a PC, cause, the method for using JKSM works without issue. I used a New 3ds XL. to backup Mii Maker without using the 3ds keyboard.

Checkpoint backed up all titles for me without using touch with: Hold (Y) to select all, followed by (L) afterwards.
Also creating an empty folder inside SD:/3DS/Checkpoint/<title name>/bla resulted in the ability to back up that title to "bla" with the buttons.

This works without needing a keyboard.

No. i use the sd card manager of my 3ds console.
To be clear for everyone reading, Micro SD Manager is generally not available on the o3DS – though it can be manually installed. (Some people discourage its use since it relies on the unsecure SMB1 protocol.)

And of course manually extracting the data from a backup using ninfs on a PC is an option, but that's the hard way.
