Not sure if this is suitable for this section, but couldn't find a better one.

I've posted before, how I can't recover my save data from my Bravely Default eshop game. (See this post)
I can't even decrypt it with SVDT, since my game doesn't recognise this save file.
I don't have a gateway card (Only a sky3ds+), so can someone please help me with decrypting?

Thanks in advance.

P.S.

Here is my save file.

I assume you're not on EmuNAND and CFW then? You could probably get it working with SaveDataFiler if you were.

Hi DJ

i'm a bit confused.
You said, you have the eshop version of BD.
From where do you have the .sav file?

Afaik a save is only working, if you have the right header of the game with which the save was created.
But when i will come home later. i can give it a try.
Got a gateway and the pal game which i dumped from my original cartridge (private header).
Maybe it works.

Will give you feedback this afternoon/evening.

I'll try the clearify my problem. That save file is from my previous 3ds. I had to send it for reperation but thet send me a new 3ds, without sending over the data.

So while I got them to unlink my Nintendo ID, I cannot restore my backup from Bravely Default.

all eshop games saves are individually enrcypted for every single 3ds, there is nearly nothing you can still do

This section B, which I can't do because I do not have a gateway
".sav" files for game cards are not the same as ".sav" for digital content. anything in the "Nintendo 3DS" folder is encrypted with a per-console key. Nintendo sometimes can transfer this (they did for me when I had to get my console repaired).

if you had linked your NNID before you accessed the eShop, then digital content/saves might still be usable, even if you got a new friend code and the like. this is what happened to me.

if not using savedatafiler(which decrypts games) only a complete system transfer makes your save compatible (it will be recrypted for the target system) without access to the source 3ds, where the eshop sav!(gateway sav and eshop sav aren't equivalent) came from, there is nothing you can do. period.

O well. I'll await Shadowfied's findings, and if no luck, I guess I have to restart, or search around the web for an extracted GAME#.sav which I can import with svdt.

he will fail, sav will be shown as broken on his 3ds, because every 3ds has their own unique encrytion keys, wrong keys will decrypt your foreign save to garbage.

You can try to find a decrypted sdf sav, which you can modify and adapt to your save progress. don't know if Bravely default save editor exist.

I'll try but expect it to fail, and even if it in some magic way does work, you're still gonna have to get CFW in order to restore it.

Well, I found a GAME#.sav which has lvl 65 characters in Chapter 5. So if it fails, I can at least skip a big part. :)
And the village editor on this forum still works ^^
