    I was in 7.0 OFW and I made a NAND backup.
    But i made a mistake I didn't backup the full NAND, but only the user partition (user00.bin, .... user06.bin)

    I wanted to downgrade to 6.2 so I restore my full 6.2 NAND backup.

    Ok, so now I can boot to 6.2 again but all my saves are gone (they are stuck in the 7.0 user partition dump)

    I have more than 30 saves in my 7.0 NAND and I really don't want to loose them.

    So my question is: how can I restore them?

    I can't restore the user partition over the 6.2 NAND because my switch will boot to a blue screen, I can't open the user partition with hackdiskmount as I can only open full nand dumps...

    Is there any solution please? Any help is welcome

    Thanks a lot

    Im not sure if that works and if thats banning.

    Open a rawnand.bin with 7z then take your USER Part and overwrite it in the archive
    then download yuzu
    then import your NAND
    then download the Homebrew Checkpoint
    then create a SD Card folder with yuzu (create a folder switch/Checkpoint and put the nro in this folder)
    then load Checkpoint
    then dump all saves
    then import these in your switch

    im not sure if the saves are in the USER part but maybe it can work

    I think saves are in the user partition but are you sure I can open a rawdump with 7z? :huh:
    EDIT: because if I can, I don't need yuzu, I can overwrite the user partition and then use hackdiskmount

    I will try to restore my 7.0 user partition into my 6.2 full nand dump with hackdiskmount.
    Do you know if it can work?

    And then, can I restore the full 6.2 dump made with SX OS with hekate?

    no dont use your own switch. in the User Part are other vars stored when these are like this. you can brick your switch

    you can restore only the user part with hekate. but i wont try it with a switch.
