    Hey guys,
    I dumped all my retail saves in gateway menu, renamed them to tile id (e.g. ABEP.sav to 000400000007AF00.sav) and copied them to my SD Card (in the 3DS' Card, not the gateway ones) but every game tells that the savegame is corrupted.

    I think it's quite useful to know that the gateway created an ABEP.sav which is 128KB big, although New Super Mario Bros. 2 (from Gateway) generates a 512KB big savegame.

    I don't know what to do. Is there any mistake or an alternative to using gateway save dumper?

    Greetings.

    It seems not to work with SaveDataFiler either. So I think I'm the one whos mistaking.

    For any damn reason this method did not work either. I was using PastaCFW instead of rxTools. I don't think that was the problem (because only the signatures need to be patched, right?). Maybe I'll try with rxTools again. But hasn't there to be a reason why the gateway savegame dumper doesn't work?

    The gateway dumper only works with 512KB save with the old encryption (pre 6.X)

    Ok. That's a damn good reason! Was Pasta the problem at the SaveDataFiler method?

    Nope, it should have worked using pasta. Maybe you did something wrong. :unsure:

    Just saying: <6.x using different encryption for game save compared to >= 6.0. Did you update your firmware lately?

    NSMB2 is a 4.X game, so it should work regardless.

    It failures when I try to import the user save data to SD. Only get the datas in the "filer" folder.
