    Hey Guys,

    Today, I tried to dump some of my Games (Fire Emblem Awakening, Mario Kart, ...) with their saves with Gateway Ultra 3.0.1
    I installed the Games as cia (created with "3ds_to_cia_v2.00") to my 3DS to play it with CFW.
    Now I tried to use the exported .sav (renamed it to 00000001.SAV".
    for Some Games, like Fantasy Life (used the version I had already installed as eShop game on another card) it worked great.
    But for Games like Mario Kart (Retail Game Cartridge), it doesn't work .

    Is there a way to use the exported saves for cia's?

    You need to extract the sav from the cartridge with savedatafiller and insert to the cia version.

    The problem is: every SaveDataFiler which I found doesn't work on the CFW? Where can I find one which really works on it?
