Hi, unfortunately my switch broke in March, fortunately I was able to save the savegames with Checkpoint. Now I was able to get a new switch for an acceptable price.

But Checkpoint doesn't support SXOS anymore, so I'm looking for an alternative to restore the savegames.

I found JKSV and SXSM.
Is there a way to rename the folders so that you can use the Checkpoint saves in these other programs? (The Switch Saves must have still the same "system").

Thanks it worked!

If someone has the same problem I would recommend JKSV because SXSM zips the saves additionally. I clicked on „Dump All“ in JKSV and then exchanged the contents in the lowest structure with the checkpoint dumps (Also lowest structure). Since special characters do not show the name of the games it helps to google the folder names (wich is the Title ID) to see which game it is. Finally you can restore the saves in JKSV.

Hi. Sorry I have the same issue but I don’t understand the suggestions given by masagrator
I have a lot of dumbed save files from Checkpoint in preparation with moving from SXOS to Armosphere. But I just discovered the CP doesn’t work on Atmosphere. Can somebody please explain step by step how I convert my save files to work with JKSV? Thanks

You don't need to, you can use the same emuNAND and save data with Atmosphere..
What masagrator meant is to dump (blank) save data with JKSM, look at the folder structure of both Checkpoint and JKSM dumps and replace the files that have the same name before restoring.
The OP only needed to do that because he got a new Switch and couldn't reuse the same emuNAND. If the Switch you used SX on still works and you still have the emuNAND on it then it doesn't really apply to you. Hekate detects SX emuNAND and allows you to set it, only the Nintendo folder will not be changed to SD:\Emutendo the way SX does it, but to SD:\emuMMC\RAW1\Nintendo instead, you can manually move the folder. Or add the line "nintendo_path=Emutendo“ (without quotes) to SD:\emuMMC\emuMMC.ini after setting the emuNAND in Hekate.

Save files don't work exclusively with one CFW or another.
