    Hi,

    I played my games from the original cartridge up to now. Now I dumped some of these games and installed them as cia. When I open these intallations I don't have my saves from the cartridge play.

    Is there a way to copy the saves to the cia installation? I'm on a N3DSXL hacked according to 3ds.guide (A9LH/Luma3DS)with sys 11.1.

    thx!

    Wherever my Pikachu is.
    I assume copy the saves from cartridge using any save manager and injecting them into the cia

    Just use JK Save Manager (google it) to dump the save of your cartridge game, take out the cartridge, and restore the same save into the CIA version after opening it at least once. As a side note, I would recommend updating to 11.3. It's perfectly safe, and pretty much everything works on it.

    wow this was fast! Thx for the info! Will try it with JK Save Manager.

    Because of 11.3: I have my N3DSXL since a week and am new to the 3DS. So I tried to read all the important stuff here as possible, not to screw anything up. I'll will update the next days ;)

    Just remember, if you get a system update notification, don't do the update before googling if it's safe or not.
