    So... I lost my 3DS, but I still have a backup of the entire SD card with the game data as well as a NAND and Xorpad Backup. I want to get my saves decrypted and transferred over to a new 3DS, but since I don't have my the 3DS that I lost anymore, I can't just go on it and decrypt/export the saves with a save manager. Is it possible to get my saves transferred over?

    I thought that was for the game itself and not the actual save file (correct me if I'm wrong)

    Is that so? I was thinking decrypting my NAND backup from the lost 3DS and somehow get an EmuNAND running with it's secureinfo (or whatever files handle save data encryption).

    You can do this actually. Using GodMode9 you can mount your NAND backup BIN and extract your Movable.sed file from NAND, which is the file that encrypts your saves. While I'm fuzzy on the details, you can use that file with Decrypt9 to decrypt your saves. Then you can re-encrypt them on the new 3DS and I believe use JK's Save Manger or SaveDataFiler to delete the Secure Values.
