Hi i have a 9.2 3DS and i have a legit eshop installed copy of Fire Emblem and Pokemon Y on my SD card and i was thinking of downgrading to 4.X.
My question are:

1)Will the Fire Emblem and Pokemon saves work after i downgrade.

2)If i backup the saves of FE and Pkmn with savedatafiler will i be able to restore them to a rom of the same game or a .cia version of it

since Fire Emblem is a 4.X game. its save data should still work on 4.5, but Pokemon Y is a 6.X game, so its save data will not work on 4.5. also iirc even with a 9.2 sysnand, gateway mode emunand is some how missing the 6.X save keys so it uses the 4.5 ones. so you cant uses savedatafiler to rip the save before downgrading. but i also heard classic mode emunand does work... but you cant run savedatafiler in classic mode so no luck there either.

In short downgrading from any higher firmware is a great plan but at the expense of losing most of your saves. Maybe Gatewait will fix that Soon™.

Pretty sure the save encryption problem only applies to retail carts, not eshop titles.

I have a retail Pokemon Y eshop install on my 9.4 emunand on a 4.2 sysnand 3DS. If you want to PM me I can help you test this.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
