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.

    there need to be more man nipples I hate when a lot of drawn art doesn't suddenly draw nipples on males only females, as if its to ignore reality
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because its considered like it doesn't exist, doesn't have function etc
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
