    Isn't it better (easier and faster) to just use SaveDataFiler to backup the save from cartridge and restore it to cia in two steps directly on the 3DS ? Or is it incompatible with SMT IV for some reason ?

    Ah. I'm from the original Gateway crowd and I often forget that pretty much anyone can use homebrew now. Yeah, that would probably be much simpler.

    Nope, you're spot on.

    Insert game, export save, remove game, import save.

    SaveDataFiler isn't homebrew it's an app from Nintendo's SDK.

    Use JK's Save Manager (JKSV) and install the CIA, open the program with your cart in, choose Cartridge, Export the save, give it a name and go. Then go to the SD / CIA section, find the CIA of your game and choose import there. Done.
