    I have found a patch for the usa version of the game, is there a patch for the eur version?
    I get this error message:"The save(or savedata maybe, I don't remember and I uninstalled the cia) is corrupt"

    This will happen on the first boot. You may find that the map is screwed up too. Don't panic, just exit the game, go back in, and from then on out, the game will function properly. Just a weird issue that happens specifically for Super Mario Advance 4 as an injected title (regular version or the Wii U version with all E-Levels) on the 3DS on first boot.

    Ok, thanks. I'll try reinstalling it.

    Can someone give me the link to the eur ips patch to get the e-reader levels?

    Anyway even if I play the game two times the error message still appear "Your saved data is corrupted". Please, help me:(

    128K Flash save isn't emulated by agbfirm, so the problem is "normal"!
    (You mean "The save data is corrupted" written in white and yellow on black, that doesn't go away by pressing A, right?)

    You would need a 128K to 64K save patch -- they kinda work for Pokemon because the save is essentially double, but something definitely has to give, which may be the level data for World E... I don't really know tbh, I prefer the SNES version of SMB3!

    OK, right. I thought this too. Anyway I'll try modding the game into creating a 64K save.

    IT WORKS!!! I patched the sram with gbata and now it works! Thanks everyone in this thread!
    Well, kinda, it boots but when I try to load the maps it shows the error message "Your saved data is corrupted"
