    So i recently switched from gateway to a9hl and i had to swap all my games to cias and then install to my 3ds but for some reason my alpha sapphire save didnt get converted so now im trying to get the main (or the save file) from the 3ds file of it i still have to get back my data. im using 3ds explorer and i cant seem to locate the main file can someone tell me where or what i can use to extract the save.

    going through a bunch of googling right now and the issue is most solutions involve either gateway access which i dont have cause im on 11.2 or a second 3ds/friend with gateway access.

    Try this: https://www.reddit.com/r/3dshacks/comments/3gm0t1/converting_sav_to_cia_without_gateway/

    The original tutorial is located here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutoria...v-to-eshop-3ds-3dz-with-savedatafiler.380246/

    Also, please read EVERYTHING before saying you still need a Gateway Cart cause you don't.
