    Hi guys :)
    I have a N3DS with SysNAND at 9.0 and EmuNAND at 10.3. Today I bought physical "Mario and Luigi Paper Jam" in the US and got a little bit into game and saved. I was hoping I could transfer save to GW, but am unable to do so. I even created save in GW mode for game and backed it up with Savedatafiler. Anyone with GW and this game able to transfer save from physical card/cart to game in GW? Thoughts/help appreciated on this :)

    I am following this guide:
    1- Backup Retail Game save using NTR CFW, Gateway backup DON'T WORK !!!
    Press L while loading retail game, screen will flash green twice
    2- Create a new save in Gateway Mode with the ROM version.
    3- Copy .sav file on 3DS SD and rename it to 000400000FF40A00.sav to avoid SDF bug.
    4- In Gateway Mode, enable game ROM with multi-menu then launch SaveDataFiler.
    5- Export CTR save then connect 3DS SD to PC and overwrite SDF backup files with NTR backup files.
    6- Now DELETE both ROM .sav file and 000400000FF40A00.sav.
    7- Back in Gateway Mode, use SDF to import ROM game save to CTR.
    8- Now copy newly created 000400000FF40A00.sav and rename copy to ROM save file.

    Problem is, step 8 doesn't happen, file not created... What do I do?

    Is SDF import fixed in 3.7.1? Do you have GW and this game and able to transfer save? My game is not CIA though (It is .3DS)...

    SDF broken in 3.6.0? Interesting, because I had to use SDF to backup a save file and test out some cheat enabler app for triforce hero's and SDF worked just fine.

    So I did a lil bit diggin to confirm what I really have, 3.6.1. I haven't updated to 3.7.x, I don't have a need for it. Maybe I used SDF on Triforce Hero's before I updated to 3.6.1.
