    Wherever my Pikachu is.
    1. Decrypt9 can dump your carts to cia format
    2. DLC should be fine
    3. Saves have to be extracted from cart and injected to the newly installed cia

    Check "Gamecart Dumper Options" in the Decrypt9 menu.

    •Dump game with hourglass9/decrypt9.

    •Open FBI to install the .CIA file (should be in the files9 folder)

    •Play the game once so it can be extracted.

    •Open JKSM and export your cartridge save, go the the digital copy and import the the save from your cartridge.

    It is under "Gamecart Dump" as said above, but you can find this option also in Hourglass9. Decrypt9 isn't a requirement.

    Fbi can manage save data but it's pretty clunky. If you want to do it often a proper save manager is the better choice.
