    THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM!!!
    Here's what: I had a good old MK7 Profile, 15.9 K VR, 40K + Coins, 5000+ Wins, 3 Stars, Everything unlocked, and unbelievable Time Trial Records (not to mention, Rainbow Road: 01:40.279). Just 3 Weeks ago, I installed CTGP-7 on my 3DS by running a custom CTGP-7 romFS through HANS. I broke my Rock Rock Mountain Record by mistake and decided to undo it through a Save Data Restore using Save Manager 3DS Homebrew App. Once it completed 100% Restore, it all of sudden gave some error and the next time I boot MK7, I get this message "The Mario Kart 7 Save Data is corrupted and will now be erased." I was like "What?!!! Really!!! What the heck!!! Shit!!! NOOOOOO!". And then I redid everything, and only things remaining were: Unlock the Gold Standard and Gold Glider; Get 15,900 VR; get 40,000 Coins; and re-do Time Trials!!!! Now whenever I make a New Record, the game crashes and a black screen appears saying "An Error has occured...... and (I can't remember)"! Now I can't even make a RECORD???!!!!:ohnoes: Please, someone please help me and tell me what's up with my MK7 Copy!!! PLEASE!!!

    Here's technical details of my 3DS:
    Model: New 3DS XL (BLACK USA)
    SYSTEM FIRMWARE Version: Ver. 11.0.0-33 U
    CFW: None
    EmuNAND: None
    Homebrew: Yes
    *hax payload: 2.7
    Hardmod: No
    Downgradable: HECK No
    Legit CIA Installation: No
    Un-Legit CIA Installation: NO WAY!!!

    I'm pleeding for help! :cry::cry::cry: (BTW I'm new to GBATemp!)

    After reading the MK7 modpack you installed, it said "however, it can't update, nor can disable/enable custom tracks", So i can guess is that the save you restored have corrupted the game due to some possible conflicts, if the save backup is still there, i recommend you remove the mk7 then restore the game save after loading the game

    EDIT: I am still new to the 3ds hacking scene so my suggestions are just my opinion.

    Are you sure. I guess you might be right. CTGP-7 might have caused it. Remember I mentioned that I accidently broke the record on Rock Rock Mountain? The ghost data musn't have matched, so it would've caused a conflict. Plus, do you have any ideas why that black screen with an error message comes when I create I time trial record?

    Edit: I am including this as well: After the Data was erased, I tried restoring 2-3 Times again. But I think if I remove the CTGP-7 romFS from my SD, there might be a chance. Any 3ds hacking expert's help will be greatly appreciated.

    I thought I warned people about making a backup of their save data before playing -_-

    Anyway, if the backup you made is correct, there shouldn't be any problems restoring it. Try deleting the save data (I think there was a button combination) and restore your backup. (Make another backup before deleting just in case). Then launch MK7 from home menu.

    If it makes you feel better, no one really cares about Mk7 time trials anymore.

    I guess you're right. I'll move on to MKWii for sometime (recently got my Wii and TV Fixed, so I guess I'll just have fun!)

    That's a suitable punishment for a pirate.

    Here's something I forgot to mention:
    Once I broke my Rock Rock Mountain Record, I boot into MK7 and nothing was wrong. I played couple of times but nothing happened. Only the save was the problem I guess.

    I know better, but this isn't the right subforum for him to ask help for a problem related to hacking and custom crap.

    although this should be in 3DS - ROM Hacking, Translations and Utilities he's new, a simple mistake is understandable under panic and he shouldn't welcomed by someone attacking him.

    But when it comes to Save Data Corruption, it's counted under this subforum. CT is a different topic though.

    FINALLY, GREAT NEWS!!! I used CTRXplorer to view the files in the saveDatabakup Folder. There, I deleted the replay & _replay folders. Remaining files were "system1.dat" and "system2.dat". After that, I booted into MK7, and as it was loading, a pressed and held A,B,Y & X simultaneously. This gave me the option to delete the MK7 Save Data forever. I deleted it, closed MK7 and rebooted my New 3DS XL. I entered the Homebrew Launcher through Menuhax 3.1 and loaded Save_manager App. I pressed B, and it restored system 1.dat & system2.dat. I pressed X button & exited the App. Then I rebooted into the Home Menu & launched MK7. And..... my Data was back (The one I backed up right before I recently deleted my Save Data). I went to Wii Mushroom Gorge, used the glitch (which I never used before) & made a new Time Trial Record!!! And it got saved instead of crashing. I FINALLY resolved at least ONE Problem!!!!

    Thanks to PabloMK7 for giving me the idea to delete the Save Data & restore it again (however, I used a little extra brain and got one problem resolved!).
