    I used svdt to backup a Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers save and I ended with a .txt file (that I've attached to this post). For a couple years now, I've been using the R4i Save Dongle to backup saves from and to my 3DS without issue. However, the saves are in .sav format and despite my best efforts, I am not able to restore a save from a couple years back to the game using the Save Dongle. Every time I try to, the game just prompts me to begin a new campaign. :(

    Is there any way to convert the .sav to .txt or just extract the necessary save file info? I'm super lost over here, any info would be most appreciated.

    Do you have homebrew on your 3DS? If you do I recommend that you use JKSV instead. It is very simple and easy to use and you most likely won't run into any problems.

    Unfortunately, I soft-bricked my console during the downgrading process and was forced to update to 11.0.0-33U, and JKSV runs only as a .cia file right? :(
