Hello everyone, first time poster here, so if I posted this in the wrong place please let me know where to post it.

Anyways, my brother's 3DS's data was wiped during a failed system transfer thus rendering the games installed on his 3DS useless. So I reinstalled the CIAs and tried using multiple methods to restore the saves. Everything I've tried has not worked. If anyone could give some input I would greatly appreciate it.
I've attached a .zip folder of all his .sav files.

What do you mean by failed system transfer?!
Transfer = 3DS n°1 ---> 3DS n°2
Because the only chance is to inject the movable.sed of the 3DS n°2 on the 3DS n°1.

Yeah, but if the movable.sed was transferred on the target system during the system transfer, it's possible to dump the movable.sed file and inject it on the old 3ds (aka the source system). Right? (i hope for him XD)

What is weird is that the target system did NOT change. It was like it transferred everything, then decided to just wipe the original system. Was trying to help a friend put arm9hax on his 2DS using the Fieldrunners method since his 2DS is on the most recent sysfirm. My brother's 3DS is the old one.

movable.sed just a public key....
only contents installed with this it can be shared.

It's not an universal key
Errr... I know... I know, and?

Is there a way to view it on pkhex? So I could just "make" a new save with his old pokemon?
Nope, you can't, the save file (in the NINTENDO 3DS folder) is encrypted with the unique movable.sed from the old 3ds before the failed system transfer.

Is there a way to rip out our unique SED, so that our saves can be decrypted in future situations like this?

(assuming we didn't manage to back up our latest saves of sorts.)
Yes, you can dump/inject it with decrypt9.
https://github.com/d0k3/Decrypt9WIP
(this needs arm9 privileges aka cfw)

edit: but the real question is "Why the system transfer failed?!"

I'll now backup mine to prevent such future issues!

As for why the system transfer failed.. Maybe nintendo new prevention method?

In the worst case, with decrypt9, you can do a ctrnand transfer...

There is a possibility! @EntrustedOne Have you a backup of the old 3ds NAND (before the failed transfer)???
If yes, you are saved! Yep, just restore the backup, run the pokémon games and use jk save manager to backup saves.
