    Hey all! I've been running into quite a bit of trouble trying to get my retail save into my .3dz, am using a N3DSXL + Gateway for the .3dz

    The steps i've followed are:

    1. set up the original microSD the console came with for NTR
    2. export retail Smash with NTR Savegame Manager Plugin (This just gives me account_data.bin and system_data.bin, is that correct?)
    3. install some possibly antiquated version of SaveGameFiler because honestly, I have no idea where to find a proper source of these things (I think I downloaded a "newer?" version of 3DSDevKit, but am currently unsure 1) how to uninstall the SaveGameFiler.cia and 2) if a "newer" version would make any difference, but apparently it did fro someone on the forums
    4. attempt to export the Smash.3dz save so I can replace what's inside and import it (won't work, I keep running into a CTR Card Broken error, and hell, the files I got from the Savegame Plugin Manager don't even match what SaveGameFiler explorts when I tried it on POR)
    So could anyone possible point me in the right direction? Goal is to take my retail Smash save and put it into my dumped Smash.3dz so I can play online with my friends with a 1.0.5 update through cia.
    Thanks!

    You can get around the CTR Card Broken error by renaming the smash bros save (00040000000EDF00.sav) to 000400000FF40A00.sav. Just make sure to use the multirom menu to select SSB4 before using savedatafiler. After you dump the GW backup, replace the freshly dumped Gateway save with the NTR retail save on your SD card, use savedatafiler, go to the SD menu, and press L+A to import the save data to CTR card. Rename the 000400000FF40A00.sav file back to '00040000000EDF00.sav' and it should be working from there.

    Is there any issue if my NTR dump is just account_data.bin and system_data.bin? Smash won't start after I dump the save with the NTR plugin (Hold L, wait for two green flashes, press A), so I'm afraid the save might not be dumping properly.)

    Nope, you're fine. That's the same format that savedatafiler will export the save as. I also had the same thing happen to me with the green flashes, but it all worked out fine.

    Awesome, glad to hear all my hair pulling and nail biting from when I was struggling to figure this all out wasn't for nothing. :P

    (Thanks, Thorasgar, for pointing me in the right direction!)

    Nice! if you dont mind may you please explain in details what you did. i want to get my smash bros 4 and my mario kart 7 cartridge saves converted to gateway

    so far heres what i have and what did.

    i have a N3ds on SYSnand 9.0 and my EMUnand also on 9.0

    i have installed NTR CFW 2.2 and used the savedata plugin on smash bros 4.
    that resulted in me getting 2 files

    a folder called save_00040000000edf00 containing a sub directory called save_data and finally inside that are 2 files called

    account_data.bin (21kb)
    &
    system_data.bin (205kb)

    then i reinstalled my CN gateway exploit and went to my emunand and installed savedatafiler.cia and launched it.

    i am stuck here

    how do i convert those 2 bin files to 1 .sav file?

    Here's what I wrote in another thread:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    you basically need to 1) export your rom's save using savedatafiler, 2) REPLACE what you exported with your retail save (with savedatafiler, you'll export two .bins, which you can replace with what you got with the NTR Savegame manager), and 3) REIMPORT the save into the rom through savedatafiler.

    im so close but when i try to import save i get
    failure!
    level -7
    summary 4
    module 17
    desc 120


    EDIT: I GOT IT WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:lol:
    I did it again but before exporting the dummy renamed savedata i clicked remove delete secure value and then export, then i removed the sd and replaced the 2 files and went back to save filer. booted back to gateway mode and loaded smash bros 4 but not start it then i went back to save filer and imported to CRT and regular import and no error!
    then i removed sd and renamed the renamed save back to the smash 4 save and bootes um smash bros 4 and my save worked!

    thanks a bunch!
    il try and see if this work with other games too:bow:

    Damn, I'm really interested in getting my Smash/MarioKart retail saves working on my gateway. Is this really necessary to have cubic ninja ?

    Does the NTR work with launching the cubic ninja rom from the gateway ?

    i only have to use the cubic ninja because i have a N3ds, if you have the O3ds i "think" you can do the browser exploit.

    To launch NTR you'll need either a retail copy of cubic ninja or a sky3DS. You can't launch NTR from gateway mode.
