    The raw savegames are in

    title/00010000/

    If you have a backup of the NAND you can simply restore them.

    Gambia, The
    All subfolders are savegames. If you only want a specific one, you'd need to check which folder belongs to which game.

    To find out, you can convert ASCII to HEX (case DOES matter, because a != A):

    Xenoblade Chronices = SX4P:

    S = 53
    X = 58
    4 = 34
    P = 50

    So the folder will be title/00010000/53583450/

    Edit: Bash-Script to convert asc/hex (save as wiiconvert):

    convert ascii to hex:
    wiiconvert SX4P
    wiiconvert -h SX4P

    convert hex to ascii:
    wiiconvert -a 53583450

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
