    Hello everyone! I recently downgraded my 3DS from 10.3 to 9.2 and then hacked my console (and formatted my SD Card). Before doing all of this, I made a backup of my SD card with SMT 4, an eshop game, inside.
    Now that I have hacked my console, I'd like to have my game with the save back in my 3DS :
    -What folders of my backup should I paste in my SD Card ?
    -Is there going to be a problem with the save ?

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.

    Gambia, The
    you need to simply copy the nintendo 3ds folder back to your sd. If you used menuhax on 10.3, you need to start your 3ds without the sd inserted an Select a theme.
    if you have used the sd already on your 3ds there will be a nintendo 3ds folder on your sd card, you need to delete or rename this folder before you copy your old one.

    But if I simply merge the nintendo 3ds folders I think there will be a problem, because I modified the dbs folder during hacking my 3ds so I thought that I should keep the new dbs folder untouched, am I right ?
    Furthermore I already install some CIA games in my 3ds, so when I will have to merge the nintendo 3DS, is there going to be a conflict ...?

    I say back up your current /Nintendo 3DS/ folder, merge it with your old one, and when it asks about the /dbs/ files, do not replace your new ones. See if that works.

    If it fails, use SaveDataFiler to back up your current saves, replace the folder with your old one, then install the games as .cia (or re-download them from eShop) and restore your saves with SaveDataFiler

    If you just copy the old folder on top of the new one there will most likely be a conflict and only the old or the new data will show up on the home menu.

    If you want to port the save, go get svdt, or find SaveDataFiler to export/import it.
    Yeah i've made some games that i've finished via SaveDataFiler to achives on my PC.
