    Hi there. With all this bricking fiasco going on, I've decided to downgrade my Launcher.dat, however, I did backup all my saves inside the SD card. The problem is, when I launch Bravely Default, it's creating a new System and Game save, even though I've copied the backup saves back. So I am wondering what I am doing wrong here.

    Maybe try wiping your SD card and re-copying the backed-up saves. Dunno what else to say, really.

    Play a different game (not bravely default)
    Exit (Home > X )
    Shutdown console (full shutdown. users reported that not shutting down was the issue with savegame not restoring correctly)
    Restore your backup savegame files from PC to SD card
    Launch Bravely default

    It should load the bravely default's savegame now.

    if the savegame is from 2.02b and you change to 1.2 i think the savegame is lost in this version.

    I am having the exact same problem came from 2.0b2 and after downgrading to either 2.0b1 or 1.2 it wont recognise the save.
    Any suggestions?

    Edit: found this whilst digging around

    "For the newer Gateway firmware it doesn't make a difference as far as I know. It's only if you switch to EmuNAND after not using it before that you might run into problems. Pretty sure most of them will work, but some games created after 6.0+ will have problems when you switched over, for example for me this happened with Bravely Default, and as far as I know there's nothing for it but to start over."

    Seems like bravely default is the only one with issues going back and forth with gateway's updates.
