    As it says if it exists I don't see it so currently rx tools is pretty much useless as there's no way to do it currently so it seems to be kinda useless at this time.

    I meant to say to use it as emunand as I'd like to have the emunand support to reduce the chance of bricks.

    What? You want to have a .cia installer on RX mode don't you?

    Format emuNAND with the Gateway launcher (no GW needed)
    Your CIA installs will continue working fine in emuNAND.

    I tried that but they didn't show up, is there any reasion why bbm/devmenu wouldn't show up on a seperate sd card? I had the 2gb one that came with it in my ds when i was doing tests, but I used a 16gb sd card(copied all of the same files onto it) butthey didn't show up.

    When you install emuNAND it formats your SD-card. You need to either:

    1. Format SD card with Gateway.
    2. Run Pasta CFW.
    3. Install BBM
    4. Run RxTools

    OR

    1. Backup SD card with CIA installer and such onto computer
    2. Format SD card with Gateway
    3. Copy your backup onto the Gateway card
    4. Run RxTools

    If you had used the SD card in the 3DS before copying the files over to it, it would make a new Nintendo 3DS folder that could cause conflicts with the files you copied over making them be ignored. So try deleting the Nintendo 3DS folder off the 16 GB card and copying all the old files onto it again.

    OK that ended up working,is there any other way beyond gateway to get the saves to go into savedatafiler? I already have them in a .sav file named the full title id.

    What are you actually trying to do?
    SaveDataFiler can't read .sav files.

    Well yeah I know that andthat's my issue. I only have an r4i card which doesn't do sig patching so I cannot use it and savedatafiler.

    Edit: also afterusing rx tools to decrypt all of the games, they all compress the best one so far seems to be cubic ninja(just to play it some) went from 94MiB to 24MiB, mario kart 7 went from 637 to 586 so all in all everything shrunk by at least some space. Tomorrow I'm going to try to convert to cia somehow and make sure that they're all zero keyed.
