    I installed a9h+luma. I was using gateway before.Can i recruit the save files in the gateway? I had .3ds and .cia games installed into it. I've backed its sd card before installing a9h(there is a guide in the forum but it involves using gateway emunand and i dont really wanna install an emunand)

    Another question, i had another sd card (i didnt install luma3ds into this) and it had a .cia game savefile. It was a legit copy from e-shop. Can i recruit its savefile?

    1. You can use jksm to extract saves from your gateway cart. Works well, there is another way (iirc) but this works.
    2. you should be able to decrypt the save on the old sd card using decrypt9.

    First question; https://gbatemp.net/threads/importing-gateway-saves-to-cia-games.425743/ credits you @MattKimura

    Question two; did you export said save file? If so, you can import it with JKSM.

    That tutorial includes using gateway emunand.I don't really wanna do that. Is there a way around it?

    I don't know how. That game and its save file was in another sd card and i didnt touch that.

    JKSM can't extract data from GW save as it's encrypted?

    load up your game, then boot jksm and extract the save from the cart. Do this for all of your games.

    I dumped my acnl save with jksm and injected it into cia just fine.

    You misunderstood, that's from cart, I mean the gateway saves themselves.. they're encrypted in .sav format, the tutorial I linked is for the purpose OP asked..

    I don't misunderstand. I booted acnl on my gateway cart, and then I dumped the save from the cart with jksm. I then injected said save into a cia.

    I guess it only works with card2 games. That's why it worked for me, won't work for OP as I'm sure he wants more than just card2.

    I was partially mistaken.

    maybe you could help the OP convert them into .cia format if they upload the saves?

    Thank you, more understanding :)

    Again, doesn't this method include using the gateway? I don't want to install gateway, isn't there another way?

    A tool to automate this process would be fantastic.

    if you still have your emunand backup from when you were using gateway, you should be able to extract/decrypt your saves using decrypt9.

    boot the gw emunand using a9lh and simply extract the saves from the cia using jksm.

    you can dump your gateway .sav's with jksm. its tedious but can be done

    example - yoshis wooly world
    put sd card in pc

    take the save 00040000001A4100.sav - (NOTE this is yoshis wooly world save, others will be different)

    rename that to 000400000FF40A00.sav

    reinsert sd into ds, boot gateway, open the game so it show up just dont launch it

    then extract save with jksm or sdf

    then you can import it to cia
