    Strange, I didn't lose any data when I went from 9.2 to 4.5. My eshop games still have their saves working fine. So does my retail cart of Bravely Default.

    Yes emunand is not affected by downgrade. If your Bravely Default is installed on sysnand though, you will probably lose the save after downgrading

    Hey guys, I have a similar question too. I have a few hours of Fantasy Life (retail) saves that I played on my 9.2 sysnand before Gateway's update. As Fantasy Life stores its saves on the SD card, is there anyway to preserve these saves while I downgrade my sysnand to 4.2?

    Backup both NAND.BIN and SD card files.
    Don't update any SD card file after backing-up NAND.BIN.

    Can't you use SaveDataFiler to backup your saves?

    But downgrading to 4.2 Fantasy Life wont work on sysnand right? So how do I put the save data onto emunand to play it in classic mode?
