    Hi. I have a question has someone found a way how to implement saves from Sky3DS saves to CFW? I mean the exact .sav files. Thanks.

    There was already a topic on this very recently. You can use the official Save Data Transfer tool to move saves from Sky3DS to games installed via CIA/eShop with no problem.

    Oh, I apologize. ^_^ As far as I know, the saves from the Sky3DS are encrypted and can't be imported without use of the card. I was searching for similar methods a while ago. I wonder if you could use the ROM file to get the secure keys and use them to decrypt the save file. Perhaps using one of the various save data tools like SaveDataFiler or a variation.

    I think you need to find someone with a sky3ds and same header to rip the saves to raw data

    So, this is a bit of a stretch, but...if someone had the exact .3ds files he used and he sent them all of his .sav files from Sky3DS....could they not import them into their Sky3DS, then export them using SaveDataFiler?

    You need the same template header but that's what I'm thinking

    so i just install cfw to my N3ds. Everything works, then i put my sky3ds into my N3ds, still have the save. Then i switch to emunand, put in sky3ds, and the save is gone. So even with the same .3ds and the same header, the save file in sky3ds also just work for the same 3ds. Maybe you have to do something else to make it work, but i don't know

    That doesn't make any sense. The save file is part of your sky3ds, not your 3ds. You should be able to put that cartridge into any 2ds/3ds and be able to access the saves. It's not connected to the system in any way. Unless I'm misunderstanding what you meant...

    Basically how it works is you boot up your 3DS with CFW so you can run SaveDataFiler (or similar) and use it to back up your saves in a nice, clean, unencrypted format.

    Nope, my save is completely lost when open the game on emunand, it's just that. i try several games but i got the same result. I also run SaveDatafilter and i got red save error all over the screen.

    like i said, those save works when i put it in sysnand first. But when i put it in emunand, it's gone (maybe it's not disappear but it's will create a new save file and replace the old save file)

    Well, I'm gonna have to leave this to the experts. My Sky3DS works fine in Sys or Emu.

    What is this for ?
    My sky3ds works fine, just not the save file. And it just a warning for who consider about this, i already start the game all over again, it's still fun.

    That's what I mean. The save files you use on the Sky3DS are part of the sky3ds, not your system..so it's very weird that you can't load your save file in EmuNand. Wonder if it's like some sort of ExtData issue....
