    I managed to do gateway save convert for all saves(for moving to B9S) but I happened forget one save which was my Bravely Default one.

    Anyone possibly can convert it for me?

    So after trying to go back to Gateway fw only to make Luma3ds become stock fw and then having to buy a r4i gold to reflash it. I figure I'll ask for some one to please convert these for me.

    Lesson learnt - When the forum posts says (in big red letters) "This will revert your 3ds to stock firmware do not use." It should be heeded.

    Saves are for 3 games (I believe they are USA if it matters):

    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Theatrhythm - Final Fantasy


    Thanks in advance.

    Could theoretically the process be inverted?
    Can I use JKSM to export the save from an installed CIA game and import it on the currently mounted Gateway rom to obtain the corresponding .sav? What about encryption?

    EDIT: I managed to try, and inverting the process works.

    ???
    Been having a few problems transferring 3 saves as I simply cannot find them on my sd card. However when I load the games using Gateway I can access their save data. Also I have quite a few .savs on my sd card where I cannot find any titleid for so I'm just not sure which is which.

    Ok so a little clarification is needed thanks, I currently have 3 saves I want to backup (that being said not important ones) and one from Pokemon Y and currently use Gateway, I have the 3 normal saves but wanted a little clarity on what to do, im unclear if I need to mount the game then boot the software to export the save or not, (even more so for Pokemon)

    Thank you for writing such a guide, it's just a shame that it's a bit lacking. Are we required to be on gateway emunand for this process? or can it also be done on luma cfw? What do you mean on part 2 step 6? Certainly doesn't work for me on luma. Gateway cartridge was not part of the requirements either. Some of us aren't as informed and skilled in this as others, so please don't throw it in there without any explanations. Another weird thing. You don't mention .sav in any of the titleid's you mention. Surely they should have .sav at the end?

    The part with the gateway and jk manager was where it fell apart for me. Doesn't work.

    I don't have a gateway flashcard and I don't know if there's a possibility of converting the .sav file to JKSM. Someone can help me with that?

    You need a Gateway card. You can ask people to convert for you, might get lucky. Unlikely to get someone to do more than 1 or 2 games saves for you though.

    Thanks for your reply. Is there any topic where I can ask for help? It's only for a single game (Hyrule Warriors Legends)...

    Not sure if there is a general topic, but you could try asking in the Noob Paradise thread or make your own topic. Or, you could try searching for someone asking the same thing and pm the person that helped them. Especially if the game is Hyrule Warriors since they'll already have the rom (may have to be the same region).

    you'll need to look up the title id of the game you want converted. I believe gateway uses the title id+.sav for all saves. I can't recall which title id. I think it's the long one while the dumps are the short one (e.g AGME) for some reason.

    That's correct, the save Is already named as you said.

    Hi Guys,

    I just have a couple of questions regarding this, so I recently purchased a N2DS, and I want to move from my 4.5 3DS with Gateway to CFW, but want to make sure I can take all my saves with me.
    1. Can I export on one DS and import on another?
    2. Is it possible to run JKSM without a CFW, like on emunand for example?
    Thanks,
    Vel

    1) you want to know if you can export you gateway saves to cia saves? Yes it is possible (read this https://gbatemp.net/threads/importing-gateway-saves-to-cia-games.425743/ ).

    And if you don't mind could you convert a save for me? I'm desperatery searching someone who can do this :(

    Thanks I know you can export/import them (that's the whole purpose of this thread. All the instructions relate to doing it on the same DS, where as I want to export on one then import on another.

    I don't actually have CFW running on either of my DS' yet, as I need to find the blue card for my gateway (which is annoying as I actually have 2...!) so that I can install the CFW which will enable to install cia files.

    I am going to have a proper look for the card tomorrow, so do you want to upload the file then if I manage to find it I will convert it, otherwise I will have to wait for an r4i card I've ordered to arrive.

    Yes, just copy the JKSM folder to the other console after exporting and import.
