    So, my older N3DS bricked on me awhile ago and I finally got me a new one. My question is, if I saved all the data from the SD card to my pc, can I transfer all of it back onto my new N3DS to recover the save files for the games?

    Looks like from what I'm reading, probably not.

    The savedata is encrypt base on each console. Unless we know the key of your Console and the way to decrypt it, nothing can be done.

    Only if you have moveable.sed from the bricked console, or a NAND backup (either to restore, or possibly to extract moveable.sed)

    I'm actually interested in this! So if I backup my NAND's movable.sed, I would be able to always decrypt my CIA installed saves with only the SD files even if the console goes explodeboom?

    afaik, you will be able to use the encrypted SD contents of the other console with yours. You still need a 3ds to do the decrypting tho
