Is there any way to make my saves compatible?

    So I bought a 3DS on 3.0.0 and installed rxtools, but now some of my games are broken. For example, Alpha Sapphire's save reads as corrupted on the 3DS, but works fine on my old one. My Link Between Worlds save data was actually automatically deleted.

    I've read that this is something to do with a change in the way save files work after FW version 6.

    My sysNAND is on version 4.5, and my emuNAND is 9.9. Is there any way to get my Alpha Sapphire (and other games) to work on this 3DS?

    Thanks

    I guess you downgraded your console and/or played them first on a updated console.
    Just update y console with one of the 2 games (if you have the web browser installed), there is no reason to stay on 4.5 unless you have a Gateway.

    Would that be safe? I have GBA cias installed onto the sysNAND, will no issues arise if I were to update to a version above 6.0?

    Yes it's safe, but you can do a nand backup for good measure.

    A NAND backup of sysNAND? I already have one from when I first installed rxtools, I'm guessing I'll need to do it again?

    One made with the gateway launcher, not rxTools.

    Of course, thank you. I'll return when I've updated
