    Yeah, as it states in teh title, I'm trying to restore my Moon save data, after downloading a FreeShop copy. But after seleting Moon with JKSM, it crashes the 3ds.

    Any work arounds. How can I get my save data back to where it should be?

    Have you played the game again first and had it create a new save file? JKSM will fail if you don't let the game make a save for it to import into first.

    Yeah, I made a new save. I think I'll get the starter first though, try that to find out if the file isn't big enough or something.

    try safedatafiler. Create a new save. Export it. Search the main.bin file from JKSM and replace the main.bin you exported with it.
    Import the save with SDF und delete security value of the game (with SDF).

    Just out of curiosity but why do you have to delete the security value? Saw another post saying the same thing but I never found out why

    Imagine saving before Mewtwo, exporting Savegame, catching Mewtwo, trading Mewtwo over to pokebank, importing savegame, repeat.
    The security value (as much as i know) should make sure that you can't import any older save game or someone elses (security value does not match).
