    Hi guys, as the title says, I got my Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate save file corrupted :(
    I was playing as usual Monster Hunter on my N3ds with 9-5 emuNAND, but when I closed the game it hanged so I turned off the console with the power button. When I tried to play Monster Hunter again my save file was corrupted, is there any way to restore it? Luckily I had a backup of all my saves so I "only" lost 16 hours of gameplay, however it would be nice to recover it and avoid playing again a consistent part of the game.
    Thanks in advance

    I don't think so. Your options were to back up your save periodically or hope for the best. This happened to me on 4G. Turned out to be a bad mSD in the gateway. Replacing it solved everything and it has not happened again. For me it wrote the save half way so it became corrupt.

    Or just install as .cia, much safer that way.

    Is there any way to inject a Gateway .3ds rom save in a .CIA?

    Yep. Just use savedatafiler. Most times both versions (digital and physical) have the same title ID.
