    Sakura converted my sav file to 1mb, but i lost all of my progress,... then i red somewhere that Touchpod still uses your old sav file, so i loaded the game in Touchpod with my backup save, and the sav file was converted to 1mb without losing my data [​IMG] Now i can run the game on Sakura [​IMG]

    Tell me if this solution works for you too .

    Anyway, i have a 1mb sav file just after finishing the snow temple. Here! File Name : Link
    ( For those who lost their data using Sakura 1.45 )

    ***** AMPonzi solution might work also, using this File Padder and specifying 1048576 bytes for the sav file size.

    If this works, you may have just saved Christmas! [​IMG]

    Fortunately I haven't lost any data from the update, but this might help a lot of people. Thanks!

    So what this will do is convert your hacked save to work with Spirit Tracks easily?

    WOOOORKS!! Just tested it. Why m3 didn't just use an easy solution like that?!?!?!?! Padding. But of course they want converters and stuff that destroy saves and game compatibility.

    Wish I read this before starting up Sakura first. I was at the Sand temple and lost my game. Don't think I made a backup.

    I'm at my family Christmas gathering and I just tried this on 3 of my cousins' M3DS Reals. It works like a charm!

    The only problem is that I think the save file causes DiskCheck to freeze when you try to boot Sakura. If you get locked out of the firmware, use this to disable DiskCheck.

    After noticing the new save Sakura created was 1mb, I wrote a little c++ program to pad my save to 1mb, and it worked fine. Glad I made a backup of my card before updating.
