    Hey you guys! I hope some adept can help me find my way through that scene-jungle.

    I have done some googleing beforehand (obviously) but I cannot find the right answer for me. As the title suggests, I am looking to do the following:

    I have a legit copy of Alpha Sapphire that has a save that I don't want to lose. This specific copy of Alpha Sapphire cannot be recognised by the Powersaves decive/software. I am highlighting this because: If it could be recognised, then I would simply follow a guide that explains how to do what I want to do.

    What I want to do: I want to extract that save file from the Cartidge/dumped version of the game preferrably onto a *.3ds file that I will then put on a sky3ds. I don't intend to ever go online again with that game.

    I own two New 3ds consoles. One is on the latest 10.5 firmware. The other one is on 9.0 and runs a gateway emuNAND that is also on GW10.5. I have already dumped the cartridge to a ECLA.3ds file.

    As I said, I cannot decrypt the Save file using this method: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutoria...oras-saves-to-gateway-with-powersaves.378513/ because the powersaves device just won't acknowledge that the game is there! Stupid thing... Anyway, I found another tutorial that won't work with New 3ds ( https://projectpokemon.org/forums/showthread.php?36986-PKHeX-(Gen-6-SAV-PKX-Editor) )

    So is there anyway with my given tools that I can extract that save file from either the cardtidge directly or the ECLA.3ds file and put it on sky3ds so I can use it there?

    Right now I'm lost and don't know how to proceed. I am very thankful for any advice from you guys!

    And thanks!

    why it won't work? you just need an homebrew exploit to extract the save.

    I wrote it won't work because it says so
    It says no new3ds... Did I misunderstand something?

    What would I use then? I have a working gateway emuNAND. But how could I extract the save? I read somewhere that Gateway cannot decrypt Carts that require firmware >7.1 because of the updated encryption... But anyway, could you tell me how to extract that save + decrypt it and put it into the 3ds file that would work with sky3ds?

    you misundestanded, the browser injection method can't work, but the homebrew one CAN.

    Alright I got it. I got the save file and it's working on my sky 3ds now. ButI cannot go online, that's the next problem I've got to take care of! thanks

    (I know I wrote I didn't want to go online, BUT:

    If anyone should have a problem like that ever:

    If your original cartridge doesn't work with powersaves, there is a chance that it does work with the sky3ds cart! Just for fun I injected the sky3ds cart into the powersaves device, and voila, the sky3ds cart can be read! ) So I'm trying to make it work online now and keep it!
