    So, here's the deal. I had a regular 3DS, which I sold so I could buy a New 3DS. I transferred all the data from its SD card (knowing it was encrypted; just in case), and recently managed to get Nintendo to unlink my old ID so I could re-download all my titles.
    My Tomodachi Life save had a lot of stuff on it, and I tried to decrypt it, re-crypt it using my New 3DS's key (using some tool, I checked both saves), and then tried to put it back, but it ended up being corrupt.
    So my question is: is there a way to transfer an encrypted save from an old system to a new one? Thanks in advance =)
