    Hi Guys,

    Is there a way to back up all my saves, both physical cartridges & eshop download games and then reinject it back on the system? I want to format my o3DSXL and my SD card so I can downgrade it (I did this on my o3DS and it works, so im planning to do the same thing).

    Thanks in advance

    Hopefully you won't lose anything from downgrading, but I suppose it's a good idea to have backups anyway. Using svdt like the poster above me mentioned should work.

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    About "svdt", does it have a function where I can inject it back on my system? It doesn't say anything about "injecting" on the OPs thread.

    One more question, do I need to insert my game cartridge one by one to back that specific game saves? I have a lot of physical game card saves inside and I want to back em all up.

    Well yeah, it kind of has to have access to the place where the save is stored to back that save up...

    Ok thanks, I tried just now and I got that gist of how to inject it back again. Seems I kinda misunderstood on how svdt works. Well then, off to backing up my saves then downgrading later. Got to open the boxes of all my cartridges one by one though lol. Thanks guys

    They're the same, but you need to be able to install CIAs to run Save Data Filer, while SVDT can be ran from Homebrew.

    Another difference is that SDF is copyrighted by Nintendo, which makes it illegal to download.
