First , sorry for my bad english, not my main language :P:P:P=P
Ok, i searched everywhere, i swear, but found only fragmented infos, sorry if already answered =/

I'm about to get a o3ds with cfw to be able to play roms
BUT
I'm a collector, eventually i will buy the original cartridges, and i wanna put the saves i will play in CFW on the original cartridges, but not found information if savedatafiller can do this, or if it's even possible by any ways =(

Someone here already do that? thanks anyway

CFW installed games use a different save system than cardtriges.

You could extract the save with savedatafiler, convert it, then inject it to a cardtrige with svdt.
thanks for the answer o/
there any exception, or all games work that way?
how convert it?

CFW save (= CIA save) to Cartridge save:
1) Install SaveDataFiler on CFW.
2) Use SaveDataFiler to export your CIA save.
3) If your 3DS SysNAND is 4.X, upgrade 3DS SysNAND to 6.0-9.2 (Otherwise your cartridge save can't be recognized on other 3DSes!) (Note: Incorrect SysNAND upgrading will brick your 3DS!)
4) Import the exported CIA save to CTR card.

If i understand right, when exported with sdf, the save are converted and work with svdt?

exist any list of games that work this way?
I think it's almost all.
You should notice that:
- Some games have anti-save-restore. You should delete the target's "secure value" before restoring save, in order to disable the anti-save-restore. Otherwise the restored save cannot be recognized.
- Some games don't have a common save, such as Monster Hunter X, which saves in EXTDATA. EXTDATA saves cannot be restored with SVDT.
