A majority of the games that I own or have as a cia, I can back it up with SVDT, JK, Savefiler, ect. However, some games i cannot backup. (mainly Shantae and other Wayforward games) I believe it has to do with them not being cryptofixed. Is there some other method of save data backing that i could use on games like this?

I'm pretty sure the CIA version of JKSM works with every game, but if your only option is the homebrew launcher, I don't think there's a way to backup every game.

Some titles (like FE: Fates) use what's called 9.6 seed encryption to protect their content. If you're using the Homebrew Launcher for save backups, then this website is the answer to your problem: https://github.com/ihaveamac/9.6-dbgen-xmls This will also allow for any homebrew launcher based app to work with the 9.6 seed encrypted games. Apps installed as a cia should be able to extract saves from anything, so they need no fixing.

I should have been more clear. The Save data is a 3ds which does not have custom firmware. However I did not know JKSM worked for every game. Thank you for your reply

  • Halbour @ Halbour:

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Halbour, I don't get what you mean by this. You know I spend my time on anything other than GBAtemp.
  • Halbour @ Halbour:

  • Halbour @ Halbour:

  • Halbour @ Halbour:
    i dont, too...
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Good, just checking.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    I wonder if people will start seeing the 3ds as useless and it'll start dropping in price now
  • g174m @ g174m:
    why
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Why post?
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    I'll fight with a post
  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    3ds still seems to be an emulation powerhouse with little to counteract it (what are you going to use? A phone... hah). To that end second hand prices are likely to remain for a while
  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    That said 3ds has no games so one can hope
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Citra has gotten way more powerful iirc
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Everyone turned off the 3d anyway

  • SAIYAN48 @ SAIYAN48:
    The 3D effect was nice to begin with, but even Nintendo stopped putting it into games.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @SAIYAN48, Red text again?
    K3N1 @ K3N1: Okay @Sonic Angel Knight
