    Posted this here because I know JK's Save Tool is a homebrew in the form of a .cia

    Basically I'm trying to install the new smash bro's update but it gives me an error, and I'm assuming this is because I have the DLC installed from a .cia and I'm wondering can the JK save tool can backup the DLC from it, then I can delete it using system settings, update my game using eShop, then use JK's Save tool to reinstall the backed up DLC

    edit: issue resolved. just redownloaded the DLC from somewhere. took a lot of searching but found it again.

    Since you probably use a CFW with Emunand or something, why don't you backup, try yourself and report ?

    Apparently the tool only backs up the Extra Data and not the DLC itself. So i have no way of backing it up that I am aware of.

    You should be able to with Braindump or something like that. Maybe Devmenu/BBM. I dunno, never tried.
