    So not too long ago, My 3DS was stolen. Sucks, sucks for sure, but hay these things happen.

    I'm in the process of restoring to a new 3DS all the things I've lost. I've recovered nearly everything- Except save games. I have an old SD card backup from my previous 3DS. Since this other 3DS is a different machine.install entirely, Restoring old savegames from that backup is not a simple matter of plug and play (I think.)

    Is there a method of decrypting save games from an old SD card backup, or is there a method of transfering the save data from that old Backup to this current system? Googling is failing me and leading me in the wrong directions.

    You need a file from that stolen system's nand called moveable.sed. Without it, you cannot decrypt sd savegames.
    So unless you have a decrypted ctr-nand somewhere, you're outta luck.

    AFAIK the only way you could do that is if you had dumped moveable.sed from the old console. But I may be wrong and someone can correct me if so.

    Oh! What a shame. I won't get my hopes up then. ...I tend to build a LOT of savegames up, so I feel the lesson for myself, and any observing here is to include a dump of moveable.sed with your SD backups.
