    Which game and region? What happens when you try backing up the save + extdata with Checkpoint v3.5.0 and (if you have it), SaveDataFiler?

    Animal crossing new leaf, USA, and I haven’t tried those two, but I tried some ACNL backup tool, and it too gave me an error about not being able to access save data archive. I’ll try checkpoint next

    :!: Because of this game's anti-cheating protection, make a copy of:

    AC:NL (original), USA region:
    • smdc:/Nintendo 3DS/<ID0>/<ID1>/title/00040000/00086300/data/00000001.sav
    or

    AC:NL - Welcome Amiibo (USA):
    • smdc:/Nintendo 3DS/<ID0>/<ID1>/title/00040000/00198e00/data/00000001.sav

    If you happen to tamper the save file or there's a mismatch in the secure value, the game will automatically delete all your progress. There's a way to bypass and reset the secure value by backing up and restoring the save.

    Since you're having problems backing it up, I think I have a clue as to why yours isn't working with JKSM and ACNL backup tool. Would you happen to have a special edition 2DS/3DS model that came prebundled with AC:NL or may have acquired a universally legit *.cia version of this game? A simple 'yes' answer will suffice for ambiguity. :)

    This appears eerily similar to what happened in this thread:

    ***

    If you have no luck with Checkpoint and SaveDataFiler, it might be possible to backup the save with Windows program fuse-3ds and Python script 3ds-save-tool.

    The steps are somewhat messy mounting the Nintendo 3DS folder with an extract movable.sed to decrypt the 00000001.sav file and punching in the code lines to break up the *.sav into a form usable with JKSM, Checkpoint, or SaveDataFiler.

    I can try this from my end like in:

    Okay done! :D Good to know.

    Mine came with no games pre-bundled, and as far as I'm aware, this game was gotten off freeshop.

    This is the closest thing I could find to my error, I think

    I'm almost certain that I was once able to change my save before in the past. The 3DS hasn't done anything in months, hasn't updated, hasn't had any drastic changes, but when I tried to do something yesterday, no programs worked.

    Checkpoint, however worked like a charm! It both backed up my save and restored it. Thank you so much for your detailed response, I really appreciate it.

    I've been messing around with JKSM for an hour, and I have no clue whatsoever how to import any saves anywhere. While the titles show up fine, the save data is empty and confusing, even when there's quite a lot of progress in the game.

    Context: I'm trying to import a Pokemon Prism .sav into an injected VC copy. I found the copy within the titles, but can't do anything with it - it's as if the rest of the SD card is impossible to access.

    Anyone still interested in *hax support? It took longer than I thought, but maybe I finally got it straightened out.

    Well, I'm definitely appreciative of your efforts. :) It's something I hope I never actually have to use, because if I'm ever restoring save data, that would mean something went horribly wrong.

    Does it still produce cryptic error messages if you try to takeover Mii Plaza?

    Uploaded a newer version to git just now. Not much has changed. This is mostly for people who still use hax.

    It will still just say it can't open the archive under hax mode. Extra data can be dumped from Mii Plaza, but the actual save data is a no-go with just hax permissions.

    I don't suppose it's possible to discern between "that file can't be opened with current permissions" and "your NAND is completely unreadable, time to panic", is it?

    Hello there! I've recently gotten into Homebrew on the 3DS. I've found an Animal Crossing New Leaf file editor, and it says to use JKSM. However, when I select it, it freezes on a permanent yellow bottom screen. I honestly don't know what to do and I've tried it multiple times. Can anyone help?

    If you're using the *hax version, then you probably need jksm.xml in the same folder as jksm.3dsx. This just came up on the previous page.

    Hey! I was trying to hack pokemon sun (digital copy) I used the JKSM to make the file but now that it is done and edited, I can't quite work out how to extract or essentialy put the modded file to the game. The only options are To save/delete data and extra/delete extra data. The old menu said <extract files> or something like that, is there an option like this in this menu?

    The folder menus were merged. Once you enter save data, there will be a list on the bottom screen of what each button does. Y is restore or import. Press it while the folder you want is selected.
