    Hey, I'd like to replace my CIA from the internet with a legit CIA from an eshop clone, so it is compatible with Miiverse (Competitive MK7, don't ask). I know this is nitpicky, but I really don't want to lose my activity log data. I know how to backup saves and all that. I just want to keep the activity log data. Thanks.


    also this is the right place to post this right

    If they share the same TitleID then they should be kept when you install the new CIA over the old one

    As long as the original cia not modified in any way, then it should be fine. Also make sure that you get the one from the same region.

    Can you delete the activity log?

    I think the original CIA may be modified. It's labeled as "Online Patched" and the game name on my 3DS is MARIO KART 7.

    Sure you can: top section (graphs and lifetime walking history) is in PTM driver's save, bottom section (book with icons) is in Activity Log app's save
