    I've been reading the forums and have seen all the steps to do this but not in the same place and wanted to know if it would work. So I have a retail version of Alpha Sapphire and want to keep my save. If I use gateway to dump the game I would get a .3dz with my save in it correct? And then is it possible for me to convert the game to .cia and retain my save? Thanks for your help

    Quite often I hear that the dump always claims the save to be corrupt.

    However, I recently read somewhere that if you use savedatafiler to extract the "corrupt" save, then delete the save on the ROM, start a new game and save and THEN inject your old "corrupted" save back in, that it will work.

    Mind you, this will only work for card2 games. card1 behaves entirely different.
