    Hi everyone,

    I used JKSM to export my pokemon sun save to into 'main' then used Pkhex to make tiny edits.

    When I used JKSM to import my save back into the cartridge (I use gateway on 11.2) it says data corrupted. When I try to import my original 'main' it says data corrupted still!

    I don't want to lose my progress =(. Anyone got an idea?

    I used the cia version of JKSM from the the thread on here.

    Thanks!

    Did you transfer the file back using Filezilla?

    I've never heard of Filezilla =S. Would you kindly explain further?

    I use Gateway by the way, so I simply replaced the 'main' file in the JKSM folder and imported back.

    It's not relevant then. Filezilla is an FTP client that is known to corrupt saves if they're transferred back incorrectly. I dunno what would be causing this to happen though. I edited my Sun save without any problems, but I'm using a CIA.

    Did you use the cia version of JKSM from the gbatemp thread? The one on dropbox? Maybe I have a bad version.

    Did you start a game on the cart until you were able to save, then tried to inject your own save?

    No I didn't. I just injected directly then tried to start.

    So basically I have to start the game from scratch then try to inject?

    I did exactly that for my cart, and my save didn't corrupt.

    I actually can't seem to start the game at all. It will say the save is corrupted. If I try to reset the save it says there's an error and asks to shut down.

    Otherwise it will say creating save on SD card and get stuck there =/

    Hold L+R+A+B+X+Y when starting the game.

    Nothing happens.

    When do I hold it, right after it begins to load? Before loading? After?

    By the way I'm using gateway.

    After a long and arduous journey, this actually worked.

    However I found out that the retail version and the leaked version won't cross over saves. Keeps saying save is corrupted in the retail version, and I don't know why.
