    Hi.

    Is it possible to recover these 00000001.sav files on my bricked New 3DS and use them again?

    I have a 2DS on 9.2 if that can do anything for this.

    Thanks.

    hell
    Can't, they're encrypted with a console-specific key.

    Yeah.

    I'm aware of that.

    Since the SD Card uses a part of a SHA256 of the key it uses for encryption, is it possible I can brute force this?

    You'd be waiting a very long time (possibly years) for a successful brute. It's not worth it.

    Would the only way to decrypt my saves be to open up the New 3DS then do a NAND Dump?

    If I do that, I can't return the console for a new one.

    Is the brick so bad that recovery mode won't work?

    Yes.

    The reason it got bricked is because I was trying to downgrade it.

    Lame. Well, sorry to say but you're most likely SOL without a hard mod and an NAND dump.

    Downgrading firmware is piracy?

    How do I do the hard mod on the New 3DS anyway?

    Is it. savs like what Gateway uses? I thought those could be shared between consoles as long as you are using the exact same rom to play them.
