    Dump your save file with Savegame Manager GX and post it here. I'll convert it for you. Someone needs to create an app for this.

    That is the PAL copy. I need your US copy (SOUE) so I can convert it.

    You have to hex edit them. However, it won't always work because there can be key differences between regions that make them incompatible. One example is Metroid Prime 3. If you use an NTSC-U save on a PAL version, the game will tell you that the save is corrupted and delete the file.

    Well give me the save you want converted (dumped with SGM GX) and I'll change the region. You can see if it works after that.

    You have to play both regions first. There is probably a way to install the save without that, but I don't know it.

    Okay, use these files and restore the PAL save with SGM GX. You should have your progress from the US save:
