    I just bought a 9.0 N3DS which is running Reinand now. I played Yoshi's New Island on the Sky3ds and converted that rom to a cia game. Now i would like to transfer the save from the Sky3DS and use it in the cia game. I tried different methods using savedatafiler but i can't seem to get it working.. Can anyone help me with this?

    1) Export Sky3DS save with SDF.
    2) Confirm that your Sky3DS's game ID is the same as your CIA's game ID.
    If yes, go to step 3.
    If not, you should manually rename the exported save folder and the related files' name into the CIA game ID. (Some of the game has V1 V2 V3 in different game ID)
    3) Import the save with pressing R+A button.

    I thought you couldn't backup sky3DS saves with SDF, is that wrong?

    It's available in either of Pasta, NTR, rxTools.
    I haven't checked Cakes and ReiNand then.

    (Edit) In NTR use NTR savegame plugin instead of SDF.
    (Edit2) I have never tried it in GW-MSET downgraded New3DS.
    (Edit3) It may not work in dumping KeyY 6.0 game saves with any CFW in SysNAND 4.X. For those games, you should dump the save in SysNAND 6.0-9.2.

    BTW, I only tried exporting Card1 saves.
