    i have a save that was on my console a while back and i back it up (plain jane save from the nintendo 3ds folder). i however downgraded or formatted or something,but in the end in my Nintendo 3ds folder the number of the second folder changed to something different than what is was while using that save. my question is: can i put it back knowing that only the second number changed? if not can i transfer it in any way possible to my console without SDF? i have a cfw and a gateway if they are needed. I highly doubt it could work, but i guess u never know.

    not possible, sd card contents are encrypted with a console unique key, sorry

    -edit, well at least try it yourself, putting the save back to see if it works, nothing to lose apart from a few minutes testing... right?

    Figures but I will try hoping that it is locked to the console fixed Id not the randomly generated one.
