    Hi, i got a sd card with a monster hunter generations save data that i created on my 3ds when it had no CFW installed, later on, i decided to hack my 3ds and i installed cfw but i used an entirely new SD card (bigger size and all)

    I tried booting my 3ds with my old SD card inserted but i got some type of FIRM 1 error.

    Any way i can just take the save data from one sd card and put it on my new sd card? Nintendo says i can just copy paste all files and overwrite, but im scared it will mess up my CFW.. (Im' using Luma and B9S)

    just update the boot.firm with the one thats on your other SD and you'll be able to boot it again
    then use checkpoint to back it up etc

    sounds nice but one sd card doesnt have any cfw, no fbi or nothing, i just put the boot.firm and i was able to boot in my non cfw sd card, but i dont know how to install checkpoint on it without fbi

    so, put your boot.firm on the old SD, also your boot.3dsx

    then follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup so the old SD has full CFW setup on it

    then backup both the save and EXT Data for your MH

    great, i did everything, i was able to create a backup so i took the save backup folder and put it on my pc, then transfered it to the other SD card (sd card already had checkpoint) i put the folder with the other saved data folders, unfortunatly i launched checkpoint but checkpoint does not detect the monster hunter saved data

    If you hold B, the list will refresh, and you may see the game.
    Also remember to put the folder of the save in H:/3ds/Checkpoint/saves/your game/

    woo got it done... finally.

    Problem was i had to run the game first on my cfw sd card in order for Checkpoint to detect it, then i was able to restore the data without any problems. Thanks for the help.
