    use sdf, boot it up in gw mode, dump the eshop save and then restore the save to cart (make the pokemon game the current game showing up in home menu form the rom loader). it will take less than 10 seconds, no exiting the program :)

    Take a look at this GUIDE for converting cia saves to .3ds/z saves, and vice versa.
