    Updating the firmware replaces the firmware...full stop. You do not touch any save/rom/homebrew files at all.

    the game saves are inside the NDS folder, it cant be gone unless you deleted them.

    yes, I do see the save files in the roms folder, but when I change the firmware it does not reconize the save files.

    Some games (like trauma center 2 and GRID) don;t save/read on the sakura so just use the standard firmware until they fix it.
    Always make backups

    grid must be a microSD problem or something, saves fine for me.
