    Powersaves backup are encrypted (based on fixed keys from bootrom/kernel, the game's titleid, individual card headers for 6.0+ games...)

    In theory knowing all the involved variables you could extract and recompress .sav and powersaves proprietary format, but I don't think anyone has publicly created the appropriate software yet

    You can't use anything. They're encrypted and there's no way to decrypt them actually

    Gambia, The
    Powersaves uses raw save files + a custom header. To decrypt them you need a hacked 3ds + the retail game + powersaves (because no one wrote a raw save decrypter).
    supermysterychunkhax only works on fw 11.0 or below, if you have a 9.x - 11.3 3ds then use soundhax.
