Is it safe to delete the Eshop from an O3DS?

Is it safe to use FBI to delete the Eshop? This is because it keeps deleting out-of-region DLCs automatically and I don't need Eshop anyway.

    Yes, but:

    1- you will be missing a system title, so the console will not count as fully updated

    2- it's the use of the eShop or the in-app eShop ("mint") which causes licenses to be synced

    3- you can solve the problem better by: removing your NNID (if you use one) then deleting your traditional eShop account, and installing wanted DLC before using again the apps mentioned in (2)

    Thanks for clarifying.
    I already knew about the three points you mentioned, but I wont update my 3DS unless it's an actual new update (I'll Google it 1st).
    1. Well yeah. But it's not like I'll end up on frankenfirmware or whatever, right?
    2. Hah, I always wondered what this "MINT" title was, thanks.
    3. I know, but tbh I want to keep my NNID for now, incase I reinstall eshop in the future.

    Another question, if I update it will simply restore it, right?

    If you delete the eshop you will get constant nags about updating and when you do update the eshop will be installed again. Much easier to simply keep the eshop and just not enter it.

    Is there any way to inject a different title into eshop, like you could with FBI and H&S. That could be a better solution?

    If you don't need the eShop, then just stop opening it.

    1.Make a folder on end of the 3ds homescreen
    2.Drag eshop into that folder
