Hi there, So I am pretty new to 3ds hacking but have plenty of experience with other consoles (ps3, wii u, wii etc.). So my questions is, I have a New 3DS XL that is on 11.4.0 and has four swords on it. I was planning to buy a 2ds (the old type and not the new 2ds xl) of ebay that is on firmware 11.3.0 or lower. So my question is, following the guide 3ds.guide. Am I correct in thinking that I can buy the 2ds. Hack it by buying one of the eshop games that have the exploit. (I am guessing I can't just log in to the eshop and re download fours swords anniversary? I own this legally on the new 3ds xl mentioned. And a system transfer just to get it sounds long so I would rather just bite the bullet and buy one the exploitable games still on sale). Then after hacking the 2ds I can use it to hack my new 3ds xl? So I would like to know is: 1. Is What I outline possible? And am I not missing something obvious? 2. Will I lose anything on my New 3ds xl? I have a bunch of eshop stuff I bought as well as my 3ds ambassador certificate I transferred from my original 3ds (which I sold) back in the day. Ideally I would have my 3ds xl running cfw and with all my eshop stuff installed. I was planning to give the then spare 2ds to my sister. 3. Is buying a skydock the best way to get the save files from my original games? Can I then transfer these to .cia 3ds games I will install? Or does it count as a different game as it is not a cartridge copy? I basically want to have all my 3ds games on the system rather than cartridges, with my save files and also have access to homebrew. (Emulators!!!). Thank you very much and sorry if I am asking the obvious. Just want to be sure before I take the plunge. I was originally going to buy a SkyPlus cartridge then thought, hang on.... a 2ds is cheaper.... it means I get two hacked consoles.... and everyone says cfw is way better anyways? EDIT: Just realised I put this in the wrong thread! Sorry! If an Admin could please move it It would be greatly appreciated! All the best.
