Hi there At the time I own a 3DS on 9.2.0 and I plan to buy a new 3DS as well. I do not own a Gateway/Sky3DS yet, and I have bought a lot of items on 3DS eshop. So: 1 - Once I buy a new 3DS I plan to make a system transfer from my current 3DS. Will that mean that I will have to update my current 3DS to the latest firmware (and thus making the flashcard useless)? 2 - If I do not make a system transfer and use a flashcard at 9.2.0, will I be able to access the eshop and redownload whatever I have bought from there?
