    so I've been thinking about a way to do a sys transfer from my N3DS to my O3DS, And I had an Idea. would it be possible to preform a MITM to trick the systems/nintys servers into thinking that they're compatible?

    Maybe, or it could be done with a modded Luma3DS.
    I think it would almost certainly be possible. It might not be as simple as setting the n3DS flag to 0 on the n3DS or to 1 on the o3DS, maybe they're checking the serial number or something, but we have full access to the console so we can change almost anything we want.

    It's just that no one has figured it out yet. I guess no one considers it important enough to look into.

    that could be true. so is it known where the sys transfer checks to confirm 3ds model?

    Sys transfer gets info from and communicates with the servers. AFAIK its already been looked into and it may be impossible. Also impossible to do mitm attacks as it communicates with ninty servers with ssl. I would love to be proven wrong though.

    I've never used system transfer on wii u. On 3ds it transfers either completely wirelessly or partially wirelessly and partially SD transfer. But before it does anything it verifies things like system version, installed titles, and how long ago the previous transfer was (only once per week).

    There is no need to trick the servers because you don't do this via system settings; it's a CTR transfer. Moving the NNID is a matter of clearing the registration from one (phone call or system format), then registering the other. You just either have to call Nintendo or wait a week in between the two.
