    After reading through the Plailect guide and also forumer's comment, can anyone point the correct direction for me? I have read that if we do a region change, we will not be able to access the e-shop anymore.

    I have 2 N3DS
    1) A9LH 11.2.0 N3DS (US)
    2) normal 11.2.0 N3DS (E)

    Since I don't have one of the four listed DSIware, "DSiWare Downgrade (App Injection and Second 3DS)" seems to be the only way for me. However, the source N3DS (running A9LH US region) has a different region with the target N3DS (normal N3DS EU region). So I would have to do a region change on source N3DS before downgrading the target N3DS.

    i) Using the region change guide to change my source N3DS with A9LH to EU region
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide_RedNAND/wiki/Region-Changing

    ii) Buy a DSiWare game on the target N3DS (since I've already changed region, I will not be able to access the e-shop so what are the alternatives to this)?

    iii) proceed to downgrade following the guide.

    any help or suggestion is appreciated!

    Quoted directly from the region-changing guide:

    "After this process, only New 3DSs which have never accessed the eShop before and any Old 3DSs will be able to access the eShop after creating a new NNID on their new region. Region changed New 3DSs that have already accessed the eShop on their original region cannot create a new NNID and access the eShop on their new region!"

    Can I use a CIA Europe version of the game to downgrade(app injection) instead of buying it from the E-shop, since I am not able to access the E-shop anymore?

    I'm almost in the same situation as you, but EUR A9LH 11.2 and a US 11.0. Would love to hear if you were successful with region change -> system transfer. thanks.
