    ok so i was messing around with my 3ds's 1 being AP and the other normal one.

    So i was wondering what would be transferred with a system transfer so i transferred From
    AP device to non-AP device the AP goes over with the ability to downloaded and re-download each game.
    and the AP device looses everything making it non AB


    i wanted to test this for people wondering if a system transfer will ruin there AP rights or if anyone was going to buy one off E-bay or something

    if this was already confirmed i apologize.
    thank you and goodluck

    Thanks for the confirmation~

    unfortunately, my little brother already lost his opportunity to have the Ambassador games (even though he bought it full-price and before the deadline). ;O;
    I could've (secretly) migrated them onto my (future) 3ds. :ph34r:

    Nintendo already told us, but thanks anyway :ha: It is not the 3DS that is the ambassador, it's the owner of the 3DS.

    I've done that too. But if you check on Nintendo's site to see if a particular 3DS is ambassador, using the old one's serial number will still say it's eligible while the new one won't.

    So, if I had two ambassador 3DS systems and I used system transfer from one to another, does one lose it's ambassador status?
    Judging by the official site that's what it looks like.

    I was hoping I could transfer mine to my brother's (he hasn't started using it yet) then format mine, then transfer back and have us both keep ambassador status. I guess not. :/
    The reason is because my DS mode wifi is completely messed up, doesn't search or do download play or anything.

    wait wait wait...I have those games saved onto my sd card though so shouldn't I be capable of just removing the card and just putting it in another? I can understand the inablility to copy the files but I would at least think I could just move them.

    no you can't. the files are encrypted with a key that is changed for every 3ds

    I transferred my stuff over to a new 3DS and my ambassador status wasn't lost.

    Formatting won't remove your ambassador status.
    The shop data is saved somewhere else.
    Really.

    I know formatting doesn't remove ambassador status, but when I transfer one ambassador to another 3ds that already has ambassador, I think the first 3DS loses it...

    Why do you need to transfer at all? Formatting will only affect your saves, not your eShop.

    I think s/he meant that the Ambassador status carried over the new 3DS, thus, not "lost".

    I don't want to lose my Friend Code, it would be kind of hard to find everyone I've added because their real names =/= their usernames...
    And I have like 82 friends on my list.
