    As I planning to buy the 3DS XL soon, I already planned to sell my 3DS to my brother in law. But I need to know how I back up all my stuff (ambassor games, my Mii and information/setting.) to my pc so I can give it to him straight away. Is there a why to back up all my stuff or do I have to wait for the 3DS XL and do transfer system? Thanks.

    You have to wait until you get the 3DS XL an transfer the system over.

    But my brother in law said he said he don't mind to have it now. So the best bet is just wait and do system transfer?

    It's not the best bet, it's the only bet. You can't backup the system any other way. So it's either wait until you get the 3DS XL or don't keep your current games.

    Got another question. Once I owned the 3DS XL and transfer my stuff from my normal 3DS. Will it transfer everything including Wifi setting and my eShop account so my normal 3DS will be like factory setting without my eShop account?

    To your right ->
    Your eshop account is connected to your club nintendo account so you need to just log in to tranfer your account. I'm not sure about wifi settings. You can copy any dsiware to the sd by going to settings/data mangement/dsiware and copy each file to the sd. All your extra content using 3ds files is already on the sd. You may be better of just swapping sd cards.
