Had a quick look around but there are no recent threads. Can GM9 do anything to effectively clone a CFW installation on one n3DS to another if they're both running the same CFW?

Just picked up a new one and want to keep my old config/save/installation etc so whats options, folks?

There's not an easy/quick way to achieve this (something like a title/content/config direct transfer), just the normal way, I suppose: dumping your installed content/games one by one (on .cia format) and his related save data, and reinstalling the cias and reinjecting the save data on the other console.

Or the other way could be performing an oficial System Transfer between both consoles, but first making either a NAND & SD backup of your main/origin console and later (after transfer) restoring them. But System Transfer involves NNID account transfer too, then your origin console will lose its NNID (it will be unasocciated to that console and associated to the new one).

If I'm wrong (or there is an easy way that IDK), please correct me (and excuse me in advance)

Yes I was looking for something like direct transfer from one 3DS to another as I thought that GM9 might've made that leap with all of its levels of access. Thanks for clarifying.

I don't have an Nintendo account on the machine, never signed up.


Interesting approach, thanks.
