    Okay, first off, I thought I had a NAND backup. Turns out, I forgot that part. I basically wanted to transfer all my games/content from my N3DSXL to my N2DSXL and thought that simply copy pasting the tickets.db would work. Turns out it doesn't. I DO have access to godmode9 but I don't know what to do besides that. I do have a F0F1_NEW3DS.bin from when I installed b9s with DSIware but I'm not sure if it'll help/nor do I know what to do with it.

    Any ideas?

    Couldn't you just have waited a week and done a normal system transfer?

    How do you think I hacked it to begin with? I DID a system transfer but the content I wanted was GBA VC injects and fan translations.

    I guess you can try a ctrnand transfer from your old system to the new one. decrypt9 or godmode9(I think).
    The goal now is to get it unbricked.

    Make sure you do a nand backup on your new2ds before you ctrtransfer.

    It worked. Thank god. I'll make sure to triple check if I have my damn nand backup every time now.

    One last question. This won't have any side effects now will it? My N2DS doesn't think it's a N3DS now does it?

    No, 11.5 synced up the new3ds/2ds firmwares so they're running the same titles. They run in a context sensitive manner based on the system they're on so it should work right.

    Hi guys,
    Srry this is off topic but didn't want to start new one.

    I looked everywhere for a N2DSXL NAND pinouts with no luck.

    Trying to hardmod the new console, any clue?

    Can I DSiware hack my JP N2DSLL with hacked US O2DS? I read they have to be the same region, but is there a way yo change the region of the hacked o2ds?

    Region changed systems can't system transfer. Or at least, no one has reported being successful doing a system transfer with a region changed console.

    Thanks, I'll wait for the hardmod information then. Need to know the pinouts.

    I'll apologize in advance for not being particularly on topic.

    I read this the last few days as "N3DS XL," but now knowing I was wrong, dude, what the hell?

    I doubt there isn't, they just might not be directly near the chip.

    In worst scenario, we would still be able to scrape the trace to expose copper and solder there.

    I just need to know which is which, or any hints how to identify cmd, clk, data then I'll find them.

    My guess is the resistors are the test points ;)

    At the same time, I said a long time ago, the only way to stop a hard modder is to remove the test points.

    As for NTRhax, N probably is not aware of it's existence. They may think it's hocus pokus...



    @zoogie I was indeed correct, the resistors are the test points ;) alt points can be found on the backside of the board as well.

    Just curious, is anyone shipping a new2dsXL to you for science or otherwise?
    It'd be nice to have a second opinion aside from the guy in that link I posted.
