    if I were to setup another 3DS with B9S, can I just put the SDCard I have in my current one with installed games?
    Will they show up or do I need to re-install them using FBI?
    Thanks.

    No. You'll have to reinstall them because the NAND IDs are different.

    afaik, if you dump the movable.sed and ticket.db from your old 3ds, and inject them into your new 3ds, you can switch SD cards fine. Correct me if I'm wrong however.

    Doing so will brick it. At least injecting the movable.sed will.

    I don't think that will transfer over save files of non-legal titles, no?

    it will. save profiles are treating same as other files on sd cards.

    Only those invalid tickets will remove after the transfer.
