    my friend will bring me a JP N3DSLL(with 9.2 firmware) when he back from HK later this week.
    I'm pretty excited since I finally can play with a hackable 3DS again:bow:, then all in title:P




    this is my third 3ds:wacko:. O3DSXL with 9.2 sysnand updated to 9.8 by my little cousin's hand:rolleyes:. N3DSXL with 9.4 as later 20th birthday gift.(happy?):unsure:

    anyone knows the approximate price I can get for selling these two consoles. the N3DS is 0 damage, the original(mario limit edition) is ok...only problem is the battery life.

    You might want to invest in a hard mod.

    You'll also need a JPN copy of Cubic Ninja / Sky3ds JPN .3ds (Glorious region lock)

    @Ronhero regularly region changes Jap N3DS' to Emunand US/EUR. If he's online, he should pop in shortly and hopefully have a guide handy for ya.

    Edit: Looks like a thread that linked to the guide was already on the front page.

    I don't believe eShop and system transfers will work from US to JAP/EU and vice versa, so not fully functioning, but region changing is possible. I don't know specifics but it's discussed and been successful many times in these forums.

    There's a workaround to make eShop etc. work, but I read it doesn't work on n3DS because they come with a preinstalled demo and it doesn't work on 3DSes that come with preinstalled content.
    Since it is hackable, eShop access isn't really essential, things can be installed as .CIA, but it would still be better to have a local 3DS.

    As long as the console isn't 8.1 I can region swap. That guide is a little outdated due to the nus servers being down so a lot has to be done manually

    Indeed, as stated, not stated and implied...
    • You can use a US EmuNAND on a JP system if you want, though you have to set it up.
    • You (practically speaking, technically you can) can't use eShop on a region changed N3DS, though with EmuNAND that's irrelevant.
    • The statement that you might want a hardmod was probably in reference to the fact a prior one has been updated, not that it's a foreign console (though that's also a good reason; keep NAND backups!)
    • You cannot set a JP NAND language to English, that'd be simple.
    • The UI is the exact same, so unless you're trying to play games in Japanese you can navigate just fine.
    • So long as your goal is to have a changed EmuNAND rather than a SysNAND, it should be simpler: No risk of brick, possible easier time changing SecureInfo_A (since you can access the filesystem without a hardmod)...

    All you need to do is install all the region changed cia files to emunand then xor the nand and change the secure file. Once done inject to emunand and if it boots in the region you want delete all the old region titles and system format

    Make sure to copy everything from the sd card and have a backup emumamd so you can swap back and forth. You can use sdf to transfer the saves

    System transfer doesn't work on region changed stuff. If it was still hackable SDF would be a good option, but at this point it looks like tdvs is your only hope. Maybe. (I don't think it's released yet?)
    I have an O3DS at 9.9 (had it on 9.4 before I realized browser exploit existed, and I don't exactly care about cheating in Pokemon) and share the same issue :(

    System was updated, no SDF

    If it's an o3ds I just system transfer to rx tools then downgrade emunand and system transfer or sdf the saves

    Let me repeat, you cannot system transfer to a region changed console.
    Additionally, it seems rather outrageous to get another console simply to get the saves out from SDF. I suppose that would do the trick, but at that point it seems rather not worth it.

    Smealum has shown tdvs exports saves compatible with PkHEX and stated that it can export SD saves, so it should be possible to import them with SDF or NTR.

    If it's an o3ds yes you can? As long as the secure a file is clean and the target and donor both don't have pre installed content. It's just the n3ds that you can't currently

    It's not an O3DS.
    It is a N3DS.


    It's the target recipient of data and the target to region change.
    Where on earth do you get the idea my statement agrees?
