    I have a USA n3ds xl with a9lh 11.0 firmware and I wanting to buy a JPN n3ds xl but it has 11.0 firmware. Is it possible to buy fieldrunners on the USA n3ds and then region change to JPN in order to system transfer to the JPN n3ds?

    No (any form of region changing disqualifies your console from using the eshop -especially n3dses-, at least without deleting your account first)

    You cannot region swap an n3ds and have access to the eshop at all. You also cannot region swap to transfer dsiware games as they are region locked. Your only options are to either find a hardmodder, or find a jpn ds with a fw below 11.0.

    There isn't a Japanese exploit game for the Dsiware downgrade, so your only option is a hardmod.

    Oh well I guess only hardmod or wait until Ned releases his exploit, (if there is one)
