    Anyway to copy a DSiWare game from a new 3DS to an old 3DS? Then I can use seedminer for free.

    The nearest thing to that would be to do a system transfer from the New 3DS to the old one. However that would copy everything including the NNID account and leave the New 3DS emtpy. Even if you do that it will only work if the DSiWare game was bought originally from the Eshop, with the NNID account that was transfered with the game. Under no circumstances is there any way to do seedminer with a pirated version of the game.

    I should add, if you do that you can't then transfer the account back to the New 3DS again without it deleting everything from old one. You can also only do a system transfer to /from a 3DS once every 7 days.

    Also I'm pretty sure you can't transfer from a New 3DS to an Old 3DS, only the opposite

    I don't think that is true. Pretty sure it works from any 2DS/3DS to any other.

    Dude, just get another $2 DSiWare game (or an NTRBoot card), it's not that big of a deal spending such little money

    Can I install CFW on multiple 3DS with one NTRBoot card? I still have a few 3DS in my family.

    Yes, you can use it on as many consoles as you want.

    Just make sure the cart is compatible. The one everyone recommends is the R4i Gold 3DS Plus, which comes already flashed with ntrboot and comes with a magnet too, while the cheapest compatible one is the R4 Gold Pro (which needs to be flashed), but the R4i Gold 3DS Plus is apparently a way better DS mode flashcart.
