CTRNAND transfer also transfers other console's ticket.db etc. - It can remove your bad tickets!

    ......by replacing your own ticket.db with other console's ticket.db using CTRNAND transfer, theoretically.
    You still have to find out a console with a ticket.db including zero bad ticket, and then use it to dump CTRNAND transfer image.
    You cannot use Plailect's Guide's all the 2.1.0 images and 9.2.0 images because they have already contained bad tickets such as FBI / Sysupdater / HBLauncher 's ticket.

    Steps:
    1. Find a exploitable console with a pure clean ticket.db.
    2. Boot Decrypt9WIP and dump CTRNAND transfer image (ctrtransfer.bin).
    3. Put the ctrtransfer.bin to the Target Console you want to remove the bad tickets.
    4. Boot Decrypt9WIP on the Target Console and do Auto CTRNAND Transfer (you can do it in either SysNAND or EmuNAND). Don't skip NAND backup step!
    5. After Auto CTRNAND Transfer finished, dump ticket.db.
    6. Restore original NAND then inject the dumped ticket.db into the NAND.
    Done.

    Q: What is bad ticket?
    A: Tickets generated in ticket.db by installing unsigned CIA, including all piracies & all homebrews in CIA format.

    Q: Why this method but not FBI 2.X ticket deleting?
    A: FBI 2.X cannot delete leftovers of bad tickets - it does disable the bad tickets, but leftovers still can be browsed by ticket.db viewers e.g. GroovyCIA.

    It"s seems like a good way to get a clean ticket.db again, even tought I don"t have any console with weird or bad tickets since I didn"t installed more than System Apps Legit CIA"s (NVER, eShop, Friend List and more like that), but I find this can be very useful even so for a lot of people.

    So in theory we can get pirated fieldrunners and make it legit to transfer?

    No that"s not it, you can clean you ticket.db, but what you say is about transfer something that you don"t buy that"s impossible.

    That Nightly Siteā„¢
    That will remove tickets you're not using, but not exactly bad tickets.

    I think the 9.2.0 NAND Backup of Plailect's Guide has clean ticket.db
    Because my sysNAND is very clean (I though it ^^), all the FBI, HBL,... is on my emuNAND (SD Card).

    In that case it will be according to what ticket.db that Nand dump have, if it have a bad tickets or it if have a clean ticket.db.

    Why should I delete my bad tickets?
    (I think this question + its answer ought to be added in the OP post).

    no real reason. if nintendo was strict, they could check for the presence of them because it basically means piracy.
    nice to be clean, but nintendo is gentle so good :)

    @Lilligant Not totally bad since they are valid for download, but after all the ticket isn"t signed for your console so it isn"t legit for the console anyways.

    I still cannot get the point though.
    Isn't that just injecting a ticket.db from another console?
    If so, why not simply dump ticket.db from source console and inject it to target console?
    And it also removes my legally purchased/downloaded valid tickets as well, right?

    You can"t use the ticket.db from another console directly as you said.
