    hello gbatemp

    will it work to backup firmware from n3ds and use it on a diffrent n3ds ?


    to apply 9.2 or any FW ver. from one console to another ??

    Good question, you're probably the first person to think of that idea.

    No, every 3DS's NAND (where the firmware/OS is stored) is unique to each unit, and you can't use it on any other 3DS.

    Fortunately, no. This is good because it is another way to make piracy more difficult. Lulz

    Why, oh why, our moderator overlords, is there not a NO CIA INSTALL 9.3 AND ABOVE disclaimer in this section of the forums, like homebrew and emulators does?

    Also Even with decrypted nand partitions, I dont think they can be swapped. So no in any case.

    It's called one of your best friends owns a flashcart website.

    You really think I'd spend $360 on a few made-in-china flashcarts? Sure.

    Yeah, apparently there's this little text input box with a picture of a detectives magnifying glass next to it in the top right hand of every single GBATemp user evers' screen.

    I've heard you can even type " *search query here* site:gbatemp.net " into google aswell! Technology these days, huh?

    It's kind of like the 'chicken or the egg, which came first?' problem i guess.

    The noobs can't learn how to use search engines because they can't use a search engine to search on how to use a search engine in the first place.

    They will be forever destined to this temporal paradox, starting a duplicate√ó9999999999 thread is the only way to harness the free CIA gamez

    Always the problem when there's a "free solution", I'll admit i've created a thread or 2, just to point me in the right direction though

    A few weeks ago I had trouble finding out about sysupdater, as I didn't know it existed and wanted to update to 9.2 but "searching" resulted in outdated information, sometimes knowing the names and terminology is the problem
