    Follow the 3ds.guide and you'll be fine. Download the files as you go through. If you download everything first, to avoid misplacing files. Also, be sure to have a torrent client. I use utorrent. Also, also, read the guide a few time BEFORE you start. There are a lot of steps for this process.

    I did it! Yes! I had no problems whatsoever. I'm currently on 11.2 with arm9loaderhax+luma. :)

    Now comes the next part: system transfer. Both my old 3ds and new 3ds are on custom firmware now. I'm guessing I have to update both to 11.3 before the transfer will even work? I know only legit stuff will be transferred. Is this even safe to do? I'm backing up both systems nands just in case.

    It's safe. You don't need a backup. You don't need to update either if you use ctr-httpwn.

    I did the transfer. As expected only the legit stuff was sent over. So I had to reinstall most of my cias. I also restored the nand backup to the old source system. Everything seems to be working properly. :)

    Make sure you don't go online on both consoles at once, unless you format one of them (they'll have the same device id since you restored the pre-transfer NAND backup).

    I actually want to know what would happen if someone did that. I don't have any systems laying around to test that on since I scrapped my 2DS

    They get banned. I think it has happened before and been reported.

    Glad I didn't test it with my own systems. I thought it would happen and thus deleted my own NAND backup for my old3DS, in the risks that I would actually test it.
