    So it's been mentioned and done before, but I've see no definitive guide on how to do a full sysNAND to sysNAND System Transfer by taking advantage of NTR CFW's firmware spoofing mechanisms. After asking questions and researching some threads that were pointed out to me, I wanted to post the full steps I took to get my Old 3DS sysNAND properly transferred to my New 3DS. Theres a Q/A section below the guide, and I can add to it if more people ask.

    Also, now that Ninjhax 2.0 has been released, I'm sure it won't be long before we can do this kind of operation between systems that are on >9.6 - But I won't get ahead of myself.

    This is my first go at a guide and made it as complete as I could - So here we go!

    Requirements
    1. Both systems sysNAND on version 9.0-9.2
    2. Project Pokemon for O3DS
    3. NTR CFW on N3DS
    4. NTR Debugger

    ***DISCLAIMER***
    I highly recommend taking sysNAND backups of both units before doing this. I'd also recommend restoring them over your current NAND with the backup to ensure you have a good copy. If you continue you are doing so on your own and I take no responsibility if something goes wrong in the transfer or your system(s) become bricked.

    Procedure
    1. If you had unlinked NAND's, you must restore your previous NAND to your system.
    • You could transfer emuNAND to a target sysNAND, but I would recommend a clean NAND with no invalid/custom CIA's installed as they could brick the target system.

    2. Run Project Pokemon firmware spoof on your O3DS

    2. Run NTR Mode on your N3DS
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    3. Start the NTR Debugger on your N3DS
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    4.Verify both systems can log into the eShop and you do not get a system update prompt. If you get the update prompt, you are not running NTR or the Project Pokemon spoofs corrently on your units. Read above to fix.
    • Note: If you're having trouble with the NTR/Project Pokemon programs, please read through and use those threads in your troubleshooting. There's no need to fill this guide with questions that may have already been answered in their respective places.
    5. Once both units can reach the eShop correctly, enter System Settings and go through with the System Transfer as you normally would.

    I performed a local wireless transfer, transferring all of my SD card data over wireless (took forever), but can vouch it worked without issue. If you want a speedier transfer, you can do a local copy of your SD card data on your computer.

    Question/Answer:
    Q:
    "Why not just transfer your O3DS emuNAND to your N3DS emuNAND?"
    A: You can, and there is a simpler method using the MultiPatcher CIA. I however wanted to have a sysNAND backup of my N3DS with my legitimate NNID and purchases. This way if my emuNAND for whatever reason gets royally F'd, I won't lose my NNID along with my purchases and can restore properly to start from square one.

    If you're intersted in doing an emuNAND to emuNAND transfer, look here: http://www.maxconsole.com/maxcon_fo...m-Transfer-Old-3ds-to-New-3ds-Gateway-Emunand

    Q: Can't I just use the MuliPatcher to do this on sysNAND?
    A: No. MultiPatcher is an invalid (non-legitimate eShop purchased) CIA and could cause a bricked system during the transfer to sysNAND. In emuNAND however, this is okay.

    Q: What if one of my systems is already on the latest sysNAND?
    A: Start the sysTransfer like normal on that system from system settings. Follow the steps for NTR or Project Pokemon on the exploitable system.

    For system nand it's easiest to use project pokemon for the o3ds since it avoids unassigned cia files on the nand but on the n3ds NTR all the way for system nand

    Oh and it's not stealing my thunder, the more people that help others the less full my inbox is

    Yeah, NTR doesn't work for O3DS with CN - It crashed on me a few times and I couldn't understand why until I saw the loadcode.projectpokemon.org link. Then it all made sense haha.

    Well it might, you just need to have the correct offsets since the ones you where most likely using was for the n3ds

    I have to ask is it possible for me to transfer my old sysNAND 10.2 to an old emuNAND 10.2 and vice versa? I'll be using rxTools as my emuNAND if that does help.

    I'm not sure what you mean "old". If your referring to the same 10.2 console, then a sysNAND restore is what you want, then create a new emuNAND. If they are seperate consoles and you're on 10.2 why not upgrade to 10.3 and do a normal systransfer? I don't know what has been done for 9.6+ firmware's though and am honestly not going to bother with 10.3 support coming soon from gateway.

    It will, but you need to spoof the eShop in a different way now for your sysNAND and emuNAND. I haven't touched my console in a couple of months, and with the news of 10.3 support coming, I'm just going to wait on updating this guide since everything is going to change once again.

    well... system transfer is not possible i change the nver and the cver with pasta and no luck I could enter the eshop but on system trasnfer i got and error so since downgrading is easy i update both 3dss to 10.3 did a system trasnfer and downgrade both again, so easy. It took me 2 hs cause the sd transfer on the pc but is the best solution since nintendo hasn't updated the new firmware. both consoles working with cfw and gateway :D:D:D:D:D:D

    So I gather this isn't working anymore without some tinkering, right @Maximilious? My n3dsxl will probably arrive after 10.4 drops, so this'd be quite useful to me.
