    i could be wrong but from I understand they check what's on your pokemon game to see if it has any haxmons and not whether or not your 3ds is hacked.

    Can't be too hard to hide that your console is hacked now.

    i'd delete any apps that aren't "normal" titles. such as the title manger or anything like that and then reinstall them later on. maybe get rid of any splash screens if you have any for your cfw.

    just hide any custom apps and make sure when it turns on everything looks normal. for example if you're using Luma3ds cfw then hide that it shows what kind of firmware version you're on because they will check for that apparently. instead of showing "sys 11.2-35 U" you want it to show "11.2-35 U"


    edit: well then don't ever pull up the keyboard lol

    If you are using a cart anyway just grab another system to use for regionals...

    If you have any custom apps that you want backed up then back those up and delete them from the system. you probably want to keep your SD because it's got your game saves on there. i think you'll be fine.

    he may not have another system and may not have any friends with one. plus the cart doesn't support using on multiple systems. it says save corrupted when you try.

    i've tried it. personally. the cart won't let you use it on multiple systems.


    also: if you're getting another system then just use your cart on that system and leave it unhacked for the tournament. that way you don't have to mess with your old system.

    Delete secure value before transferring then. But I can confirm on a legitimate card you can transfer it between systems without issue.

    I once gave my old unhacked 3ds to my ex gf and when I tried to play my omega ruby on my new unhacked 3ds it would not work. it said save corrupt and wanted me to delete it because the save was associated with the old 3ds. when I googled the issue i found out.

    can also confirm, if you use a cart the save data is on cart and is not linked to systems

    edit: typo fix

    Has nothing to do with the old 3ds. Now if you played the game in a system with some OLD cfw it used an old save encryption that systems didn't recognize. The 4.5 save encryption iirc. Been awhile. Had to do with Gateway/CFW available at the time being unable to decrypt newer saves.

    i think you could use your old system for the tournament as long as there's no tell tail signs that it's been hacked and as long as you don't have any obviously hacked pokemon on your game save.

    maybe that was my issue. i had a gateway at the time on the older system.
