    Nope, it won't work. First of all, you have to hack the new system.

    What I'd do in this case would be:

    - Get the new system

    - Get A9LH (https://3ds.guide)

    - Manually back up all data and restore it to the new system (I'm not sure if System Transfer would work with non-legit titles)

    I think system transfer moves all games, including CIA games, if both systems are running A9LH. Could be wrong, though.

    Not so sure about that. It only moves legit titles iirc. I think ppl tried it before.
