    Dude....
    Chill.The.Fuck.Out.

    I did not hold a gun to anyones head and say "DO THIS IT WILL WORK!"
    I said I did this differently, it worked for me, here's what I did so you can look at it.

    I forgot how bent out of shape people get on here when you try to actually help instead of just repeating the same old "follow the god guide.... it will lead you to enlightenment".

    I'm sorry for trying to shoot your idea down (it's a good idea, though), but people have followed outdated guides and have bricked before because the methods to do these things have become outdated or they can't follow instructions. I'm trying to prevent OP from bricking their device from following a guide that hasn't been touched in 6 months. But if there is a problem with the current guide, it needs to be brought to @Plailect's attention so that it can be fixed.

    I am also interested in changing my N3DS from (11.1.0-34J) to a (U) version.

    I have followed the guide by @Plailect to install arm9loaderhax and Luma3DS.
    I then tried to follow the Region Changing guide but get stuck at Section III - CTRTransfer Part 12-13.
    My DS won't boot up the sysNAND it just turns off, I know this means that there is an error with the sysNAND.
    I can restore it with a back up of my 11.1.0-34J sysNAND and it works fine.

    Has anyone followed the new guide successfully?

    changing the region is easy, i do not believe getting the eshop to work is possible though as far as i know no one has ever actually posted proof just a few people saying it's possible.
    i've region changed 7 3DS's all brand new never been turned on before changing their regions and never been able to get any of them to work on eshop following every different tutorial and suggestion step for step.

    I know emunand isnt very popular (anymore) but I've had great luck installing a USA emunand via ctr transfer on my JPN N3DS. Haven't had any issues so far and I can switch regions just by rebooting.

    This was an issue with an earlier GodMode9 version, but was recently fixed. Replace your GM9 with the current release.

    After creating the secureinfo_C file, the region changed sysnand booted but as expected, eShop was not working.
    My new 3DS doesn't even have any demo videos attached to the account.

    PS: I backed up the eshop and the unknown folder of the ticket.bak
    But I have not been able to reinstall the tickets by the FBI later, the FBI does not recognize them as tickets

    EDIT: I managed to do that by backuping tickets in decrypt9

    SecureInfo_C already exists and the first data of 00000100 is 01 for USA
    I think I made everything right :unsure:

    EDIT I just forgoten to change the region in profile settings it's all ok now, but eshop doesn't work

    I just hope that one day the region change could include a work around with eShop.
