Hi, few days ago i managed to get some 3ds and 2ds consoles at very reasonable prices, the 2ds is already with cfw(soundhax) and the 3ds(plain old) is american(U), at version 1.0.0-0, no internet gateway or any other way to install cfw, leaving me with only flashcards or hardmode, i'm unable to find a r4 like device here where i live, so, hardmode is the only way to get out of this situation.

After all the soldering work and some sd card adapter losses(that thin slider), i finished and the result is something like:

SD Card Adapter:

Old 3DS Motherboard(i'll not show the CLK soldering 'cause i don't want to disassemble all over again, but i assure you, it's pretty solid and well fixed):

images bellow

The Orange and Green wires, are changed, there's a joint where i solder all the wires again, and both green and orange and swapped.

I've made all the tests before proceed, tried to turn on the console while not pluged with the fake SD Card onto the Card Reader, and worked fine, it turns on normal, and jumps into the blue screen when pluged onto the Card Reader. The problem is when i try to connect the Card Reader into the computer, a drive is installed automaticaly and then shows "Transcend(No Drive Letter)" as device for a while and then "F:" is shown, after a while, another device comes up, and minutes after, all disapear. Also the win32imageDisk doesn't recognize none of the drivers when promped.

This is the Card Reader i'm using:

Transcend(TS-RDF8K)

images bellow

It's the improved version of the one used in this tutorial: tutorial-noob-friendly-nand-dumping-2ds-3ds-3ds-xl-n3ds-n3ds-xl (Transcend P8 TS-RDP8K )

If anybody can help me, i'll appreciate, and thanks in advance.

Not really a solution to the hardmod problem, but have you looked into updating your 3DS and just doing this method?

You say you don't have access to an internet gateway, do you mean no way to connect the 3DS's to the internet? Because if that is the case then a system transfer won't do any good.

Hi, and thanks for the reply, i meant browser :/, the browser version, due to it's version i'm unable to use any methods that require a browser version above 0. And if i update the 3ds nothing will change, 'cause i'll only have a 3ds with the most recent update, or if i try with a cart update the 3ds version will change but the browser will still unchanged.

As long as both devices are the same region it will work. You can update and use the method I posted.

I have a 2DS(Old with CFW Sys 11.3.0-36U, originaly 11.3.0-36E), but i wanted to keep a backup of the stock firmware of this 3DS(1.0.0-0U), that's why i don't want to do a system transfer. And also, 'cause i'm unable to upgrade the sd card for my 2DS, after copying all the files from one SD(old) to the ther SD(new) the 2DS blue light turns on just for a second, and i already have all the wires soldered into this 3ds.
