    So I used the downgrade check homebrew (even though I never have downgraded) to check out my installed system titles, and I came across something called "NGWord bad word list CFA". I never had realized that the 3ds warns you about using swear words and in some cases flat-out blocks you from using them - probably because I'm normal and have no reason for using swears on my 3ds! But nonetheless, I tried swearing at some fellow street-passers and sure enough, blocked! But it's a pretty simple fix, however, this was only tested on an OLD 3DS XL, and it could be/probably is different from the New 3DS, so find out the title ID using the downgrade check homebrew, then open the title_log using notepad++ and press CTRL+F, and search for the name I told you earlier. Anyway, all you must do is run the NAND you want to patch this in, and launch FBI. Switch the destination to NAND and change the mode to delete title. Now search for the following title ID: 000400db00010302. Delete it. Congratulations, you are now completely free to swear all you desire!

    TIP: It's found in the N/A section.

    BE WARNED!!! Who's to say I'm not LYING and trying to get you to uninstall something important? Well I'm not. But I could be! Be careful what you uninstall from your NAND! Make a backup! Hell, download what you're deleting from the CDN using 3DNUS (title ID: 000400db00010302, version 08192 for OLD 3DS XL).

    EDIT: It seems that some titles require this list to launch or run properly, like Tomodachi
    life. Before doing this, you should grab a backup from the CDN using 3DNUS (thanks AnalogMan!).

    Happy swearing,
    Logan Pockrus

    Can you still access the eShop after deleting this title?

    If you do this in a 10.6 NAND environment (like a 10.6 emuNAND) then yes! Otherwise, no (because you need to be on the latest firmware version, obviously).

    Really, when you delete this particular thing from your NAND, absolutely nothing noticeable happens at first. All this is is a list of swear words that, when entered, the 3ds says "Hey man, you can't say that!" so when deleted you're free to speak freely as that list is now gone.

    But, the particular title ID I gave is for the OLD 3DS XL (Region = U), so take that as you will (if you're not using that model or region I recommend you use downgrade_check to create a list of your installed titles, then press CTRL+F in the created "title_log" and search - no quotation marks - "NGWord bad word list CFA").

    Oh, okay. I did some testing before starting this thread, and everything seemed okay. But, things like this are (part of) the reason I issued that warning in the OP.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I also made an edit in the OP just now warning that this breaks some titles. But if you have a backup you could just re-install it, and problem solved!

    No one understands Nintenfolk and their dev units...
    But really, I think using that option you can use an inappropriate name by the looks of it. But I know nothing of dev units.

    actually north korea. please send help
    How about replacing the title with an empty word list instead of removing it entirely? Maybe that'd prevent certain games from crashing?

    That's what the post in my link does, but we're having trouble re-compiling system CIAs with our current tools. Our tools try rebuilding with ExeFS and ExHeader but this system CIA has neither. The result is it breaks system updates and eShop access.

    Or just do what I do:

    Use the Foreign Language letters to curse instead. They don't check that.

    DONE and with no potential NAND damage or bricking....

    It's also less impressive and satisfying.

    I've managed to do this a few months ago (although I was after unlocking the official save backup feature, which is in another cia, it also applies to NGWord and NZ network list): https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-do-you-recompile-a-cia-of-a-system-data-archive.413366/

    Good luck!!
