    A while ago I let my sister use my 3DS, and during that time she named herself on TWL_FIRM with her name obviously. I want to change the name but there is no option to do so, only message and birthday. I formatted my 3DS once and the data was still there.

    I have a 2DS that uses A9LH + Luma

    If this is a noob question I apologize as I think this is a decent question.

    Yes I tried to use JK Save Manager, TWL_FIRM didn't appear.

    Already have, my 3DS Mode name is Max L., while my TWL_FIRM name is Trinity. I will try changing it again when I get to my home.

    Can't you use the Config app in the leaked sdk to change the 3DS name?

    Thank you for trying to help, but there are a few problems.

    1. I don't know where to get the leaked sdk

    2. I'm trying to change the name that displays in DS Mode, not the name of my 3DS. I can change my 3DS name fine, but there is no option to change the DS Mode name.

    Though of the sdk allows you to change your DS Mode name, I at least want a lead to where I can get the sdk since we can't link it.

    Uh.... you can change your name from system settings? Go to Other Settings -> Profile -> DS Profile and there you have it

    Already tried that, I only get the option to edit the Message and the Birthday on mine. No option to edit the name. I'll show you a sceenshot when I can.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    You can probably find it on that ISO site, obviously. ;)

    If you have a flashcard, you can run firmware.nds on it, and you can set the name and message for the DS Profile.

    I think that changing the 3DS name using the leaked sdk also changes the DS Profile name... lemme test

    EDIT:Nope

    Try to change your name to something else and then back to the name you want.

    I do have an R4, could you link the nds here or through PM? Or do I need to go to that ISO site?

    It's at that ISO site. Just search for firmware.nds.
