    Hello,

    I have a N3DSXL that I hacked using the system transfer method. I used my wife's 2DS. It turns out that we now both share the same friend id. I believe the only way for us to get unique IDs is for one of us to restore to factory. I actually just tried this but was completely unable to backup Health&Safety, saying "slot0x25keyx not set up". So, I'm restoring my 3DS from a backup now, but in the future, is there a way to go about this? Am I doing something wrong?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You need the AES key database in files9. You can get it from section three of Plailect's guide.

    Yeah, I thought that was the issue, however even after installing the file to /files9/ I got the same error.

    Or I'm a total liar and it didn't transfer. Thanks, I'll try it again.

    That worked. I'm an idiot. Thanks!
