    Just bought a New 3ds XL. It's on 11.4U. I have O3ds XL which is on B9S 11.4E & I don't have any required DS game to do this https://3ds.guide/installing-boot9strap-(dsiware). I can change the region of my O3ds XL to US.


    So my basic questions are:

    1. Will O3DS XL work to that tutorial?
    2. Can I restore my O3DS XL to it's original European Firmware?
    3. Can I get legit .cia DS game from rom sites online?

    no.

    It needs to be purchased from the eShop. This is because Nintendo transfers purchased titles when doing a system transfer.

    there's no working around purchasing a game from the eShop if you choose the DSiware method. other methods involve hardware or eventual ntrboothax.

    Quote 3ds guide :After this process, only New 3DSs which have never accessed the eShop before and any Old 3DSs will be able to access the eShop after creating a new NNID on their new region. Region changed New 3DSs that have already accessed the eShop on their original region cannot create a new NNID and access the eShop on their new region!

    One last thing. If I use O3ds XL to do system transfer to New 3ds XL will it work? Or do I need another N3ds XL to do the thing?

    i don't see why it would not work since it's an old 3ds and it thinks your switching to the new model
