    I have N3DS XL with A9LH, and when I search for region change, most of posts only wrote about USA, EUR and JPN, but I saw a post that it is able to change region to KOR by changing region part of secureinfo_A as 05, but I'm kinda nervous if this will brick my 3ds. Is this a right way to change region as KOR?

    I personally don't know much about region changing but if you are nervous either YOLO it or look for a easier way.


    Or just don't do it

    I don't think that there are public ctr images for kor.

    You need to install a Korean OS first (which you can download with 3DNUS's full system download feature, and install with SysUpdater or any other cia manager; removing some applications from the one you have now - like 3ds camera, 3ds sound, face raiders etc - may be needed to free enough space)

    Yes, 05 is correct: https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Nandrw/sys/SecureInfo_A


    That's why you make nand backups first...

    I'm interested to converting my 3ds to a Taiwan copy, but there seems there's no ctr image for that too

    as above: download a Taiwanese update pack, install it, then edit secureinfo region to 06

    And also delete the extra apps.
    Also unlikely to have eshop access, if I'm
    Not mistaken

    Yeah I'm sure it is, unless Nintendo added a whole region of fw for the sakes of like of 4 people who would be allowed to own a 3ds

    And for all the 17 games which got ported, including- pokemon kim, pokemon jong (sun&moon), shovel man (not to influence the poor koreans by showing them a knight accidentally) and super smashing bro- kim jong awakes

    Try downloading the files from NUS.
    Also you should do this with CFW (make a backup before and keep it in a safe place), you"ll need to use EmuNand or RedNand if you use that. You can do it in the System Nand but only if you have Arm9LoaderHax.

    You should write the "Title ID" and version of the file that you want
