    Hello all. Just curious if it's possible to dump and install apps like Mii Plaza on a different region 3ds? I have a JP N3DS and once gateway supports it it would be cool to install my NTSC Mii Plaza on it to keep my streetpass data and the likes.

    I know cearp is working on a region changer but there's no news on when that will ever be out so I'm not gonna hold my breath and wait on that.

    yes that is possible, your save might be a bit tricky to move over though

    Awesome thanks! I'm just really excited to use my N3DS soon and move my apps over without a system transfer.

    Sorry for the double post but just wanted to update on this. Been playing around and downloading different region apps such as Mii Plaza but they didn't work when I installed them. I just get a black screen/freeze. I tried a EUR and a JP version. JP Face Raiders worked fine. Activity Log didn't work either.

    I'm using 3DNUS to download them. The apps are usually the 6.0 firmware ones such as v5121 for the JPN Mii Plaza app. I'm installing these to EMUnand 9.4.0-21U. I tried using your UpdateCDN app to download them for firmwares like 9.0 but was only getting 40030 applets with that. I made sure they weren't any New3ds software that I was installing.

    Hard to say anything without knowing what setup you have configured to access emunand.

    hmm, for stuff i tested it worked, but i didn't try every single app, maybe some of them don't work... but i don't see why they wouldn't, if there was a region problem gw should have fixed that...
