    Hey Guys, A friend of mine bricked his N3DS by deleting a SystemTitle from NAND.
    He bought a new one and I modified his NAND Dump of his New N3DS with stuff of his Old3DS (he made a NAND Dump of his o3DS but no one of his old, bricked N3DS).
    I want to inject the NAND to his new N3DS but for this, I need a NAND Mod.
    I already made a NAND Mod on my own o3DS but I need a Tutorial for the N3DS.
    Anyone who has a Tutorial for it?

    @Apache Thunder said it will work
    (with modified moveable.sed and fixed data-folder)

    It's a original Dump of the new N3DS with modified moveable.sed and data-folder.
    We want to do it to use all the saves and such that were used on the old bricked N3DS

    looks not that easy as the 3DS XL thing. Do I really need to solder on the other side of the mainboard? o.o
    And it looks a bit hard.
    Is there any other Tutorial with a better explaination for this ? ._.

    Indeed. A step-by-step guide for N3DS would be more than welcome.

    Absolutly.
    The N3DS looks difficult. on the o3DS XL it was simple, but on the N3DS ...

    to inject the modded nand you just need to boot into the gateway menu via CN/oot, have the fixed nand file named NAND.BIN on the SD card, and hold UP while choosing "downgrade".....but this will be a one shot test, if anything is wrong you will be bricked again and need a nand mod to fix it

    PS make a nand dump of the new console now

    Have made a NAND Dump of the New COnsole already.
    But without a Tutorial for a N3DS NAND Mod, it's a bit... risky?
    Has anyone tried NAND-Backup restoring with Gateway already?

    yeah it works fine aslong as the nand your flashing is correct.....if your feeling confident you have rebuilt fine you should be ok to just restore and not need to do any soldering

    hmm... @Apache Thunder told me what I've todo and resent me the modified files (moveable.sed, data-folder).
    I've modified and rebuilt the NAND with his bat.
    the bat file

    this should work, i guess?

    His Tutorial

    you should be good to go then....but just be prepared to have to do a nand mod......but if everything goes well you will be fine and not have to worry about it.....just make another nand backup to make 100% sure you are 100% covered

    although obviously having access to a gateway card would of gave you extra piece of mind as you could of tested the nand dump in emunand before flashing to sysnand

    but as long as you/he has a nand backup this time and are able to install 4 wires your pretty safe

    sadly I don't know anyone near me who has a gateway.
    I'll make a second NAND Dump soon (Gateway dump should be fine?) and try to restore the modified NAND with Gateway Launcher.
    Which version shall I use? the newest?

    yeah just use the latest, and make sure the fixed file is name NAND.BIN and on the root of the SD card (you will need to rename/move the new sysnand backup)
