So I hard bricked my New 3DS while trying to downgrade it. (I think I used the Old 3DS Firmware and not the New 3DS Firmware, and gonna replace this with a New 3DS XL.)

So, to get everything including my save files and games I have on there, can't I generate an SDInfo.bin, use my 2DS on 9.2 to generate Xorpads, and padxor them? I tried this before with Decrypt9, and only got a file called s.

Also, can't I put these on the 2DS after that's done and then use System Transfer when I get the New 3DS XL?

Thanks.

Actually I'm gonna try something.

  1. Follow this. (Part 1, doing a manual NAND Dump).
  2. Follow this. (Part 2, doing a manual NAND Dump).
  3. Instead of soldering to the 3DS XL point, I solder here.
  4. Follow this. (Doing a Manual System Transfer).
  5. When I get to the part about doing stuff on the Target System, I wait for my replacement New 3DS XL to come back. (Gonna replace this).
  6. When I'm done I can enjoy the system again.
Lesson learned, don't mix up the 9.2 CIAs with Old 3DS and New 3DS, or even better wait for the safe updating method for the New 3DS to come out.

I don't have any experience in soldering whatsoever so I will say if this works or not for me.

i think this is the 2nd time i have seen you give 100% wrong advice.
it's nice to try to help but please only do so unless you are sure of yourself...
i am pretty sure of myself. it's mere coincidence that i've failed twice in a row now :(
