    Hey guys! I plan to buy New 3ds JP version. But I don't know if I can change it into English or not. Please help. I know that New 3DS already had English version for EU & AU but the price...
    I wanna change from my 3DS to this but still try to find the solution for this

    It's complicated to change it. You need old 3ds as a donor

    you don't need an old3ds as a donor :) any 3ds is ok

    there are some guides on here. if you buy a hackable n3ds (fw 9.2 or below), and hack it to change the region, you will not have working eshop it seems.

    I got sky3ds and I know how to do RegionFour on my O3ds but for N3DS JP, I don't know how to set up system into English. Could you link the guide that you mention for me?

    unless you can guarantee the n3ds you buy will have 9.2 or below, you cannot do this.

    you should be able to find if you search for a guide, i will look ater if you cannot find yourself though

    I saw a fix for the eShop access on another thread.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-region-change-tutorial-easy-way.386207/
    Pretty complicated though and requires juggling several SD cards with different emuNANDs on them. (easy way my ass! I couldn't even make sense of the instructions)

    I can't find the solution for this. Too complicated. For regionFour is ok but change language seems like difficult to do :( I really like this N3DS

    huh, that is based off a tutorial my friend made, that he online translated for me into english, and that i posted here months ago.
    i'm glad it has been rewritten and confirmed working :) even yifanlu said it should not seem possible i think, but good it works
