    I have recently found a seller of a used Japanese new 3ds for a good price (~$140). I found out he has an exploitable firmware on it, but looking around here I gbatemp I can hardly seem to find any info on japanese n3dses running ntsc emunands. If I could get any help that would be great. If it is useful, my bother has a sky3ds that I could use as a japanese copy of cubic ninja.

    Thanks guys!

    Your guy to ask is @Ronhero ;)
    But maybe other ppl will also be able to give some useful input.

    Just on a side note, forget the "ntsc" term. It's Jap/Eur/US consoles.

    I don't think NTSC has anything to do with handheld consoles.

    Do you mean American emunand?? NTSC is a type of tv signal used both in America and Japan and various other countries IE an American Wiiu and a Japanese Wiiu are both NTSC

    lmao sorry about that; the last time I've worked with any homebrew was gamecube and wii, so that was what I knew. I'll be using US from now on

    NTSC I believe had to do with tube TV's. Now that all tv's are digital I don't think you'll be seeing PAL and NTSC any more.

    Even though analog tv is a thing of the past it's still a standard in video games consoles. Also dvd are governed by the same but use numbers for regions

    Region swapping is fairly simple so long as you can run homebrew. Install titles of other region -> install secureinfo_a of other region -> remove titles of old region.
    I did it on SysNAND, though that was before there was EmuNAND without Gateway.

    Just know that if you region swap a N3DS you'll probably lose eShop access for good (I mean, you could switch it back, but on the new region) though if you're using CFW for things you're unlikely to care.

    That's what ronhero was telling me in our PMs. I assume "that iso site" has the stuff I need? and yeah I really don't care much about eshop access, so long as I can update things with cias. I prefer physical media anyways.

    He's mainly referring to EMUNAND, he may likely want to remain on 9.1.0-20J, but run a 9.5 US EMUNAND. Not sure how it would be done though, personally.

    The process on EmuNAND is the exact same in terms of what needs to be done, I was just stating I did it on SysNAND.

    You can do it on emunand or system nand or both.

    Just install all the 9.2 files then swap the sec a file then delete the old ones

    I'll probably just do it on the emunand then, idk if I mess that up there's a smaller chance of bricking my new $140 device

    If I use CakesFW can I make the system autoboot to the emunand then? Basically have my system act like a US one but still have the jap files on there?
