    Hello guys, firstly i just want to say that i do know that it is impossible to downgrade your system if it's above 10.7...
    But i do already own a 2DS that is firmware 9.2 on SysNAND and 11.0.0-33E in EmuNAND..

    The 2DS i'm going to buy is the new bundle that will soon be released.. It's
    "Nintendo 2DS + Pokémon Sun (pre-installed)"

    I have no idea which firmware it is going to be when it's released, but i'm guessing over 10.7 since it's all new...

    But my question is, and i THINK i may have read it somewhere in this forum, but is it possible to somehow "transfer" the system files that i have in my 2DS that has CFW, to downgrade and make the new 2DS i'm going to buy firmware 9.2 sysNAND?? :)

    i have not even started hacking my o3DS but did a lot of reading, i've read you must have one 3DS/2DS running cfw, do system transfer and do downgrade via dsiware hack something..and mentioned one game which was Fieldrunners must be installed on CFW3DS/2DS, must be a legit game as well or it wont work..anyway, someone here more knowledgeable can say something..also, other method you have is hardmod..

    CFW is not enough, it has to be A9LH because you need to transfer your updated sysnand

    You don't have to worry. It's pretty straight forward. Though be cautious on the firmware that you're gonna use. Make sure it's the right region since I believe the latest SysDowngrader provided by the guide doesn't do checks(unlike the old PlaiSysupdater) if you're flashing the wrong region. I thought I bricked a brand new N3DS yesterday because I accidentally flashed a 9.2 US firmware to an 10.7 EUR console, it doesnt boot up, only blue led is on. Good thing recovery mode works and I have a spare CFW'ed EUR console with me so I still managed to install Luma & A9LH.

    Well, technicly its enough to just have cfw but after transfer you have no way to recover CFW to your old3ds.

    Should i buy the game inside the sysNAND or emuNAND?

    I don't think i have A9LH, i have an old CFW (rxTools) i really want to change to Luma but i'm afraid that i might mess something up :(

    Hmmm now when i think about it.. Can't someone else just upload their backup file with different system and region so everyone can use them?
    For instance they backup their 3DS files that they got when using the DSiWare Downgrade guide and is EUR region..

    I read somewhere that It should be emunand(the legit purchased one) and afterwards, you have to have the same copy on sysnand(it doesnt matter if it's legit or hacked) and you need to use GodMode9 to inject the save since FBI doesnt have access to Emunand's TWL NAND. But that was way back on the old guide so take it with a grain of salt. I suggest switch to A9lh first, it's not that hard.

    what? really? LOL i must have misread the countless threads i opened..good to know..im actually planning to downgrade my other 3DS.. how much is the game on EUR? what will happen to the "old" 3DS after you system transfer? is it still hacked or do i have to go thru the process of downgrading etc?

    I actually did a system transfer with updated emunand and it was successful and i downgraded to 9.2. You don't need a9lh, just an emunand.
