    hey guys. So i bought one of those N3DS on black friday. Read online they come on v11.0
    Ive done multiple downgrades (non-NFIRM, old 3DS only) method in the past already, and this'll be the first time downgrading N3DS+Firm method, I have another console running on Luma3DS already.

    Console is still on its way, but i gave the guide a look and i noticed you have to purchase a DSIware game from the eshop, but it says that all 4 games have been pulled from the shop in all regions

    How do you downgrade if you dont have access to purchase one of these games?

    On US and EU Legends of Exidia is still there, so if you access one of those two eShops you must purchase that game. I don't know about JP shop...

    oh, didnt read the guide correctly. Youre right, Exidia was only removed from JP eShop
    Just downloaded it on my 11.2 GW Emunand (a9lh)
    yea i know, still using emunand on it

    I should be able to do the whole process with this emunand setup right
    Only reason im still using emunand on the source 3DS is cuz idk how to transfer my NNID onto an a9lh sysnand

    I think that you just need to backup your EmuNAND and flash it over your SysNAND and your NNID should be transfered (as long as you don't overwrite FIRM0/FIRM1 partition which contain A9LH you should be safe and you won't lose your hack)

    but the N3DS is gonna be my main console, once its hacked
    since im gonna do a system transfer onto the New3DS, i can just NOT transfer back and my NNID will stay on it right?
    or is there issues if i dont transfer back to source 3DS?

    can someone help me out? The 3DS came in the mail right now

    My source 3DS (old 3DS) is on 11.2 (Emunand)
    My Target 3DSs (new 3DS) is on 11.0

    In the a9lh guide, there is no package for o3ds 11.2 to 11.0
    only 11.2 to 10.4
    Am i supposed to use that one?

    is there something im missing or not reading right?

    If your target is New3DS on 11.0 (and you're not gonna update), you have to use the 11.0 to 10.4 for N3DS.

    thanks. last question.

    My emunand (source) is on a SD card.
    Obviously target uses mSD card, which i just found out about now, didnt know n3DS use mSD
    do i have to be using a mSD card on my source? because if so, thats a problem, since my NNID is on emunand, on the SD card

    edit:
    wait
    im doing o3DS to n3DS
    so i use: Old 3DS 11.2.0 to 10.4.0 right?

    check edit @OhBoy @cravas

    You can try putting the files from the SD to the mSD after the Transfer finished

    Edit: No u have to use n3ds 11.x to 10.4
    Otherwise i think it bricks

    I just wanted to confirm that this method works 100% on the black friday 3DSes, I used Four Swords however.

    When you finish the system transfer and the console tells you to move the card from source to target, you copy everything from one(Source) to the other(Target), on PC and then insert each other on their respective console.

    You should read the guide more carefully: Your source console is hacked, you aren't going to use any of the files needed to downgrade the source.
    You need to use the files to hack the Target (in your case, New3DS on a FW 11.0).

    Alright so, im good with everything you said now
    but I cant load DSIware from emunand
    Im getting an error has occured message
    Tried downloading a different DSIware from freeshop just to try it out, and i still get the error message
    It may be because this is a GW emunand, although I've already tried Installing all the CIAS in the guide from the troubleshooting section, and also holding L to get into EMUnand instead of using GW launcher

    Any way to fix this>?

    edit; just read that on another site that i have to install exidia in sysnand too, lemme try that

    exidia works now but i cant get the exploit to run
    not sure if ur supposed to copy into another directory other than TWL NAND
    basically its emunand thats giving me so much trouble
    Gonna be glad to be off of emunand finally once this is over

    so yea, cant get the exploit to run, copying the public.sav doesnt do anything

    Are you on the step where you check the exploit in the source system? If so what is going on?

    Does it crash when you try to load up the game, because I had this on mine using EmuNAND, but that's because DSiWare does not boot from EmuNAND. Moved installed DSiWare in SysNAND and it transferred over just fine.

    I just completed my A9LH setup going from N3DS to N3DS.
