    Okay I currently have an old 3DS XL with arm9loaderhax and luma. I want to buy the upcoming new 3ds xl pikachu edition, and put arm9loaderhax and luma on it as well. My question is how would a system transfer work with custom firmware systems? Would everything be transferred? I'm guessing only the legit stuff would be transferred. Also I know that the old system formats itself after the transfer. But is that safe? And what happens if I do a nand restore after the transfer process on the old system? Will all the games and stuff be put back? Thanks for any help.

    Only transfers legit stuff, yes. But you can if you set up cfw on the pikachu 3ds, then you can pop your SD into the pikachu 3ds then reinstall all your game tickets, and all your saves and content will be there

    A format doesn't do anything to the source, its safe.

    A nand restore will restore games and nnid to the original console

    Everything I have heard has been that it's safe but you'll lose anything non-legit. That being said, I tried the exact same thing, got no error messages at all during the system transfer (took at least 8 hours, I have a ton of eShop purchases), rebooted my 3DS, and nothing ended up transferring. I ended up signing in with my NNID and manually redownloading everything from the eShop, I lost all my saves except for one that I saved beforehand with JKSM (Pokemon Moon). My friends list is empty, as well as my progress with the Mii Plaza. I would highly recommend backing up both your NANDs and the contents of your SD Cards before doing anything if you have stuff you care about and don't want to lose.

    Also forgot to mention, after you do what I told you, your systems will share an id0/id1 folder too. So that means you can plug it in to either console and continue where you left off.

    You'll have to install another ticket each time you install a new game though, to the other console not in use

    Did you turn it off mid-proccess or did it freeze?

    You must have done something out of the ordinary, because its a system transfer, this is how we originally got dsiware hax

    Never froze, didn't turn it off mid-process. Just went through the process as normal. It did make a ~30gig folder in my Nintendo 3DS folder though.

    I'm not really upset over it, but I'm planning on restoring the old 3DS just to grab my Mii Plaza puzzle pieces and friends list off of it.
