    Hello;

    As the new guide doe snot mention, I'm just wondering if both system must be on the same firmware version in order to system transfer one to another, i remember that it used to be like that, is it still the same? O;

    Both 3ds need to be on the latest firmware?

    Sadly, Yes. Both 3DS's have to be at the current firmware.

    Really? Last time i tried a DSI downgrade, I had to be on the recent firmware. Although, that was about 5 months ago...

    No, they aren't, a week ago I did a system transfer from a 11.2 to a 11.0 system, you just need to run ctr-httpw before,

    You can now use https://github.com/yellows8/ctr-httpwn in the stock console with homebrew access to transfer while the stock console being on <11.2

    A homebrew by yellows8 that makes your 3DS access to online functions that require the console to be on the latest version. Like the eShop or the System Transfer.

    actually, that's why i asked, since the guide before stated that they needed to be on the same version, however, now it doe snot said that anymore, and it gives u the ctr option, the last 11 downgraded that i did had to be the same version, but now there's the new option with ctr.

    While it isn't essential that both systems be fully updated, they should both be on the same NATIVE_FIRM version.

    So for the sake of simplicity; 10.x-10.x, 11.x-11.x etc...
