    Hi Guys,

    I have an o3DS on 11.1.0.34U and just recieved my n3DS on 9.9.0-26U. Now that I have read Plailects guide, I want to make sure I understand the process to setup my n3DS and transfer the data from my o3DS.

    Here is my understanding so far:
    1) Downgrade the n3DS to 9.2 using sysDowngrader and the 9.2 n3DS firmware from Plailect site
    2) Backup my nand using decrypt9 and a homebrew entry point (I currently have freakyhax on 11.1)
    3) According to guide I skip step 2 and go into installin A9LH/Luma3DS, then install FBI/HBL after injecting hs.app (finally restoring hs.app)

    Questions / Possible Next Steps:
    1) After this is complete can I go ahead and update to 11.1 (I think yes, but better ask)
    2) Should I then do a system format at this point? Will this keep FBI?
    3) System transfer?

    I basically want to sell my o3DS but I have purchases/subscriptions(pokemon bank) that I want transferred to my n3DS.

    Sorry if any of these questions are newbish.

    Thanks for any help!

    Thx for the help, will skip 2.

    Last question, is the sd less version of a9lh the one used in the guide? I can't seem to find that info on the github page.

    No, the SD-less version isn't officially released (apparently it has problems playing DS games). If you want to update your a9lh then visit https://gbatemp.net/threads/a9lh-can-now-boot-without-sd-card.432593/ for the files and use https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Updating-A9LH as a guide on how to update.

    If sysdowngrader crashes half way through install, then I need to change the other app payload for 9.2.0-20U from smealum website right? Reason I ask is I can't access homebrew anymore after the crash.

    Also step 10 states the following:
    Clear Home Menu's extdata by navigating to /Nintendo 3DS/(32 Character ID)/(32 Character ID)/extdata/00000000/ on your SD card...

    Is this if it crashes?? On second try after replacing otherapp.bin for 9.2.0-20U, I got it installed successfully and rebooted all on its own.

    Am I on to the nand dump? Basically are steps 4-12 just precautionary? thx for ur help!

    EDIT: Success!!!
