    I just purchased a N3DS XL with 11.1 firmware. Going to use A9LH+Luma on it but have a few questions.

    •Possible to keep my current NAND(with all my games+saves) from my O3DS XL?

    •Should I do the

    "DSiWare and a second 3DS (which already has CFW)" method?

    or the

    "DSiWare, one of four listed games, and a homebrew launcher entrypoint (11.0.0 and 11.1.0 only)" method?

    The 4 listed games have been pulled from the eShop - so unless you already have them on your N3ds...

    So you'll need a cfw'd 3ds or a hardmod.

    And while following the guide when downgrading the nfirms - the stock nfirms will be backed up - but you should also see the option to backup the full nand. This backup will take a while.

    I think [as long as you don't need to system format] you can take a quicker backup after 9.2 downgrade that will work with your current titles/saves

    I have an O3DS with A9LH+Luma but it also doesn't have DSiWare.

    So follow the 2nd 3ds with cfw one.

    Essentially what it'll have you do is download a dsiware that is still in the eShop then hack it to become 1 of the 4 dsiwarehax titles which can then be given a haxed save and transfered
