    So I did a full board swap for my Super Famicom 3DS that came today.

    A full US Snes special 3DS! The board swap also meant that I got to keep my A9LH (Great since the Super Famicom edition comes with 11.0)

    Note to anyone doing board swaps. Be very very VERY careful with the black and white ribbon cable on top. It's very flimsy and is the digitiser (Controls touch input)

    Well The system comes with 11.0, so no access to that type of homebrew to downgrade/overwrite system firmware.

    Also from what I've read a lot of the region swapping ends incomplete. Plus I can just region swap the old (black) 3ds if I ever desire to.

    I also didn't want to setup a hard mod when the NAND points are on the underside of the board for N3DS models

    To be honest I was confused about the whole DSiware downgrade since it only worked for 11.0/11.1, but you needed 11.2 to access the eShop

    the purchase is on another console that you data transfer to the 11.0/11.1 console.

    I think that there isn"t any exploitable DSiWare game currently avaliable for purchase in the Japan eShop.
    @Mr.ButtButt Do you use an Original 3DS or a New 3DS?

    Hell
    from the guide,,, (you would still have to have some jpn console already to do the dsiware downgrade, or access the eshop yourself)

    you'd be correct. I didn't know there was a difference for region swapping..

    Yeah, you can just use Sudoku hacks with basically any dsiware game that fits the prerequisites, swap out the game & save for Sudoku so long as it meets a few requirements and it transfers fine

    Ah, I see people are now injecting Sudoku, guess that now that there aren"t that much titles that are exploitable people go to do this, well I knew of this but not that it started being used by the community for downgarde (I haven"t checked a lot of thigns in general altely because of the time I have).

    If you were to sell these "USA" versions you'd actually have a good market, and you're adding value to the system unlike scalpers.
