    I have a JP region N3DS, and I would like to swap regions so that I have the console in English. I have a US region N3DS XL that is on CFW and works great. My question is, could I share a Secureinfo_A between the two consoles? (Share the entire secure info including serial?).

    I assume I'd have to keep the consoles from going online at the same time most likely, although going online from the same IP might not be as big of a deal?

    Is there a risk of brick/ban this way?

    So even if I never go online with both devices and change serials, I risk a ban this way?
    Got it, unfortunate but thank you! Was hoping I could do this to use both devices on eShop.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure you can't access eShop on region-changed N3DS

    Right, but for some reason I was hoping doing this would work! I guess I'm out of luck.

    A proper secure info a that has never been online should bypass the n3ds only issue.

    That's where my confusion comes in, my N3DS has been online for a game update I believe but I've never used the eShop application. I assume this still means I have been online though.

    Does this mean even if I modify the N3DS's serial to match the N3DS XL, would I still risk a ban? They would also be on the same IP and not online at the same time.

    Well you could find donor secure_info a from that iso site and according to @vb_encryption_vb it should be good as long as it hasn't been online (which those donor ones have not been)

    The issue there would be that multiple would use these donor files, and that would pose an issue. It would be similar to using my own multiple times I believe.

    There is far more to it as well. @Ronhero has done it before, you need to use NTR debug as well to change some things around. Look for his posting about it.

    Seems like he unfortunately has not been active in months, and never got around to posting his guide from what I can see. I'll continue to dig through posts and see what I can find.

    EDIT: I think I might have found some relevant information posted by him.

    He just gathered info from various guides and made it work. So it it possible, just a lot of work.

    Right, seems like it. I'll keep looking and maybe get it working. I'm not too concerned if it doesn't, but it would be worth the effort.

    edit: Also, it is possible to modify serial #'s on A9LH Luma/Would serials be only changed/remapped in cfw or can I write them to the system somehow?
