    I won a New 3DS from one of those stacker arcade machines(Holy crap, I actually did it) and I wanna replace my kinda beat up one with it. Old N3DS has A9LH on latest firmware.

    Few questions: What will happen if I system transfer? I do have some games I legitimately bought from the eshop but also dozens I got from freeshop.
    Im fairly sure I wont, but will I be able to get A9LH again on the new one?
    Also what other risks(if any) are there? Thanks!

    It should work fine. In fact from what I've seen if you do an NFIRM downgrade(which requires a 2nd 3ds for a system transfer and an exploitable dsiware game that MUST be bought legit from the eshop ) you can downgeade the 3ds and A9LH it again.

    Just in case I'm wrong though please ask around. The guide for method in question is hosted on 3ds.guide so read up on that too.

    The legit ones would transfer, not the others

    What firmware does it have?

    You can purchase an exploitable DSiware game from the eshop on your A9LH 3DS, you can do a system transfer and then DSiware downgrade to install A9LH on the new one.

    https://3ds.guide/dsiware-downgrade

    Your games from freeshop won't transfer in a system transfer though. Only ones you have actually purchased. I would backup your saves with JKSM, then do a system transfer with that guide and hack the new one. Then put your games back on and reload the saves.
