Hi, so I have a modded 2ds xl with CFW and all the homebrew stuff but I would like to transfer the NNID to a new 3ds I have ( not sure if I will install custom firmware on the 3ds yet) I would also like to keep the 2ds xl with the CFW and homebrew apps but have a new NNID on it.



I under stand that I would have to do a system transfer to make this happen but I am wondering what the steps would be and if I need to do anything in a specific order and if I need to back anything up on the old 2ds xl to carry on using home brew on it ( from my understanding the CFW will stay on there and I just have to do the finalizing steps again.



Would I just need to do a system transfer to the new console then when I'm back on my old console just do the finalising steps to add all the homebrew apps back? Then make a new NNID? Does the old memory card stay in the 2ds or go over to the 3ds when the transfer is being completed?



I'm not worried about transfering anything to the new 3ds other than the NNID.


I'm just worried about what I need to back up if anything on the old 2ds xl to carry on using it with homebrew as I think I read a system transfer formats the old system


I hope all this makes sense.

That is correct. There is nothing you need to back up.

Does the old memory card stay in the 2ds or go over to the 3ds when the transfer is being completed?
There is nothing integral to CFW that would require the card to be moved. But depending on how you do the System Transfer, you definitely have the option of taking the SD card out of the 2DS and putting it in the 3DS to continue using the software installed on it, as noted above.

You need to do the system transfer then use faketik to get your missing title to reappear.
Is that for the old 2ds or for the new 3ds as I'm not really interested in transfering any games or anything to the new one. Just the NNID.

Thank you. Do I just need to

1. Turn both systems on and do a system transfer to get the NNID over to the new 3ds.

2. Then on the old 2ds just do the finalising steps to get the homebrew back on and make a new NNID for it?

That's literally it? Am I missing any steps?

What about all the folders that was on the 2ds xls memory card when I done the original CFW? I remember dragging a whole load if things over from a zip file when I first installed custom firmware. Do they need to be put back on there as the memory card will be wiped after system transfer or were they all removed when I done the clean up step originally when installing the CFW ( if that makes sense). What I'm asking is what should be on the clean memory card that I put back into the CFW 2ds xl?

Hopefully all that makes sense.

    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
