    Only reason i ask is someone wants my ambassador 3ds once i transfer all the content back to a zelda XL. I did one transfer around midday last Saturday and would like to post it to its new owner before the PO shuts around the same time.
    Anyone know if its exactly 7 full days between transfers or would it be possible Saturday morning? Not a big problem just curious and cant find an answer anywhere else.

    Well, my ambassador 3DS now says I can do the transfer so I set it up to do so but the XL says 2 days remaining for the transfer. I did them both at the same time last week so why on earth is this happening?

    Isn't there a way to trick the 3DS into believing the 7 days are over yet?

    I don't think so because you need internet connection and your console and/or NNID gets checked by the Nintendo Servers. I assume they just flag your account and then the timer starts.

    It's not about the system data, it's because the console has a unique ID that Nintendo uses to verify it against their database when a system transfer was last performed. Also the console that sends the system data gets formatted at the end process.

    hey at least they removed the limit of system transfers, I think you could only transfer five times, then never again.

    Not sure, it might be a FW, doubt it though. I'm assuming you'd see, people who use 4.5 FW, would be bitching in the forums how Nintendo doesn't want my money, blah blah blah, Sony wouldn't do this, blah blah blah....
