I didn't read a guide or anything before attempting a system transfer, which was a mistake. What I did:

  • Backup SD card
  • Put SD card in new 3ds, perform a system transfer (3ds system options, wireless transfer, whoops.)
  • Setup the new 3ds some
  • Hack the 3ds, installing Godmode9, Luma, boot9strap, checkpoint, FBI, rosalina... the standard stuff from the guide
  • Couldn't find titles, googled a bit and discovered faketik.3ds. I put it in my 3ds folder, and ran it from homebrew. My titles such as Ultra Sun, X, Alpha Sapphire, a couple rom hacks, appear (ultra sun, X, alpha sapphire are legitimate, installed directly from a game cart.
  • Everything works ... except:
Checkpoint isn't seeing these titles anymore. What is the course of action I should take? Do I need to uninstall the games and reinstall from game carts/cias or is there a easy solution that I can do (something like writing the titles to system memory??) I found a guide for this after the fact that do this, so of course, those don't help in my current situation. I do have a backup of the SD card...

You could look at refreshing the checkpoint game list first to see if that brings up the games you're missing

Ah, that option is not listed in the 'Hold SELECT to see commands.'

I seen from another post from you, just now "press and hold B while in checkpoint to reload and refresh the games list. Aswell, the codes may or may not work, depending on a few things. if it dont, then you may want to look elsewhere to get codes."

That did the trick. Thank you!
