    I have a N3ds with arm9loaderhax.

    I just got another N3ds and I want to transfer everything on the SD card.

    What's the best solution?


    Thanks.

    Do a system transfer. If the target console is not hacked then you'll lose all non-bought stuff.

    That's the problem. I have roughly 50GB of downloaded games (from the FreeShop) and I don't want to download them again. (Plus the save games) I can't do a system transfer because I would need to update both 3ds.

    Thanks for answering

    If you have a9lh and the latest Luma you can update. If you want the games on the other 3DS you will need to install a9lh. Then you can backup the tickets on the source console, do the transfer, then reinstall the tickets. Then all the games will show up.

    So, just to make sure. If both 3ds have the latest a9lh and Luma, I can update and won't lose the downloaded games or being able to download games/themes in the future?

    Ok. Thanks. I'll give it a try and I'll post the results.
