    I have a 4.5 3DS XL, I want to transfer my NNID to my 9.0 N3DS XL. On the O3DS, it says I have to do a System Transfer, no problem.. However it tells me I need to enter eShop before I can do that, and to enter eShop I need to update my 3DS, not happening.

    I have Cubic Ninja and can use Ninjhax. How do I get around this problem and transfer my NNID?

    Call Nintendo and tell them you bought a new 3DS and want to transfer your NNID if they ask what happened to the Old 3DS just tell them you sold it after formatting it completely. The process should take no more than 24 hours.

    Wait, which 3DS do you need to access the eshop with? If it's the old 3ds, you don't need to update

    Just google Nintendo support and call the first number you see the automated menu asks if your calling about a NNID transfer I'm on not on a computer ATM so I cant exactly just paste the number I called.

    Trying to transfer from an O3DS 4.5 to a N3DS. On the O3DS it's telling me to log into eShop first.

    Will do! I'll report back. Not sure if they'll be open on Saturday though.

    She's not trying to get onto the eShop doing this for a system transfer would update the system. Just call Nintendo the process is simple they will want to know the last 4 digits of your credit card what titles you've downloaded and when you sold the Older 3DS (lie).

    Getting into eshop updates the system? Not sure what system transfer steps are, but the link I posted works fine for getting to eshop without updating.

    Something goes wrong in Australia

    They told me yesterday that:

    Be careful to do NNID transferring not by yourself. This is One-off process only.
