    Hello,

    I am wanting to perform a system transfer from a cfw n3ds to a clean o3ds. Is that possible without major risk? (I don't care about loosing cfw cias)

    And if so, is there an updated guide I can follow to uninstall cfw (as much as possible) on the n3ds after the transfer? I am currently running A9LH + Luma. I do have godmode and decrypt as well.

    Thanks for any help! (And good luck surviving the ban wave.)

    It is not possible to transfer from a New 3DS to an old 3DS.

    As far as I am aware, there is no risk of doing system transfers from a hacked 3ds to an unhacked 3ds. However, you will lose pirated games.
    EDIT: You can't actually do that

    Is it a 3ds or cfw limitation? And am I stuck unless I get another n3ds?

    I don't pirate, so I'm good there. ^-^

    It's a limitation by Nintendo. Once your data is on a N3DS, you're stuck with N3DS.

    It's a 3DS limitation. New 3DS can only transfer to other New 3DS. (and maybe the New 2DS when it comes out)

    EDIT: ItsMetaKnight beat me.

    Well poopy. Thanks for the help.

    My follow up question would be, is it safe/possible to remove cfw without loosing bought games?

    Yes, assuming those games are downloaded directly from eShop (or you're willing to redownload), but it's not worth to do that given that it will be unnecessarily difficult to get it back, while you won't gain anything...

    You just reflash the backup you made before installing A9LH.

    If you email Nintendo, they may be willing to move your NNID or classic shop account to an O3DS, but you can't transfer saves this way, and it's at discretion of who serves you, not something you're owed

    So all I need to do is reflash my backup? Is that done through godmode? What's exactly is difficult?
