    Is it possible to transfer my CFW from my 2DS to my stock 11.6 New3DS without DSiWare? Every method I see says I need DSiWare.

    And before you say "Just buy it then"- I have absolutely no money in which to do this since I have to save for everyone's Christmas gifts this year, so no freebie personal money this year...

    There is the seedminer method. tho it needs a 2$ game from eshop. if ya cannot get one. There is no way to transfer the information over to a stock console.

    Well, I'm screwed then- this was my last hope for live streaming 3DS games, as either the 2DS methods have absolutely unbearable quality or my antivirus picks it up as malware.

    • Find a local NTRboot fairy who will grant you free custom firmware installation on your 3DS.
    -or-
    • I don't recommend this unless your morals are flexible... Borrow eight quarters + some change for local tax from those wishing mall fountains. Then go put the +$2 onto an Nintendo eShop card you buy at Best Buy/Target/Walmart to do the seedminer DSiWare method.

    How I wish my main New3DS (neither of the two I mentioned here) was the source with CFW- it has compatible DSiWare I believe- unfortunately it is already on 11.8, making it ineligible for the role.

    If thats a old 2ds it wont stream at all i believe. Aswell. What makes you think that 11.8 screws anything for the dsiware transfer? It is able to be done. to the other new 3ds only. You cannot transfer a new console to a old one.

    I can't install CFW on the one New3DS with compatible DSiWare (In this case, Zelda Four Swords) as it is already on 11.8 official firmware. To clear the confusion-
    DS with compatible DSiWare: New3DSXL (Galaxy) 11.8 OFW
    DS that has CFW with no compatible DSiWare: Old 2DS 11.6 Luma CFW
    Desired target DS: New3DSXL (Black) stock 11.6 OFW

    Again, what does 11.8 mean at all to be able to do this?

    you need to upgrade to 11.8 to do a system transfer anyway,

    and you can go from your New3DS that has CFW (and a DSiWare game) to a New3DSXL

    That is the thing- NEITHER of the New3DSes have CFW, only the Old 2DS does.

    If I could install it on the 11.8 one with compatible DSiWare, I wouldn't be asking about transferring...

    Wait- if I am reading this on 3ds.guide correctly, am I able to install it straight to the main without getting the other two consoles involved?

    Whichever 3DS system possesses the legit purchased DSiWare title that is compatible with seedminer, may do seedminer.

    For shits and giggles, I think you can pass your Zelda4Swords from one n3DSXL to the other n3DSXL, and then do seedminer again for that 3DS.
    * Using System Transfer after you've done Seedminer CFW install on the first 3DS.

    I think I understand what the instructions say, so I'll grab a screwdriver (to access my SD card) and try this tomorrow morning (it is so dang late here, and need to hit the bed) I'll let you know if it works.

    lol, he kept on repeating that because it's on 11.8 it won't work, and why did he involve the other two 3DS'? lol
