    This has probably been asked before. So i''m probably able to get a new 3ds system, but i was curious about my old one. I had installed the custom firmware on it as done in the github guide by phlacet (did i spell it wrong?) But if i wanted to system transfer to new one with cfw, what process will i be able to use to keep both on cfw?

    Also yeah, system transfer won't remove CFW.

    So i do system transfer, the stuff gets on new 3ds then the old one will be like new again but still have cfw
    Do i need to install cfw on the new one first?

    Yes, definitely install CFW on the new one first, otherwise it will force you to update to 11.0 and you'll be locked out forever.

    Pirated games won't transfer, but you can install the tickets and the saves will be there

    I have an odd question on the same topic: Can you do a system transfer from one system's EmuNAND to another system's SysNAND without removing stuff from the SysNAND console? (Tickets I guess?)

    So install cfw on new 3ds first before system transfer, so then both systems will still have cfw and my new 3ds will have all my purchased owned content from the eshop too right?

    So if i do buy a new 3ds xl, and i happen to get unlucky and need to downgrade to install hax, is there a reliable person i can contact for help? I'm hoping it won't come to that but you never know.

    Most things on the target console will be removed during the transfer anyways. EmuNAND->SysNAND seems to work fine from what I have heard, but transferring to emuNAND seems to be problematic (errors halfway through once the target system reboots and you have to boot back into emuNAND, problems getting the transferred data to be recognized etc... It seems to work out in the end but I can't remember what the workaround was)
    I did sysNAND->sysNAND myself and that went just fine, from a 9.2 console to a 9.0 one when the latest was somewhere between 9.6-9.9, using the eshop version check bypass with NTR-CFW on the target console (n3DS) and the spiderhax based version check bypass payload on dukesrg's site on the source console (o3DS). But I digress.
    emuNAND->sysNAND by extension should also work fine as I don't believe the source system reboots until the process is complete, I could be wrong though.

    Okay, so i found a possible seller who says the system is on 10.7, Is it possible to install a9hl on the system without a hard mod downgrade?

    Yes, but you'll need an exploitable game like Cubic Ninja, Zelda OOT3D, Freakyforms etc...
    Note that appart from Freakyforms and Cubic you will need to Install the hax to the cart (so that means access to the homebrew launcher or powersave)

    I know, i can handle it from there, i just needed to know if it could be done, or i would have passed on the system and looked for lower one. I'll be able to use my legend of zelda ocarina of time to get homebrew running and perform downgrade safely correct?

    Yes, if you can inject the hax in the cart with either the homebrew launcher or a powersave (or any kind of device that can write saves to a 3ds cart)

    I will do the downgrade then, i suppose. Glad it can be done on 10.7 then after i install the a9hl and cfw, then just do the normal system transfer from the system menu, correct?

    just curious, what if i just use a nand back up and flash it to the new system, would that just duplicate the stuff on the new system?

    No ! Don't do that ! A Nand is unique to each console you can't just swap nands between consoles

    Okay, recent update, i got my new 3xs xl today, and i followed the guide on github by plaiced, i installed a9hl with 0 errors, but for some reason i have what is called a luma cfw by @Aurora Wright which is not what i remember from before when i had done it on my o3ds. If i remember, there was something about pasta and cake cfw, so i think the guide has changed or been updated.

    My first question is was that change necessary?
    Second, what are the differences between the pasta cake thing and the new luma thing?
    And last is Is it safe to do system transfer to the new 3ds from old 3ds? What will happen and will there be any problems? I hope that someone who has experience with system transfers can tell me cause i don't wanna mess things up.

    possibly in your closet
    The full a9lh used to use MiniPasta and CakesFW, however in the updated guide, it's been replaced by Luma3DS. I don't know much about system transfers, as I've only done one from SysNAND -> SysNAND.

    Don't worry Luma3DS is a very good if not the best CFW currently.
    As long as your two consoles are fully updated with Luma you can perform the system transfer like normal
