    That's awesome. I hope this project finishes early in order to change my N3DS's region.

    I'm 99.99% sure you can. Remember that the unit's serial is stored in this file so it might make using your NNID kind of a pita in some cases. (You'd need to call NoA to manually move the NNID to the donor serial if you've already moved it)

    Something like that yeah. There was a theory that you could inject an older FIRM*.bin to get access to the patched exploits with new FWs because those aren't console unique like other content is. Then use Cubic or OoT to launch gateway's launcher and DG to 4.x, upgrade back to 9.2. (Won't work on N3DS/2DS obviously) I'd test it out but I'm one of those people that won't even bother modding my 3DS until I brick it because I'm a lazy manchild. I also have zero clue as to if that would even work, seems it might but I'm waaay tired so I'm not really a reliable sauce of info atm.

    This.

    If it's permanent, then I've got another N3DS on the way.

    I'm assuming a region change from JP to US would require a JP copy of Cubic Ninja?

    I know work is being done on 8.1J, how has that progressed? I have a 8.1J console and I am thinking of ordering a JP copy of CN for region swapping.

    depends if cubic ninja will be able to be used without the browser installed, oot might be a more viable route....or just a sky3ds so then you dont have to gamble on either route

    If you're changing the region of sysnand, you'll need both a JP and a US copy. Or a sky.

    Well, yes, but if CN ends up working with 8.1J that is a much cheaper route compared to a sky3ds.

    Does the team here think that they will get CN to work with 8.1J?

    Ah, great explanation. I wonder if you could just replace the things that are needed for the MSET without having to go through those hoops. That seems a bit too good to be true, though.

    I'm glad that you pointed this out, because even though it seems glaringly obvious now, I definitely didn't even consider it til you pointed it out. Presumably, just the JP copy would suffice for region free though, right? I really don't want to also have to find a US copy... -_- It's really upsetting that Nintendo can't just give in on this issue and patch out the region locking. That would be the stuff of dreams and would restore a bit of my faith in Nintendo.

    Loading an old FIRM wouldn't do much of anything for us. Ninjhax already works on 9.5 with some simple tweaks anyways. We probably won't ship those tweaks, though, because they might cause compatibility issues with other software. Ninjhax won't be necessary with what we're releasing anyways.

    Also on the note of re-enabling the MSET exploit, it's not really that insane. We'd just reboot into a non-emunand FIRM with AM checks patched and install it over the newer one.

    Pardon my ignorance, does this mean this will work on 9.5?

    If you read the rest of the post you might get the impression that this is not supposed to happen.

    You know, the devs of this project, or any other capable person could see a good flow of money if they started converting n3ds EU/JP consoles to US ones. ;)

    lol, I meant before it is released to the public. otherwise they would be competing with too many people.

    Yes, I understand. My question was if it was possible.

    My bad, no. I meant you can get ninjhax going through modified 9.5 for homebrew on emunand, not from sysnand or anything. It's a stopgap thing we occasionally use for testing.

    Some pages back one of the dev team mentioned you might be looking at your own emuNAND format instead of Gateway's.

    But your post seems to indicate that you'll be using Gateway's to maintain compatibility. Is this something that is yet to be finalised, or has the decision been made to stick with the established format?

    I ask because while I have a gateway, I'm not interested in pirating. What I am interested in is installing the latest Monster Hunter title update so I can play online.

    If I setup an emuNAND with my Gateway, would it be compatible with KARL3DS or is it too early to say?

    If you did decide to go with your own redNAND format, would converting from Gateway's to yours be relatively easy?

    For example something like extracting emuNAND with emuNANDtool, patching the extracted partition , then reinjecting with emuNANDtool.
