Would this scenario be possible? (Regarding CFW on a JPN N3DS LL and games from other regions.)

    So I have a Japanese N3DS LL that I purchased not too long ago, and I plan on throwing CFW on it, to start using as my main system (giving my US region one to my spouse). Would I be able to install backup cia's on this system from other regions (primarily US), and still be able to play with her and possibly online if the game supports it?

    Looked into changing the region on emuNAND, but that appears to lock out the eShop (which I may still use occasionally). The process seems to be too much of a hassle as well.

    Thanks for any input!

    Answer is Yes you can

    You can get banned for playing out of region CIAs online but the only ones i have seen do it is Monster Hunter X

    (ban is only 2 weeks)

    Though you both need the same region game to play local multiplayer o you will hae to install US games

    There wont be any potential problems with this? Sweet!

    All I have to worry about now is transferring all my saves over, which will be a tiresome process.. let alone installing all the games again.

    EDIT: I heard about the out of region CIA thing, but haven't experience anything yet (playing patched MHX online daily from my US 3DS). Same region game is self-explanatory ^^

    Hello guys

    Cant seem to find a link after doing a search on GBAtemp.

    Hoping someone can help me as I have an old 3dsxl on version 8.1 with gateway 3ds on version 3.7.1.

    However, when trying to run the MHX.3ds file (already been patched to v10) in gateway mode, I get a black screen when the game starts to load.

    Would anyone have any advice for me on how to get pass this issue or any guide that I can follow? Thank you very much.
