    A Noob's Guide to Installing CFW on a 11.6 System Through the DSiWareHax Method After They Somehow Managed To Screw the System Transfer Up™

    Hello. You may be reading this guide over the fact that Nintendo removed the option to easily transfer DSiWare from a system on 11.6 (Still being researched) or you may have screwed up and did a Low-Capacity microSD Card Transfer instead, and be thinking to yourself, "HOLY S***! I JUST DID THE WRONG TYPE OF TRANSFER AND NOW HAVE TO PAY THOSE FLASH CART W***** A LOT OF MY F****** MONEY!!!". If that is you, calm down and seek help. Next, just follow this guide and it will show you how to fix your mistake and will also detail the steps needed for this CFW installation in the quickest manner possible. Let's get to it!

    NOTE: Do NOT follow this guide yet! It is incomplete and does NOT detail every step as it should! I will be sure to have it finished within a week! For now, just wait if you messed up and came here to fix your screwup (No, not your life jk)!

    Why? Why not suggest a fix to 3ds.guide instead of making a new guide for only part of that guide?

    Where would I do that? I think that would be MUCH less work than writing this entire guide. I underestimated the amount of work required for this...

    I found it. Thank you for that. I will suggest it in the Discord then. I may also finish the guide if I'm bored :P

    Since we're on the subject of doing dsiware transfers differently, here's this:
    https://pastebin.com/4kFHHVUn

    It does work, I tested it. I think this is a better way since you don't have to run a modified dsiware game through the long and complicated system transfer process. As long as the moveable sed is transferred, everything should be ok.
    btw - sudoku is just what I recommend, you can use any dsiware injection eligible game.

    That is essentially the same method that I used except you buy the game on the source system and transfer to the target and then a few other steps that I'm too lazy to detail.

    That difference is very important.

    Also, notice the date on that pastebin.
    I know what i'm talking about when it comes to dsiware transfer.

    It's not THAT different. It might just be a tad longer than your method however

    Another big difference with my method is that if somehow the dsiware didn't transfer or if it didn't work, you could buy a different game on the target system and not have to wait for the 1 week cooldown (assuming you made a backup of your nand on the source system like the instructions said).

    Anyway, I probably shouldn't have mentioned this method here, it just kinda popped out when I saw this thread. Been stewing in my mind for a while.
    If I say anything more about it, it will be in my own thread. Sorry.

    Why not submit it to Plailect as an easier alternative to whatever he has posted there currently. Surely couldn't hurt and would save a lot of people a lot of time. However, I don't think it would be as common as having the DSiWare on the source system proposed to the target system as most people using this guide are installing CFW onto their N2DSXL's that come preloaded with 11.4

    This method is interesting, basically your source has the same moveable.sed as the target from the NAND restore and all the target console is missing to import the DSiware from SD is a valid ticket, which is obtained by actually buying the game on the target console instead of the source, lol.

    question why hasn't nintendo pulled/patched the affected games (more the latter) are they that bad of an exploit it can't be patched?

    Hi, did hack the EU Zelda OOT 3DS of a friend, turns out she has Zelda 4 Swords on it, was it preinstalled or eshop on those Zelda OOT 3DS ?
    if Zelda 4 sword is pre-installed on the system and not downloaded from the eshop, can I use it to do a CTR-Transfer type of hack ?
    thanks for the answer^^

    They DID make them untransferable if you don't own anything else, indeed

    3 out of the 4 exploitable games are 3rd party (parties that have negative interest in digging out the source and fixing them, since it means work to be done for a reward of negative publicity), the 1st party one has only been released promotionally years ago so the same reasoning applies

    And due to the above points, the trick for about a year has been "buy a different DSiware and replace its executable with one of the four exploitable games, obtained from a unofficial source"
