I had three 3ds systems (two 3ds-xls and a 2ds) that me and my two kids use. Recently my older kid broke his 3ds-xl (he is unable to stop compulsively clicking the hinge back and forth as he plays, and it finally snapped off leaving the top screen connected to the bottom half of the unit by just a wire).
I bought a new 3ds-xl with the plan to transfer my (non-broken) 3ds-xl to that, then transfer my younger kid's 2ds to my old 3ds-xl, then transfer the older kid's broken 3ds-xl to the 2ds (so he won't have a hinge to break anymore). The order of transfers would look like this:
- Non-broken 3ds-xl -> New 3ds-xl
- 2ds -> Non-broken 3ds-xl
- Broken 3ds-xl -> 2ds
The first transfer completed successfully, but I was unable to initiate the second one because the non-broken 3ds-xl said I had to wait 7 days. This is even though it acted as the source of the first transfer and needed to act as the destination for the second transfer. Is there any way around this? Presumably I will run into the same issue with the 2ds. Will it really take 14 days to complete this upgrade maneuvre?
