    So somehow my son managed to break the top screen of his brand new system. The entire screen has lines going through it and a rough white patch covering the upper right corner. Clearly unfixable. I tried searching online for a replacement screen, but all I see are for the 3DS or the old 2DS. It doesn't seem like the New 2DS XL has screens available yet being so new.

    So this begs the question, what are my options? Sending it back to Nintendo for repair? I'm fine with that, but I don't think they'd appreciate my CFW though haha. If I do send it in, what do I do to make it seem like I haven't tampered with it? And if I do get rid of it, is it easy to get back? I had to use an old 2DS to get Luma on this model, but that system is long tone.

    Is there a better way?
