    Run screeninfo.3dsx to find out. If you do not have homebrew installed, use soundhax to load it. This will not cause any changes to your console, and will not void your warranty. You can delete the files from the SD Card after.

    okay, awesome thanks.

    i'll try, but i am wondering now whether Homebrew launcher will run on my 3ds or not.

    it seems it is not able to run , i use updated sysNAND with luma cfw, on latest fw.
    11.3 and i got an error when i tried launching HBL, the error codes : 007a0000/0180000/d8e17406

    i googled just now, i am supposed to use soundhax for the meantime.
    oh well, time to google some more.

    @Mikemk Where would I go to learn how to 'run screeninfo.3dsx through homebrew installed on an SD card and using soundhax to load it'. I have minimal knowledge how 3DS things like this, considering I've just purchased one.

    Would appreciate any help, trying to find out if my 3DS is a brick

    Did not know exactly what I should google, so I figured I'd reach out. Didn't know you'd react pompously. You must think you're a pretty big deal...

    A few I have:
    3DS XL Silver Mario & Luigi Edition. Both TN.
    2DS Older Electric Blue with black face. TN.

    *new* 3DS Super Mario Land Edition. Both TN.
    *new* 3DS XL Hyrule Edition. Both IPS.
    *new* 3DS XL Black. Top IPS, Bottom TN.

    I enjoy gaming on my *new* 3DS XL Black with its top IPS screen. Colors seem a bit washed out on my 3DS XL Mario & Luigi Edition. The Zelda system stays in its box as a collector's item. Will build a display one day.

    Hi, I have O3DSXL, with dual TN displays, and now I am thinking about buying N3DSXL. Can someone tell me if this one is dual IPS, I found this one used so I can't run screeninfo.3dsx on it. nintendo-new-3ds-xl-slika-81293554.jpg

    No, no one can tell you if it's not at an angle.
