    Run screeninfo.3dsx to find out. Installing the homebrew launcher will not have any affect on the 3DS, and it can be removed by deleting the files from the sd card

    Sounds like the guy barely wanted to take it out of the box and take pics. You think he's gonna run homebrew on it and pass on the results? lol

    yeah he wouldnt do that, he barely wanted to turn it on as its never been, however my 3ds friends hyrule is 1133 and its dual ips, this one is 1131, if you google qw1131, it says nothing but IPS confirmed dual IPS. also he said he looked from the sides and there is no washing, im taking his word and the internets and praying for the best, he opened it just for me, comes with original receipt, grabbing it for $200, now i can sell my dual IPS majoras mask :O

    So tn saves more battery while ips uses more color?
