I had to hardmod my 3DS because arm9loaderhax suddenly stopped working.
I've managed to restore a NAND backup and the 3DS is now working with firmware version 6.3.0-somethingE, however, during reassembly, I accidentally broke the R button flat cable. I know I can buy a replacement, but I thought about fixing it by soldering wires to the test pads.
Can someone tell me where I should solder them?


EDIT: I found the pad for the R button, and I know it has to make contact with the ground to activate. However the "button" has got 3 pins on the back + 2 on the sides. I tried attaching the wires to some of the pins but it didn't work.

this relates to a o3ds XL, but the testpoint will be labelled the same (TP82)

although a replacement should be dirt cheap anyway, last time I checked I think it was about £2 for both L&R flex cables

The "button" itself has got three pins on the back + two on the sides, and I don't know which two to connect
