    Trying to fix the circle pad of the old original 3ds i have still i fucked up the circit so theres no way to fix it without getting a whole new mother board. Luckly I had modded a new 2ds xl. Anyway is the any use I can still get from this 3ds or just toss it since well alot games and apps need the circle pad.

    You can use it to play NDS games and probably games from older systems like SNES or GB with homebrew and emulators.

    Dropping these links in case your circuit is the joystick module and not the motherboard. There are slightly cheaper options for a single module for around $2. Check for circle pad caps that are made rubber coated.
