    Check this link on eBay, someone want to sell a 3DS XL dev unit.

    At reading details it seems to be good status, just few scratch and the 3D mode switch is damaged but still easy to use.

    It's a Japanese firmware but dev menu seems to be in english.

    Would we be able to hack it?
    It only plays DS games, not 3DS games.

    If you read on 3dsbrew informations about 3DS dev unit, you'll know that they can't read commercial game, it's for development purpose only. You need to have a SDK and flash cart for dev etc...
    But it is not true for DS mode apparently.

    It's only a valuable collectors item. It will have the same functions as typical Panda unit, which WON'T LEAD TO HACKING 3DS, DON'T BOTHER ASKING.

    I can think of a lot of things to do with $600 bucks and playing old ds games on a dev unit isn't one of them

    I think that it looks like a retail unit is a bigger indication that it was stolen. You would expect a dev 3DS XL unit to have a different colour scheme, like with the original 3DS. You would only find dev units with the same colour scheme at gaming events. So the unit must of been stolen from a gaming event.

    I was suprised myself that the dev unit doesn't spot a different color scheme, like normal 3DS dev units do. (Google "Panda 3DS unit")

    it looks very obvious that is is stolen, the only reason this unit would be worth it if it was region free.

    It doesn't play retail 3DS games...at least not without resigning them.
