Hey all, over the past few days you might have seen my previous thread asking about how to open up the 3DS XL's top screen, as I want to paint the colored parts of the system a different color. I am happy now to present a success! Not a 100% success, but enough that I can provide some pictures and other info. In addition, I've had some issues from opening up the case, and I'm hoping that others with the tools and knowhow can repeat my experiment with better success completion, and thus expand this topic further. As far as I can tell there is no other recorded instance of the 3DS XL case being opened up on the top half, and so I hope that with this first success there can be a flurry of further achievements and we can fully document the best means of opening up the top half of the case and/or removing components within. For now, since I don't want to mess with the XL much more than I already have, I will stick to the removal of the top, and hopefully we can go from there. I will be completing a set of photos and a simple writeup of what I've figured out, which will fill the next few posts. I will do my best to give as much info as I can obtain so far. For those looking for more info, I apologize that this initial post doesn't have any pictures or info just yet. I want to work on it a bit more and then put it up on this thread, so please stay tuned for later. Thanks for reading, and I hope I can soon help provide some good info for those who want to mod their 3DS XL in the future.
