    Hello everyone,
    after long wait and screwing up by updating my 3ds xl, I just got it back from aliak11 whom I sent it to to get a usb mini port job done. I am very pleased with his service. He took in my 3ds xl with all care and returned it the same way I got it. I finally downgraded and am now able to get back to playing my gateway card again, unfortunately that stupid 2.0 update isnt out yet even after all this time. For anyone who is interested in doing a usb mini port job, I would highly recommend aliak11. He is the person for the job. Truly amazing aliak11, thank you again (and Msparky83, I know you were interested so I hope you dont mind if I tag you here ). Images below:

    Not bad. I'm waiting on parts to do one for my friend. I've already done a couple of original 3DS's. What did you pay him to do it?

    Nice tidy job and I was wondering the same thing what was the total cost of the job and P+P?

    Yes your nails are rather long for a man in img 5 but that is not whats important here! Just need cutting m8, nothing to worry about :) snip snip!

    Somehow I just seem to think that the MicroUSB port was designed to be put into the slot there.. Do remember to give feedback on the trading forums, otherwise, blogs :P

    Everything totaled out to $40, which was a decent price in my opinion.

    And about the nails...
    That is not me in the pic, that is aliak11 himself! I just posted the same images he sent me since there would be no point in retaking the images myself and I dont have the time lol! I never noticed the nails until you pointed them out, sheesh.

    OK, so my prices are competitive. Was just making sure I wasn't overcharging. ($32 shipped within the US).

    you can only downgrade your firmware if you made a dump of your nand while you where on 4.x or lower, the usb mod is good for freely updating and downgrading.
    it can also be used for unbricking if you want to use flashcard firmwares that have a bricking rick

    Sorry its taken me so long to post. Been kind of busy with life. Very good job mate. His mod of your console was nicely done. I'm going to post that video I talked to you about earlier last month as soon as I get the chance. Also, its good to see that Team Gateway is still alive and well.
