    While trying to replace a broken touchscreen on my old 3ds, I pulled the back off to fast and severed the cables that connected the L and R buttons to the board. Is there anyway to buy a new one? All I need to do is get a new back(shell).

    All you need to do is buy new buttons (with cables)

    I think you can find them on AliExpress. Just be careful to get the right ones as they are different for each model 3DS.
