    How come one of my N3DS XL has more free icon slot space than the other?

    M main unit is crippled when it comes to the amount of icon space than my other unit.

    here is a video i made to show you what I mean. sorry for the bad quality



    How can I expand the amount of slots on my main unit like my other unit?

    Just download more eshop games. It will expend automatically.
    Max titles in all cases = 300

    I figured it out. Some modified themes have more slots than others. I had to load a theme that has these extra slots then change the theme to anything i want and the extra slots become permanent.

    OK, good to know. The best theme to use for that... is the "none theme"! :-p
    (disable themes)

    But how can a theme affects icon slots? All my themes are able to scroll all the way to the right, even custom ones.

    This is because you got a theme from the theme shop, just get a free theme like sonic to get more space. (Or buy one)
