    So my 3DS XL hinge has been broken for a while but about a month ago I received a replacement part for it, i have a 0, 00, and 000 screwdriver but they won't take out the screws under the backplate. Any ideas on how to get them out?

    Some say you need a #JIS00 screwdriver, but I used a Phillips #00 one and was able to open both my o3DSXL & o3DS without issues.
    Just be sure to press downward on the screws so you don't rip them, and in case it happens, try with a slanted #2 screwdriver just as small as the head of the screws.
