So I bought a 3ds xl back in the Summer for myself and my nephew. Been running gateway and he has been having a blast with it. I'm not exactly sure what happened, but he is a 7 year old he likely dropped it or was rough with it, now it's having issues reading the Gateway card. When I put a card in the picture will show on the screen but when clicking on it I get the 'an error has occurred please hold down the power button..." screen. So, my questions are as follows. The system is still under warranty, but since it has been hacked should I even bother, will nintendo just send it back? I did backup my original nand like everyone warns you should do, but from what I've read it will take some master soldering skills and apps that aren't even in english just for me to get the original nand restored. Then when I do get that, it will be obvious I have messed with it and the warranty will be voided anyway, right? Also, just from reading (please correct me if I'm wrong that's why I'm posting) it seems like the issue is likely the card slot. I've seen the slots selling for around 15 bux. Do you think this will solve the problem? How much work is involved in replacing one, is it a lot of soldering as well? I'm no stranger to a solder gun, but things are so tiny now it seems as if everything is made to just be thrown away since the home hobbyist doesn't have equipment with microscopes and tiny points on it. Thanks in advance, any help appreciated.
