So I found a pretty complicated article on how to swap shells of a 3DSXL on IGN, but I recently just found a simpler looking method on reddit. Can anyone tell me the differences between the two methods because it looks like it's just plain better to do the one shown on reddit. Thanks! IGN method: ca.ign.com/wikis/nintendo-3ds/3DS_XL_Shell_Swapping reddit method: http://www.reddit.com/r/3DS/comments/1judnj/3ds_xl_top_shell_removal/ To clarify, I want to swap a red 3dsxl with a black one, so the inside panels wouldn't be a problem because they're the same colour, right? Also, bottom plate is a simple swap no matter what.
