    If your friend can apparently jack a 3DS before its even released, tell him to hack it. It would do a lot of people good, considering we just found out it was region locked

    physically opening up system and hacking it are two different things. Heck even I could disassemble a 3DS, but to put back together.... [​IMG]

    I hopee to GOD that we can get something good out of this (like what type of software/firmware we'll need to use to hack the system,) yes i did read the above part, but don't some different systems require different firmware to run? if we knew what we were dealing with, we'd know what kind of firmware to use to hack it...

    I sense a new PopStation in the works.

    Edit: The Nintendo 3DS is now officially the easiest console to steal.

    If you look at the analog stick, it's the old color. So this is probably an older model.

    I still have no idea how he got it...
