    Title. I just want to know because Phantom Hourglass Upper Wide Screen sounds like it might be even better.
    Even if it messes it up in a non-gamebreaking way.

    Above answer is wrong. It's possible but requires a TWL_FIRM modification

    Nobody has figured this out, so technically, it isn't possible.

    It was an accident. They were so fragile.
    Anyways, I gotta go for now.

    And yes, it was about 3 years ago. The wires and everything were mangled.

    You seem to confuse existence and possibility. It is possible, but it would require work.

    Was this proven possible though? I dare to ask.

    It is, just like AGB firm editing is to make the screen brighter

    This reminds me of the Gameboy Advance: when playing Gameboy Color games, L/R would toggle stretched screen mode.

    Something similar is probably possible (after all, the display is already scaled, we'd just be changing the aspect ratio), but since I have zero experience actually doing something like this, I shouldn't speak for those who can. My guess is that there's just some constants in TWL_FIRM that correspond to the scaled size, but who knows, it might not be that simple.

    Honestly, I don't get why people like versions of older games (VC or backwards compatibility) running at a stretched out aspect ratio. Stuff like DS/GBA stretching on 3DS is fine, but it'd look awful stretched to full screen.
