    OK after doing a hamfisted job of modifying my 3DS XL I've bluescreened the console.
    A capacitor has fallen off (C154, below the CLK test point on the diagram), the console was still working after that.
    I believe I then managed to damage a resistor array (RA2, near the DAT3 test point on the diagram) after trying remove solder from the flooded joints. The blue screen happened because of this.

    From testing with a multimeter I believe the array to be this now:

    |50   |50   |50   |50
    ---------------------------
    |850 |850 |50 |50

    all of the resistors should be rated 50 ohms I believe (could anyone check for me?). I could buy another surface mount resistor but I don't have the equipment to precisely attach it.

    Reference Image I'm using (not my specific console):

    Some low temp solder paste and throw in the oven if you want to try to replace it I'd say that's your best bet without going out and buying equipment or another 3ds.

    Well I can't remember much since I swapped this 3DS XL but I believe it wasn't needed for the console to function. I ended hardmodding the 2nd o3DSXL successfully with a microusb to NAND port.
