Hi all, Just wanted to post a recommendation for @gamesquest1's hardmodding service in England. He got my n3DS back to me within a week and has done a fantastic job. The port looks like it was meant to be there, and the soldering is a really neat job. Even though he's done hardmods for others and has a huge post count here, I was still uncertain about sending my 3DS to someone I don't know. But @gamesquest1 has proved not only his skill but also his trustworthiness Here are some photos of his work on my n3DS: (click thumbnails for larger versions). I highly recommend a hardmod to anyone who wants to downgrade but is worried about bricks. Even softbricks are disastrous now as they will force an update to 10.4, meaning no possibility of downgrading for now. Having a backup of your sysnand stored safely means you can confidently do whatever you want to your 3DS with no fear of bricks or accidental updates Thanks @gamesquest1 for your quick and fantastic work!
