    For Gateway 3ds Black and gray lines, people are saying that keeping the cartridge slot empty helps, I have yet to test this though.

    I just tested it and it didn't seem to help
    If you do test can you post your results

    I might if I get a decent amount of results sadly I think for it to be decent I need 100 tests for each method

    Ok, I tried it 3-4 times in a row and the system did not hung up once. Will try some more after playing and post.

    Pretty sure your theory on LBW is correct. A crappy SD that I knew had connection issues home close crashed each time. Original SD which came with it has no issues.

    I have been using the original SD that came with the 3DS XL I bought about a week ago. First 3 tests I did it closed just fine and loaded fine. Later I was trying to set up the Streetpass feature and the NPC you talk to forced me to save. I had my Wifi switch on when I tried to exit right after that and it hung on closing. It just seems to be completely random... unless having wifi turned on affects it somehow.
