    I can teach you how to do one if you want (I live in Cuba, not in Aus, I can teach you here, in this thread)
    It's not hard if you have a O3DS XL

    To be fair if someone is asking for someone else to do they either, a: Don't have the required skills/equipment to do it, or b: aren't confident enough to do it themselves. Or both a and b.
    So it's better that someone that DOES have both the skills/equipment and are confident in doing it, do it rather than ruining their 3ds like I've seen so many people who attempt it do on here. :)

    Thanks Jao. And yeah, I don't want to do it myself. I recently thought I'd have a go putting my DS lite in a shiny new shell, and broke a little connector near the top of the motherboard trying to get the ribbon cable from the bottom screen into it. I want to kill whoever wrote the guide that said to flick it up and take the ribbon cable out, because not even 1mm high elves would be able to get that cable back in. But anyway, I solved it by buying a $10 DS lite with a broken hinge and stealing its motherboard. If I break something in my 3DS, I'm not going to fix it for $10.

    haha yeah some of those cables can be a real pain in the butt to get back in sometimes.

    Someone asked them about it not long ago and they said they don't don't do it (permanent mod).

    Oh my bad I could have sworn they did. OP I am sure you can find a pc repair shop or a console repair shop that might do it as well if you get provide the parts and the pin out
