    I want to install a micro usb port on my new 3ds xl so i don't have to solder every time to switch NAND or whatever.
    I have all the materials and i know how to solder.

    My problems:
    1) Where do i do the hole? and HOW i do the hole? ( what did you use?)
    2) How do i cut the Female USB Micro-B connector? and how do i place it into the console, do i have to use hot glue?

    I hope you can help me . thank you very much all.

    use a nail file, it makes it much smother then the knife, the knife get's uneven, nail file + 10 minuts of your time and you will have a perfect spot.
