    ok so like alot of other people here im tired of the winning of the newer firmware not being supported so heres my idea (saw this on guitar forums)if anyone finds 4.5 3ds or 3ds xl for sale anywhere online post them here this way if anyone still needs a good firmware 3ds they can because lets face it retailers are gonna run out quick

    It's simple:

    You ask what the copyright number on the back of the box towards the bottom is.

    I did this at Gamestop and just traded my 3DS for an XL. Tada!

    Off topic, but I'm curious: What color did you trade in, and what color did you end up with?

    I think there are people on Craigslist who are willing to trade as well, I made an ad on there to see if people will get a hold of me/

    Selling it on Amazon will also yield far more cash than if you did at Gamestop

    I traded in I think... a black normal 3DS and got a blue 3DS XL?

    You have to find a game for like a buck in the DS "games bin", where all the outcasts go. At least at the gamestops where I'm from, if you get something that was pre-owned they'll give you more for your trade in. Got me an extra 30 bucks by buying that game that I just threw away!

    I'll have to buy a 3DS XL on 4.5 (My 3DS 4.5 is broken, I tryed again to add nand dump thing but again failed, and this time it's worse...)
    I'll say you if the shop I intend to go have copyright 2012 or not (It may be usefull if french people comes here)

    Yes, that's what we're talking about...

    If it was a 2012 copyright, it will have a firmware that's 4.5 or below. Firmwares above 4.5 for US came out after 2012, so it's a guarantee!

    I am pretty sure all the 3ds in India which are in stock are below 4.5. My friend just got his a day before on v1.x I guess.
