    I bought a 2DS that was very cheap because of some minor issues and I need some help fixing the SD card slot
    It gives me an error saying "write protection is enabled" because the little metal pin that's supposed to be pressed up by the SD card lock switch was badly bent (I assume the previous owner jammed an SD card in wrong or somethign) and I ended up snapping it off while trying to poke it back into place
    I'm assuming that I should be able to simply solder 2 pins together to completely bypass the write protection but I'm not sure which of these pins that would be
