    Can't you do a system format to remove the parental lock?

    Only other way I know of to remove it is neimod's parentool, but I don't think that works for 7.0+

    Have you set up a wifi connection in the past? If you can remember what it is, you can make a network with the same SSID and Password and Encryption, and the 3ds should connect to it.

    That's all I got :/

    I'm not sure since I have never been to a Nintendo Zone but I thought I read that 3DS auto logs into them. So if that is right maybe try going to a McDonalds and see if that would work.

    Exactly. Set up home pass and you are on the net.

    There are programs that can generate a code to remove the parental lock...
    3DSExplorer, for instance. I think it should work on latest firmwares too.
