    I have been holding L+R+A+Up(Dpad) on my 2DS v10.1, and I can't seem to get it open! I've tried holding it for different lengths of time but nothing...

    You guys aren't really helping... no offense. I don't want to go off-topic.

    It's still working here (2DS Sysnand 10.1.0-27E)

    You really have to push the L+R good on 2DS.

    It also helps to have a pencil on your month to push the power button
    Hold L+R+A+D-pad UP - keep holding them pressed and push the power button

    You should be in the (recovery) update screens, cancel and you get rid of any update nag for 10.2

    Thanks, but it was particularly the pencil-in-mouth method that I wanted to see in action :)
