    I need a new 3DS because my current one is pretty beat up.
    Would anybody be able to sell me one that's been hardmodded?

    Because, as it turns out, I have no idea how to solder things and I'm terrified to even try.

    Anything's possible!
    But it's also not hard to buy a system ≤ 10.7

    Actually, I don't know why I didn't think of buying an unupdated 3DS.
    Well, how can I be sure it's lower than 10.7?
