Is there a homebrew to perma disable the c-stick on n3ds?

    My c stick is completely broken, non-stop random direction, reset does nothing. It was one of the first model and its a known problem, it broke up/down first, worked for a while with just left/right, but now its done, there is no saving it. I can barely access the menu now because the direction keep going wild, but the rest of the 3ds work fine, so I was wondering if there is a program to forcefully shut down the c-stick.

    Edit forgot to mention I have latest luma/cfw, I can run anything.

    Have you tried removing the nub itself? It won't look good aesthetically, but if you don't care, that may work. And if it doesn't, you can put it back on.

    It was already removed, I modded it with psp button, which probably shortened its life span. As I said, the stick is completely broken, there is no way to save it.

    It will be my last resort. I am not comfortable going that deep into the mobo chip and remove the hardware. Plus it leaves a hole on the 3ds which may cause some problems if stuff falls in.

    i would not reccomend that as these systems are notorious for refusing to boot with hardware missing or disconnected ... c-stick included if i remember correctly
