    I need the serial number from a 3DS I got yesterday to transfer via Nintendo Customer Service, but they need the serial number... but it erased by the use.

    Is there a way to know the serial number via software? The 3DS has homebrew and CFW acces BTW, old3DS XL.

    Well... this is surprisingly simple, thank you.

    Using CTRX I can even copy the serial number with the built-in hex editor lol.

    It should be also available behind the bottom cover.

    As I said in the OP, it erased by use.

    EDIT: Oh I forgot it comes inside too... well, I already got my serial throu the secure_info lol.

    Well if someone cares, just dump your Secure info file using Decrypt9, then open it using a her editor of your choice and look to the bottom, starting on 0x102 offset, that's your serial number:
    EDIT: Derp.

    Might not want to share that information. (Your personal dump)

    Any reason to post the same comment... thrice?
    BTW, the devmenu apps show your serial on the top screen.

    He really wants the OP to remove that personal dump. You could do all kinds of (network) harm to his 3DS if you use his serial to use hacks/cheats online.

    I don't know why anyone here would care that much though to harm a random user.

    I'm sure there is at least one troll on here.

    All it takes to get console banned.

    Today was very trollistic either way.
    Because that's a word.
