    I'm looking for someone who would hardmod my 3ds if I were to send it to them with the parts and payment via mail, preferrably in southern new hampshire/northern massachusetts. I would be looking to do a case swap and upper LCD replacement.

    @gamesquest1 is the only hardmodder in the UK I know of. There might be others but they probably aren't on GBAtemp. Nevermind thought you were in UK lol.

    I don't bother with the top screen replacement, them ribbons in the hinge nonsense piss me off.

    He's so right though, fuck, I've replaced the top screens of a few DS systems back in the day and trying to roll the ribbon cable into the hinge and pass it through to the other half of the console is actually a nightmare

    Are you trying to get a NAND hardmod at all? Or just a new shell and screen? Might want to be more specific about that because the people who do the former rarely do the latter (and vice versa)

    Only the new shell and screen. I think my NAND is fine.

    Eh, looking at your prices, I'm not sure I could do that, like at that price point I might as well buy a slightly used 3ds. No offense, I'm sure you do great work, but I don't see this working out.

    can be even cheaper to fix, if you already have new shell or screen for it (or both), contact me on ebay

    I don't think replacing the screen is hardmod. I'd do it if I had to. I just did a motherboard and joystick swap no issues on mine. But those ribbon cables look like a jolly fun time to do too. (btw in NH).

    I also have a friend who replaces all stuff on 3DS's too in MA/NH area, were on the border.
