    I was playing on my New 3DS last night, had it for almost s year now, and it was working fine. I open it up this morning and it's screens were black. I have been using Gateway and Homebrew with it lately, no problems, but I'm pretty sure this voids the warranty so sending it to Nintendo is out of the picture. I've seen people fixing the wifi modulator on older 3DS models and I tried to do this myself, but the New 3DS has a different screw size than the old model I'm pretty sure so I can't get past the back of the 3ds with the battery and micosd card. I'm wondering if anybody knows what or where to get tools for getting the second backing of the New 3DS off. Thanks in advance for any help or advice, all is appreciated.
