    So, I've run into a bit of a situation, and I'd like to replace my touchscreen. I have a donor N3DS, but I don't know how, nor do I have the tools required. Does anyone know who I can have replace it for me?

    it is not that hard if you are careful not to break the ribbon connectors. you can remove the back of the 3DS shell then remove the board (you could try to flip the board up also). you should then be able to remove the touchscreen and bottom LCD from the 3DS then swap it.
