Hi,

I wanted to know if it is possible to take a motherboard from one NA new 3DS XL and swap it with another one.

My reason being is that I have both NA launch colors, black came with 9.0 while red came with 9.4, I will be returning one tomorrow and am more interested in keeping the red.


Thanks

can cause issues with the fact the serials wouldn't match up between the consoles, i read something about someone having all their content vanish one day, they phoned nintendo who said someone had reported the console stolen and had the content transferred to a new console., and that the serial they had on their case didn't match the one they had linked to their NNID....so yeah down the line mismatched serials could cause issues

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.

    i just saw a video yesterday that mentioned how it's a good thing 1-2-switch wasn't a pack in title because it would've made everyone lose faith in the switch immediately and they might have a point
