    Hello, later today i may be buying a 3DS on FW 1.0, so I was wondering if there is any guides or similar for backuping the Nand? and ofcourse I'm totally fine with opening my 3DS ;) Thanks :D

    Yeah there is:
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/nand-flash-dump-3ds.353263/

    it is not as popular as a 3dsXL nand dumping because a normal 3ds is harder to solder.

    if you don't care about the 1.0 firmware you can also update to a firmware between 4.1 and 4.5 (bothe 4.1 and 4.5 are also possible) and backup the nand with the gatewayloader (which doesn't require soldering)

    right here, right now
    is it an 3ds ? dont do it 90% chance of bricking you 3ds
    is it an 3dsXL? do it if you have a little experience with soldering

    not entirely true. the 3ds is harder to solder (if you dont want to take the motherboard out). but if you now what you are doing it will go fine

    It doesn't exist a 3DS XL with fw1.0 ;)

    Doing it is possible if you take extreme caution. I managed to do it on one (But broke camera connector, and the mod broke a few days after I did it)
    But I also completly failed on another one and has to sell it for parts :\
