    I sent my 3DS to Nintendo for screen scratching (THEY DIDN'T FIX THE BUMPERS RAIG) and checked the activity log.
    There's some app that ran, which was not added to my library, called a bunch of question marks..
    I know they didn't just remove it because I got the notification for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic games demo when I checked.
    What is this??

    I had it to after sending mine in to have the software fixed, had a fatal issue when running games. I just deleted it anyway, it didn't bother me.

    Just curious, did you get a new 3DS or the same one for the screen scratching?

    It's probably a diagnostic program that Nintendo runs to check for unauthorized software.

    Mine was the same. I wrote down the serial number on the back of the unit to check.

    Probably diagnostic crap. Like Apple does to make sure you don't have a jailbroken device. Its a step up from their previous AP methods (kinda). But if it leaves a log, its either a really dirty method or someone got lazy.

    Um, they haven't said anything about my flashcart, so I guess it's fine..

    Because flashcarts don't mod anything inside the (3)DS. They may also be using it to test software, given that the 3DS has had software issues in the past. MAYBE its from a firmware reflasher.

    Or maybe Reggie just pissed on it. He pissed on it and sent it back to you and the piss was so full of Nintendo stuff it didn't know what app it was "launching" and crashed.

    I mean, look at his face. EXACTLY the type that would piss on something you bought. I would know, I'm an expert.

    Is this a bad time to ask who the heck this "Reggie" person is?

    Sneaky program indeed. Leave random item on CustomerXX's 3DS. Wait for them to mention it online. @Janthran = CustomerXX.
