(This is specifically about the "new" Nintendo 3DS XL, but I suppose it could really be aimed at any of the 3DS/2DS models. ¯\(º_O)/¯) To make a long story short: my nN3DS XL won't boot up anymore. It's not because of any homebrew or mods; if I plug it in, the Charging light goes on — correctly detecting that the battery needs charging — but the power button does nothing, regardless of whether it's plugged in. To make a short story long: I mad a few mistakes when I foolishly disassembled my nN3DS XL in an attempt to fix its D-pad a few days ago. My first mistake was being impatient enough to try to do this, and my second mistake was actually trying to do it. But I digress. I've taken it apart about another half-dozen times, and as far as I can tell, every single cable is plugged in correctly. Two things may have happened during the initial disassembly process: 1.) I fried the system via static electricity; or 2.) the system somehow fried itself when I decided to see if it would turn on without a battery in it. I am not a clever man and, at times, I am quite unintelligent. This leaves me with roughly three options: Buy a new nN3DS XL and deal with the loss of DSiWare, StreetPass tags, Activity Log history since I got my original N3DS XL about two years ago (I did a System Transfer from the N3DS XL to the nN3DS XL on February 13 this year, when the nN3DS XL launched), et cetera. Pay someone (from here, maybe) to be a wizard and repair my nN3DS XL to the point where it will at least turn on and be capable of running the System Transfer. Pay someone (again, maybe from here) to be a Wizard Grand Master Champion, and have them take the NAND flash memory chip from my current nN3DS XL's motherboard and put it onto a different nN3DS XL's motherboard. (This would probably be almost impossible.) Sadly, I don't have a Gateway card or anything else that would allow me to back up the NAND; If I had a NAND backup, I'd just go with Option 1. But since I really don't want to lose any data, how viable would Option 2 and/or Option 3 be?
