    Just wondering if anyone has do a touchscreen replacement on an original 3DS? I see some of the listings for digitizers include LOCA glue but the teardowns I've seen make it look like you don't need to use LOCA to install these touchscreens.

    I've never looked too far into replacing the screens, but if it won't do any harm, go for it. It couldn't hurt just to have an extra layer of protection, especially if there's not much risk involved.

    I don't know much about replacing the screens. Would it really be better to go without it?
