    So i got me a broken O3DS XL (and i'm not planning on doing it away but using it for something usefull)
    - Touchscreen only works on the left side (new touchscreen doesn't solve the problem)
    - Camera can't boot, it errors out when trying to launch it and then locks up the 3DS

    It's a left over i put together from 2 broken 3DS used to make 1 working
    It boots fine and it's on 4.5 (E).

    Anyone knows what i can still use it for?
    - xorpads (since it's 4.5)? (do i even have to be on 4.5 for that? (i know you used to, but i think rxTools can do it now)
    - Testing stuff out
    - ???

    rxtools and install games that don't require the use of a touch screen?

    You can install classic games too.

    Couldn't you put all the legit cias for your region on sysnand, then update to latest firmware, then system transfer to a working console, then ??? profit

    Not only 1 more like 0 (already tested this out moths ago :) )

    Will use it for testing purpose (new cfw's/updated cfw's/cia's/homebrew) and generating xorpads to make cia's
    this way, when it works on it, i can use it on my other o3ds knowing it works and doesn't mess up things :D )

    I already updated it to 9.2 with sysupdater and installed rxTools, downgraded mset and make it boot rxTools when clicking the ds profile
    on it also emunand 10.0.0-27E. Camera not working i can live with, i never use that, just a pitty i can't use QR codes to launch something
    No NNID setup and no eShop configured, i could do that and only use the left side of the onscreen keyboard to enter stuff (hope A button works as enter cause i can't click the enter icon, does not react anyway)

    Damn, you can't take a single legit cia with you in a transfer? How does the system transfer know that your legit cias aren't legit legit.

    We don't know how clean the legit cia's are, we know something is missing, but don't know what and can it be reproduced or not :) it will stay a mysterie.
    We know 1 thing, bundled/pre-installed games are not linked to your NNID but to the console somehow.
    I bought a second hand Mario Kart O3DS bundle with a linked NNID, i formatted the system (Game was gone from the system) and linked a new NNID to it, got into the eshop and i could download mario kart for free
