    I'm wondering if there is anyone willing to make and ship me one of the 3DS solder-less pogo boards for the flash chip.

    It's my understanding that these can be made so that no case mod is required

    I'm in the U.S. and while I CAN solder it's not very good and I don't want to risk my 3DS XL...

    Ive never even heard of that. It would be beter to solder so you can get a good connection to your nand and not get a faulty dump from a pin not being in contact with the " pogo ".

    That requires you modding the 3DS chassis, which invalidates the warranty - if you're invalidating it anyway, it makes more sense to just solder wires, at least you'll be sure that you're getting accurate NAND dumps and not risk getting yourself a nice Nintendo-branded doorstopper.

    Now that I think of it, I suppose you could leave the wires hanging in the back cover, which wouldn't invalidate the warranty... but still, I'm not sure how much I'd trust Pogo pins for such a delicate operation as dumping/restoring.

    It's not about invalidating the warranty... that's long expired...

    It's more about the fact that I'm pretty sure I'd brick it if I tried soldering...

    I see. Maybe you can search around for some friendly temper that could do it for you?

    I meant soldering directly on your 3DS, not sure many people would spend time building one of those pogo pins thing-ma-jigs :P

    Pogo board will cost just as much as it would to pay me to hardmod it for you...

    I really like the idea of the internal USB

    Message has been sent to you, I did a quick google search as well to see what your talking about. I don't see anyone that manufactured them. Could be made, but cost of supplies probably don't justify making them.

    I believe he is referring to a prototype @gamesquest1 made a video of.
