    Somehow my wireless got switched off on my 3DS but my 3DS's switch is broken so I need a way to turn back on my wireless.
    I have a NAND backup but I don't want to use it if there is a way to fix it without flashing it.

    Take your battery out, and put it back in. That'll do the trick.

    I know that but I don't have a screw driver small enough at the moment.

    Oh. Then... I really don't think anyone's made such a thing, because of the battery trick.

    I've seen documented API's for battery and I think wireless too somewhere. It'd be useful to create a homebrew tool in the future in the case that this happens when they can't open up their 3DS.

    That's complete bs. The *hax home menu takover grabs that service and it works just fine as a 3dsx. Very useful homebrew for some people. I've attached all versions of the homebrew + source. Don't know why the author deleted it (along with all his other 3ds projects), but anyway, here you go.
