    As general when you send it to Nintendo to repair it, they update the system.

    Yeah you'll end up on 11.0 without a single hax.

    A hardmod won't fix water damage, but I assume he meant have a hardmodder replace the motherboard, screen etc for you. That won't be cheap though.

    If you send to them there"s a little chanche you get it in 10.7 but there"s no assurance.
    That can be true, but it may change between what is the problem and also since there are masive people downgrading and using CFW that also helps that they can start to update more the received consoles.

    But it sent another 3DS XL that shutdowns itself without any reason when it has the lid opened at 180ยบ and they sent me a new unit. In the latest 9.2 at the moment.

    It doesn't "fix" water damage. Water damage implies you actually damaged the device (By trying to turn it on after getting it wet). If after the device gets wet, you remove the battery, and leave it (Preferably in a bowl of rice), you might be able to remove the moisture from the components before any damage takes place.

    Water doesn't necessarily destroy electronics. Water + electricity definitely does.

    Yes and No it all depends on things like how long was it in the water what has the water damaged ect.

    I remember I got water all over my old 3ds and I continued to use it a lot - the circle pad kept inputting left so it was pretty annoying :/ eventually I just left the 3ds for a couple of days and the circle pad worked fine

    Before you ship it off to nintendo put it in a bag of rice for a couple days. Its worth a shot.

    You might get a replacement console and not get the original one anyway.

    You got lucky. Moisture and electrical components don't work well together, and turning an electronic device on after it's gotten wet is absolutely the worst thing you can do.
