    Hi @ all,

    I have seen those 3DS/brickway hardmods using a SD/microSD-adapter to get connected from the raspberry pi to the 3DS, but how would you do that on the pi2 where there is not SD, but a microSD slot?

    Best wishes!

    Technically, if you wanted to unbrick a 3DS with a RasPi, you would do it with the GPIO. If you want to do it with a SD adapter, you can do it even on Windows using a direct disk writing tool.

    The (Micro)SD on the RasPi is meant to store the OS so there's no way you would rewrite the NAND of a 3DS through this slot.

    I have never heard about this method. If you absolutely want to do it like that (from what I understand it does not need a NAND dump), yes that's the solution. But if you have a NAND dump, you're better off doing it like I said.
