    You have to unscrew the backplate using a small crosshead screwdriver.
    Then, you can use the back end of the stylus to gently pry the backplate off with a little hook.

    There you'll find the microSD card slot.

    This is definitely something to keep in mind when you want to perform a 3DS to New 3DS system transfer, have a screwdriver ready, and ideally already be using a microSD card in your old 3DS.
    For the sake of the Cubic Ninja exploit and managing SD storage this is a little bothersome.

    Tried to install the exploit, but i don't have the fitting screwdriver. Thank you for your answer!
