    I'm on 11.2 and iv'e heard of all the stuff you can do on 9.2,but sadly i dont know any people who already have a hacked 3DS...

    So my only choice is to hardmod now.

    There's a lot of risks and since i don't know how to hardmod myself i'm a bit doubtful,as i dont know anybody ''trustworthy''

    So...should i?

    Thanks

    Dont try it yourself. I am experienced with soldering but I broke one unit. Pay Someone to do it for you.

    Please don't spread misinformation. 3ds hardmods are very easy. You just need a bit of soldering practice.

    I've done quite a few. You're literally soldering 4 wires and one of them is ground...

    You see, not everyone has those skills and don't like to own a expensive paperweight

    I completely agree. If you look at the hardmod thread and feel you would not be able to do it, you're probably right.

    What I'm disagreeing with is this statement;
    "Hard mods even to the best skilled hands are till really hard on points that small"

    It's just not true. If you have any soldering experience at all, hardmodding a 3ds is no problem. The points aren't "that small" and not much skill is required.

    Edit: I guess what I'm saying is please check and see what actually needs to be done to do the hardmod. You're soldering 3 wires to pads on the motherboard and 1 wire to ground, which is easier than the other 3.

    Very true, there guide here I'd vouch for. Although, flux splashes or things like that could be a problem a noob trying to hardmod would/could face.

    Buy a high quality, low watt soldering iron and practice your soldering on some discarded electronics to get into the groove then give your DS a go. It ain't as hard as folks make it seem plus it's so much more rewarding.

    Remember to wear your brown trousers!

    it really isnt that hard?

    I still have my doubts :wacko:

    mah lil bro :v is going on and on about black and blue screen of death and stuff like that :wink:

    im definitely gonna practice on dead stuff first.

    Its kinda like studying to be a surgeon :ha: you gotta open up dead stuff first so then you can open the live ones up and heal them! or at least make them have a faster death...

    Yeah, it's not hard. Definitely check out those reddit links.

    The soldering iron I use just has two settings and it works great on the low setting.

    Have you looked at the guide?
