    Please don't do this if you actually are a child whose parents have installed the restrictions for your safety, this is for the situations where somebody has enabled them without your will or if you are a parent who has forgotten their childs PIN.

    I am not responsible for any damage to your 3DS, action by Nintendo or angry parents as a result of this guide.


    1. Go into parental controls and say you've forgotten your PIN, keep doing this until it says to phone nintendo.
    2. Enter the inquiry number and the systems date into https://mkey.salthax.org/
    3. Enter the key given as a result as the master key on your 3ds.
    4. Done!
    There you go, you can now use your 3ds unrestricted. Enjoy! :)

    (Thanks to whoever made this site for letting us do this :P )

    That'd be the SALT team, more specifically, I think Dazzozo made it. But yeah, it's a handy site to have, especially if you snipe cheap 3DSes off eBay that are "broken" because they have a parental lock.

    It does. It says it support system ver 7.2.0 to 10.7.0 (since the last change in this was on that ver).

    I recently came into possession of an Aqua blue 3DS that was not working because of a parental lock. Too bad because one phone call to Nintendo and they sorted that shit out for me.

    Yeah this is the alternative for people who don't want to get on the phone with Nintendo.

    What I used to do with parental locked systems was Google most used pins and go down the list... it actually worked the 2 or 3 times i did it XD

    So what you can do with a unrestricted 3ds? Just to watch porns on your pixelful screen? Well at least it's in 3D XD

    Thanks to SALTs generator, I was able to remove the pin on a Wii I got from goodwill for 15$ and transferred the remaining 15$ (1500 Wii points) to my Wii U. This happened last month but still, yay me B-)

    Because the parents obviously had a good reason to do so.
