    GM9 cannot fix a complete softbrick, also known as bootrom error. A modified version of this procedure could even fix an MCU brick, there's a person somewhere willing to perform an experimental procedure to flash the MCU FW back.

    What kind of tinning flux do you use?

    Doesn't really matter, as long as you don't use any with acid. The wires he recommended come pre-tinned, so you don't really even need it if you're using those.

    Hmm, I wonder if I should go for a micro-USB based connection rather than a butt-connector based connection...

    @TheToaster The O3DS's NAND and pinouts are not on the opposite side of the motherboard. A flip is not neccessary, unless you plan to use the alternate CLK point.
    Also, Plailect's Guide no longer has data on the NAND sizes. You can still find it with the wayback machine, though.

    the (small) o3ds clk point is on the reverse, the one on the top of the board is hidden under the cart slot, personally I would prefer to remove the board than remove the whole cart slot

    that said there is a very rare revision of the small o3ds which does indeed have an extra CLK point by the rest of the pinouts

    this is a good point though, the REV 2 board should probably be mentioned, here is a picture to show the difference

    Yes, but it isn't totally tested.

    Hello. I attempted this hard mod to my old 3DS XL today. Everything went well, the system turns on just fine without the SD adapter connected, but when I reboot it with the adapter, I get the 400 error code. Everything still works great after disconnecting the adapter.

    Can anybody who modded an O3DS and used the wires he recommended show me their butt connector mounting point? I can't find a good place. Only people who used the ones that he recommended.

    There is an error in your "old 3DS" section of the guide that no one has ever caught that caused me a brick. Possibly just a half brick because my 3DS is hanging after any app launch and at one point it said (SD card has the no write lock on) even though there was no SD card in it.

    Anyways, look at the comparison between the drawn lines on the SD card adapter pins (left image) and the actual soldered lines (right image) and you'll see what I mean. Whoops.... How did that slip by and guess which one I followed? >_<

    My soldering skills are flawless. It's a shame I wasn't told how to properly do this because of a badly written faq.

    Anyone want a booterror o3ds for parts? $30 shipped but I keep the battery. Lol
    Fuck this guide.
