    image.jpeg Hi guys

    I just wanted to give a shout out to @gamesquest1
    I recently managed to brick my 3DS (long story!) but had fortunately taken a NAND backup. Problem was, I didn't have a hardmod or a whole lot of faith in my soldering skills to fit one!

    I asked @gamesquest1 for his services in getting the hardmod fitted, and I am extremely happy at the end result! The added port is so well done that it looks like it was always part of the 3DS and the console is back up and running and in its hackable 9.2 state.

    So a huge thank you to @gamesquest1, you are a credit to GBAtemp community!! :)

    The model is an N3DS XL

    nah somewhere between doing them a lot and the JST port being easier to do neatly :)

    That looks beautifully done. Any pictures of it opened up?

    I'm generally decent with soldering, but this is something I've been wary of tackling. The original 3DS is a bit packed together and I really don't want to mess it up, especially with my current lack of money. Luckily, with EmuNAND, I never touch my NAND, anyway.

    yeah i do the standard n3DS consoles too, but for US users i would suggest getting in touch with @hundshamer postage costs, shipping times etc etc would probably not be too good from the US to UK and back again
    well there was another post recently from some who had specifically asked for pictures before i closed it so there is some there (although is was neatened up a little more after i took that picture with the cable tucked under the motherboard)

    Nicely done. It's far cleaner and neater than most of the stuff I've done.
