    NOTE: The 3DS I bought was from Walmart. I got the warranty with it but it does NOT go to Nintendo.

    Does having CFW void my warranty? (I've broke my o3ds I used to have and had homebrew on it. I didn't have the SD card in it so they never gave it back for that reason)

    you would a have to look at the terms and conditions,
    skim through it until you find something like
    "Warranty Void If" or something.

    but honestly it is probably voided

    Technically yes. Depending on what you did exactly, they might not be able to tell. If there's an active A9LH installation, then they can probably tell.

    I just skimmed through the terms and conditions, and it said nothing about "Warranty Void If" on any of the electronics. It isn't even under the manufacture's warranty. I always take out my SD card when I send it in for repairs.

    How so? The worst they can legally do is give it back without repairing it if the warranty is broken.

    Most of the time if you break your portable electronics and you bought the walmart insurance they just refund you the money you paid on a gift card to buy another one. This has happened to me at least 5 times. They've yet to repair anything I've filed a claim on.

    If it's Wal-Mart's warranty I'm sure if you take it in store to customer service they are just going to tell you to go to electronics and get a new one for exchange. Unless you want your money back then they will probably just give you the cash.

    Did you not read their replies? Walmart don't give a shit about CFW, they're not gonna do more than maybe a cursory glance to make sure it's the unit they sold you and if it's really broken, then give you a new one or money back depending on the specific plan you bought.

    *sigh*
    They repaired it for me, I had homebrew on it. I never had my SD card in my 3DS when I sent it in. Also, I'm sure they will only replace it if the motherboard was broken, had a firmware problem, or you fucking smashed it into little pieces.

    Last time I checked Wal mart Employees aren't trained to fix Nintendo products. They would just replace it if anything. And yeah I'm pretty sure CFW would breach the terms of the agreement.
