    someone accidentally updated my 3ds and so I couldn't go on gateway. so I called GameStop and told them it wouldn't turn on and they said they'd give me a new one for free. so, I'm trying to brick it. anyway?

    here's one way to do it (though I'm sure it will cause something when going to gamestop)

    1) Turn on your 3DS
    2) Find a toilet
    3) Drop 3ds in toilet
    4) watch as it dies

    Too bad you can't launch someone else A9LH installer *.3dsx.

    You don't have access to anything except userland. You can't do anything to brick in userland.
    You've got to kick it until it does not work. :lol:

    That's not true. You can mess with i2c registers and brick it iirc.

    That's quite rude to do, considering that It's your fault for leaving the console in a place where kids could mess it up

    But since you need to give your piece of plastic back to Gamestop, if I was you I would attempt a hardmod.

    If you succeed, you won't have to give it back and you can downgrade.

    If not, you bricked your 3DS.
