    Sounds like they updated the console when it was on 2.1 while trying to install hax or something like that.
    I might be wrong though.

    remember, its a n3ds xl, if it had been updated while on 2.1, it wouldnt be turning on

    it sounds more like a botched downgrade to me

    if this was truly a botched downgrade, you can probably ask the seller for a nand dump, and hardmod restore it yourself...

    i wouldnt reccomend this one in any form because of its problems. IMO, your better off just searching ebay for just the motherboard, you dont need a whole new system.

    or buy one with like a broken shoulder button, missing buttons, etc, if you only need its motherboard.

    point is, buying with a physical outer defect is fine, but never buy one with a software defect

    A broken New3ds xl costs on ebay around 50€ and just the Board costs 75€ ;)
    I think I will have to wait until someone sells a broken 3ds on ebay :/

    I doubt you'll find one for 50 euro's since most of those are auctions, i'd recommend getting this.
