    If it's an uncommon type, a link to where I may purchase one on amazon would be appreciated.

    im willing to bet it will prob be a mini-phillips or something more common cuz they tend to be pretty good at at least making the battery compartment accessible to most people without the tri-tip

    can't we transfer files through windows now with the new 3DS?

    it would help for dumping launcher.dat s as i'd rather not unscrew all the time.

    We can, but I need to replace the SD card at least once.

    It's only 2 screws lol, to be honest they didn't include a charger... They sure as hell won't be giving you a screw driver :glare:

    a system simlar to how laptop batteries are generally held in would be nice... could have put it in place of the now removed wireless switch.
