    Not sure that would even be necessary you could just switch out the top and bottom covers but the inside looks really black not grey metallic black isnt the black US N3DS Inside a more grey metallic looking black color?

    A few problems:

    1. It doesn't say "GW" before the firmware version, so it's not in EmuNAND, it's on retail firmware
    2. GW doesn't work on 9.5 and I doubt he was able to get the un-obfuscated code from (Mr. X) AND one of the new keys from (Mr. Y) to get it working on N3DS

    My best guess is he either mobo swapped or he did region change it but applied it to SysNAND and now is locked out of GW :P

    Could the secret feature be EmuNAND region changing? Mebbe, there's no reason it couldn't be... :)

    Why go through the trouble of changing the whole MB it could just be a black US N3DS with a different battery cover and top cover from the other region console much easier to remove 6 screws and replace them then to go through hours of tedious work swapping MB's

    Yes it is
    It is a lot border with the 3ds than it was with ds and DSI which is why we probably haven't seen many case mod kits for them there were a lot of 3rd party shells for case modding in Ds and DSI scene barely any for 3ds

    It's actually hard as fuck. The little ribbons inside are really touchy about when they want to work or not. Oh, yeah, also, I swapped the mother boards. :rofl:

    It's actually a Valentine's day gift for my girlfriend, since she wanted a N3DS, but loved the look of the JPN Smash N3DS, so I went ahead and bought a US black console and swapped them yesterday.


    You see, it's easy to take it apart... putting it back together again is a whole different story. :yay:

    If you search YouTube for DS and DSI case mods you get a lot of results if you look for 3ds case mods you find like none

    Pffff, no. :rofl:

    I hate pirating things, plus I like collecting the physical carts. I'm only waiting for Gateway so I can have region free on my NORMAL sized JP N3DS.
