    • Unscrew the four Phillips #00 screws along the top of the back cover.

    • The screws are held in place by locking washers, and will not come out of the back cover.

    • The comments section is full of unlucky souls who will tell you that the screws here through step 4 will strip incredibly easily. Press down fairly hard, and go slow.

    • Pull the back cover up and away from the rest of the device to remove it.

Anybody know where to buy replacement back covers for this original 3DS model? I’m finding that a lot of used 3DS’s from this era have 3rd party battery packs and the original cover is lost.
