Topic: 3DS demo pod home screen button combination

Posts 1 to 7 of 7


Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you knew the combination to get to the home screen on a locked demo pod. I work in a store with 2 3DSes in a pod and want to turn on streetpass on both to get the hype going. But the people that installed the pod didn't include a manual or anything.
thx in advance.

We used to have a normal unit 'till they supplied us with a demo pod. But like I said, The ds'es are blocked so you can only play the games that are insterted. I really need the button combo to get to the home screen to turn on the streetpass fucntion. Need to give people some incentive to walk around with their handhelds.

For those of you stinkers that have Best Buys with 3DS demos and want to look at the home menu even though you think you can't, this guy who obviously had way to much time with the system has an answer.
All you have to do is:
Hold the power button until the 3DS is off.
Press and hold simultaneously the following buttons for 3 seconds: start, select, L, and R.
Press the power button and a menu should pop up on screen that asks about a StreetPass feature.
Press the home button to go to the menu.

Meowph, that's right!

Great thanks, I've seen the button combo before, but they never said to press the power button afterwards .
It worked and I thank you

Huzzah! I never knew you could even do such a thing. That is amazing.
