How do i hard-reset my 3ds?

  1. I bought a 3ds at gamestop, and when I tried to access the internet, it had parental controls from the previous owner. I cant figure out the pin number, so I need some way to hard reset it.

  1. You can do so this way:
    1.Go to system memory
    2.Format System Memory

    All data will be lost so copy everything to your Sd card but exert it b4 anything

    Version will be the same

  2. You need the parental controls PIN to access the format system memory option. The first answer is the only way.
