Hold power button, or smash 3DS against wall. Your call.

So much for mods saying that there are no random mods.
I'd say they're all bi-polar at the least, or just do a lazy job.

My ipod (Touch) locks up like a bazillion times a week. Well, 1-2 times a month. But still.

Actually, my android phone and my ipod touch freezes far more than the 3DS. The only time my 3DS froze was when I was using Netflix, but the Netflix programming is pretty poor, so it's understandable.
