For those who purchased the capture kits for the new 3DS or the new 3DSXL from us (before November 2016), we will replace your board with a new capture board.
There were some minor internal improvements, but the major external improvement is in the USB socket, which is now more robust, more reliable, and more aesthetic.
The old capture board (left in the picture) has more trimmed from both sides and a smaller hole, which strains the board and leads to the USB connector being unrecognized.
To the right is the new board. It has more material on both sides and more soldering on the USB connector so that it is more robust and won’t come off easily.
The hole itself is larger, which puts less strain on the board. We have already seen a decreased defect rate with the new board.
The bottom case also has additional processing to create less burden.
