    In this video, I'm going to be using a normal 3DS, but this will also work just the same on a 3DS XL.
    If we have not already, we must open up the device and turn it on with the power button.

    The reason we're going to want to use a theme is because it adds personalization to our 3DS.
    What a theme does is, change the color or other effects of our home screen on our 3DS.
