CCC Says: "It's time. Those of us who enjoy import games have put it off long enough. We waited, hoping for a miracle. That Nintendo would reverse its region-locking policy with a patch, perhaps, or that a third party peripheral manufacturer would create a region-unlocking device. That isn't happening, and the most recently discovered means of removing a 3DS' region lock involves a DS flashcard, Gateway 3DS firmware, and a chance of completely and utterly bricking your system.
You do not want to brick your system."
