    Modding it in what sense? Physical modifications, such as case mods? Or software modifications such as running custom firmware in order to use homebrew?

    The extent of software modifications would be to run homebrew and backups of games (whether you own the game originally or not). What actually classifies as homebrew is a broad spectrum of things. From emulators to things that are 100% custom made. There would probably be "addons", save editors, game modifications, etc.

    Red can give you a more accurate list of what is and isn't available.

    Save editors, emulators, theme switching, backing up your own game card, playing backups without the original card in the system, ability to mount the system disk, backup nand and more are available now. If that's what you're looking for.
