    Well it was only a few VERY poorly made clones designed by total idiots and even with those clones it was still fairly rare. The N5 was the biggest offender though apparently some batches of the M3 DS Real had issues as well.

    So I just got a 3ds and I upgraded my dstwo to play on it, everything works fine.

    Now, I've heard about these rumors... what happens if I connect to nintendo WFC, like the eshop and all that while also having a dstwo? Could nintendo ban me? Brick my console?

    I haven't updated or connected to the internet yet because of that.

    Nothing will happen. This thread is about disproving the bricking rumor.

    What. No. It doesn't happen, neither on Wii (except a rare case involving Korean Wiis, but that's probably more of a fault that has to do with some wrong hacking methods, than a real bricking intention on Nintendo's part) or a 3DS.

    And it won't ever happen. EVER.

    People got it bricked as I heard by installing stuff that wasn't working,I seen it bricked,but I wasn't sure it was nintendo who did it.So i'm wrong but it could still get bricked by installing a menu for an older system version.

    Users' carelessness is their fault alone. Bricking a Wii by installing wrong stuff is just like pouring water on your 3DS. I wouldn't call that bricked, though. I'd call that BROKEN.

    well, my 3ds xl still works, even after accidentally putting in an antique flashcard that didnt support 3ds or anything. so, i guess they dont.
    however, i think it would not be impossible if they wanted it. they're not going to do it though

    Technically it's entirely possible, they'd just have to force an update that won't boot.

    But yeah, I don't think they'll do it.

    I had the same thought of when we get our WiiUs, if you happen to have a flashcart in when you do, will it see it and ban the pairing for any amount of time? Or maybe worse? Guess we will see sunday.

    If nintendo would do anything they would not allow you to use your Nintendo Network ID(Includes eShop).

    Way to bump an old topic :dry:
    Nintendo can't break the law, as simple as that, read the second post!
    And who wants a 3DS and never connect to the internet? It's one of the system's main features.

    wth are you smoking?!

    Pfffft, please read the 2nd post in this thread. It's not only about legal action, the bricking rumor is stupid as shit, nothing like this have happened before and neither will happen.

    What do you mean by also dsi dsiXL?? Seriously, grow up and come back when your old enough.
