    Only if you cheat, that is. I don't think nintendo can identify a flashcart from a retail game on a dsi or prior systems in the family.

    And also, there's no way nintendo is going to block/brick your friends console just because he/she uses a flashcart. Maybe the seller meant blocking the r4 through dsi's firmware updates?

    i haven't read about anyone being blocked for cheating with ds games. i've only heard about wii systems being blocked for cheating. i play the mario kart track hack online all the time, i've easily played hundreds of games and never had a problem.

    the reason the kid can't get online is because he has no idea how to set up WIFI for the ds or there is a hardware problem with his ds.
