    First of all, there were really only 2 brickers ever made, and they're not circulated much anymore.
    Second, if you install FlashMe on your DS, it has built-in protection against programs that try to brick your DS. I don't think there is any program that actually checks roms for bricking.

    Most antivirus programs have Trojan.DSBrick.A and Trojan.DSBrick.B loaded into their signatures. Scanning homebrew like you would scan a normal file would find the trojans if they exist in the ROM.

    most of the new bios ndsl have only certain parts of the firmware unprotected. flashme really isn't needed anymore unless you want to skip the h&s screen on a ndsl. dslazy has a scanner for the bricker sig.
