    anyone ever heard of a bricked DS?
    like running a bad rom/emulator and having DS bricked?
    i saw a video of a PSP getting bricked and i have downloaded some DS roms but I am a little frightened my DS may get bricked.
    I have a DS lite and I am using an R4DS cart. thanks!

    Me and my friends have downloaded all kind of homebrew/roms and tried it on our DS-Xtremes, and everything still works 100% today.

    There's a small, nearly impossible chance to brick your DS from ROMs.

    Just flash your DS. Then the fail safe prevents a brick.

    In the 9 months I've been registered here at GBAtemp I haven't seen anyone fall victim to the bricker, but several people have bricked their DS trying to flash it.
