    Same as before...

    Test the F1 and F2 fuse, search for a pic in the forum.

    if its blow, bridge it.

    You might want to check your mini-sd card and the slot it goes into for bent and misaligned pins.
    This may have caused your brick.

    no way your system bricked just by playing brain age. there's no firmware writes in that game at all... can you not even boot your DS up with nothing in it?

    There's no firmware writes in ANY game.
    He's blown a fuse. Most likely due to a short from his flashcart/mini-SD.

    Do you get any power at all, do you get the power light?, if you do I very much doubt that you have blown the fuse, it must be something else.

    If you have blown a fuse make sure you find out what blew it before you bridge it. Otherwise you may end up blowing your DS completely as there'll be no fuse to save you this time.

    Recovery mode won't work if there is anything in the DS slot. Make sure there is nothing there, then retry recovery mode

    How about using rosin core solder instead of wire?

    Actually, WFC games do write something to the firmware (the WFC settings, that's why you don't have to enter them on every game)
