    Yes, it's very simple.
    Open the DS with a Philips Enlarged Corkscrew?, try opening the battery case.
    When done, scratch off all stickers and melt the case a little bit with a lighter or a CE certified 60W glue gun.
    Under the battery is a 4x4 TÜV/RoHS certified screw, this time you need to melt it with a concentrated high-temperature(around ~1300 Celsius) lighter.
    Then when you finally opened up your NDS, place some wires randomly around some chips, solder them temporarily.
    Then turn it on and finally profit! [​IMG]
    Please try to take it serious. It does work, really!

    Very simple indeed.

    All I will say is if this is true it took far longer to happen than I expected (if nothing else it has practically been possible all with relatively simple GUI tools for well over a year) to say nothing of the relative immaturity of the scanning methods.

    Oh and if you are trying to find a way to get the firmware back on there is a hardware method
    Page search for
    ppflash.zip - Firmware recovery by parallel port. Soldering skills required!

    a few years ago, half way through the installation. I was hit in the arm, lost contact with the SL1 and it bricked, I renamed the file extension in dsorganize to .gba and flashed it to NOR on another nds. poped it in, and it booted directly to slot two.

    Yes, it will work on a slot two device, that is the reason I asked about it in this case. I just wanted to know if this method works on a fully bricked ds phat/lite.

    There are so few malicious DS files that there can't be any heuristics for it at all, only known threats.
    Don't limit it to just on Antivirus either, use virustotal.com to scan something using multiple virus databases.

    Fortunately, once you get past the first 5% or so, the recovery code has already been written as that is the first thing to be written by flashme.

    Please, tell me I'm wrong.
    How do any antivirus program will spot this malicious DS game code?
    DS games aren't coded the same way as any Windows/Linux/Mac/other applications and antivirus are meant to check codes that could harm theses environments, am I right?

    I can fully understand that somebody, that was bored and didn't have anything better to do, put his knowledge to work in something bizarre as this piece of garbage. But it was made to run on DSes, not on the OSes I cited before. I really can't see any antivirus spotting this garbage code...

    Again, I can be wrong.

    You are incorrect. Every ant-ivirus program I have tried (or now use) over the past few years recognizes Taihen and r0mloader variants I have stored on my computer.

    No, I don't use them for anything malicious, they're just there for curiosity's sake.

    Good old flashme ... even besides getting rid of that freakingly annoying health-screen (THE reason I updated it after I got a slot1 card), it's still so usefully. :-D

    One would have expected most flashcards would've a routine to identify it by now ... that is, if it's actually the same.

    Reminds me of the Dragon Quest game that was fake and bricked you DS. I would look into this, but you need a flash gba cart, which i would have to buy, plus there aren't too many more DS games to get either. for me, its like 3 more, and thats the end of the ds for me.

    If it was my ds, I would still put forth the effort to try it at the least, I mean hey... stranger things have happened right?

    Why would you intentionally brick a perfectly good Nintendo DS Phat like that?

    That's scary! Lets hope the dev of DSlazy updates the dsbrick.signature file so we know which roms are and aren't safe! Always download from the big scene-release rom sites, stay away from all sites with the name "warez" in 'em. Sorry to hear your ds got f--ked.

    I personally took this as a lesson and installed flashme on my ds phat. Hopefully CrashME isn't reposted under any other header or I could be in some trouble.

    Because if it is FlashMe'd it is protected from bricks. You can just boot into your slot-2 card and re-flashMe it.

    And that's actually why they used a fat... Anyone thinking of putting FlashMe on their lite to protect themselves from brickage needs to seriously read the docs and decide if they REALLY want DS firmware on their lite. You will lose the multiple brightness settings, you will never be able to install the original firmware to restore it, and I'm sure there are things I am forgetting.

    If you have a fat: read the docs, know the risks, and hell yes install FlashMe if you find those risks acceptable. If you have a lite, read those docs a little closer and the stories about brickage from shorting the wrong leads... You probably won't want to install it then.

    This question may have been answered, but I still don't think I got it:

    What if it were to happen to a DSi/XL?
