    Also, you can fix your DS by performing the BIOS-swap trick!
    This is relatively easy to perform in comparison with ppflash, might be good to add on the front page..

    We live in 2011. A Flashme version with full DS Lite support has been out for over four years.


    Also, I think I read that newer DS Lite revisions protect more of their BIOS flash.

    Nothing will happen. The firmware/encryption is not alike.

    if someone asks why someone make this code it is easy just 5-10 lines.

    Also after that everyone can injekt a new arm7 file into a nds. It do not even take a min. Anyway be happy it was a only this virus I know someone who made (only made never released (only on some chat)) that is better than this some facts about this (better) Virus

    It has an injekter that injekt it into ds files and add data that restor the original crc32 (crc64 is of cause different)

    destroy some hw (I don't know how that work and I won't test it)

    if a emulater was used the payload is not executed the game start normaly if it is started on an real ds it need some time but than it starts normaly as well but may crash at some points. But as soon as you restart the ds it is bricked

    has change code every time you use the injektor so it bypass all trys to detect this in a never tested file

    ther is more but I forgott that sorry and i don't have the file anymore.

    That makes it very hard to believe your story.

    [Removed by Staff -- please don't post that sort of code here.]

    ok the result is the same more than 10 lines but still easy and the 10 lines are not for the better one only for the original

    Actually, I have a DS Phat that was bricker proof right out of the box. (SL1 shorting was required for 100% of the Flashme installation, not just 25%, which also means it would have needed to be shorted, to brick the firmware as well.)

    Ah. I haven't looked at FlashMe since I flashed my fat, and decided I didn't want to lose my briteness settings on my lite and Slot 1 carts had made it mostly unnecessary. I honestly never looked at it again... Maybe I'll finally flash my lite then. Thanks. :-D

    So the DSi/XL's are COMPLETELY safe from these bricking programs?

    Anything can brick if just the right circumstances happen to appear. But as for the DS/DSL brickers, no.

    You can download your rom from whatever warez source you find, but just make sure you check it with a trusted dat file, before installing on your flash card. I use no-intro. Your rom will be checked by CRC32, MD5, and SHA1. If it passes all 3 checks, you can bet your first-born son the rom is good. [​IMG]

    That's what you get for not protecting your DS and being lazy.

    See what I did there?

    One tip: You shouldn't download a game that is a known Crashme file.

    Yes, I know you've replied to people saying you were wrong in what you said but I want to add one interesting thing that you likely don't know about FlashMe on a DS Phat:

    From what I have read, later in the production of the DS Phat, before it got discontinued but when the Lite was already in production, Nintendo was using a different LCD module for the screen, and it actually had a variable backlight in it, just like the Lite. So by installing the newest version of FlashMe on your Phat, you could potentially get the same 4 level backlight as the Lite. If it didn't have the right LCD module, then you don't get it; just on and off.

    But FlashMe had been in v.7 when I got it, I think, which had DS Lite support on it. I still have all 4 levels of back light on it.

    Actually, the advice should be: "download your ROM's from sites that already have a reputation behind them, not ones that scream "hey, download your virus HERE!" and you'll be fine".

    Seriously, I have no idea how many ROM's I already played on my DS and never had any problems whatsoever. Where'd you even GET that bricker? I thought these were purged from the internet by now. There's only 2 of them afterall.
