    1. Get a brick
    2. Apply vigorously to DS


    There are two other ways that I know of. First, there is the bricker that Darkfader wrote, which deletes the unprotected part of the DS's firmware (FlashMe protects from this by placing recovery code in the protected area of the firmware; a flashed DS can still be bricked this way, but it can be fixed). The other is to blow the fuse in the DS. Crappy clone flashcarts such as the N5 have been known to do this.

    1) take DS apart, exposing the mother board
    2) get arresed for public exposure
    3) ...
    4) PROFIT!!!

    No but really, do step 1, then pee all over it... then before your pee dries, take a lamp, cut the cord, plug the cord in, and touch the exposed wires to the DS motherboard.

    THAT'LL BRICK IT!

    Or you could just huck it out a very high window, or drop it in a toilet, or install PSP firmware to it!

    Just screw up the flashme procedure...

    Or cause a short circuit by jamming foil inside the slot-1.

    build a crappy flashing tool that crashes the DS before or just as the 3% mark is reached. I know of someone who did just that. And he even tested it and had it crash. So he Darwined his DS.

    There's a huge chance he wants to brick someone else's DS, as for the reason, it's probably for revenge, that or forthelulz.

    Or (s)he wants to exchange a working unit for a new one, but the warranty requires that the old one be broken, and not by force.
