    Hi im to start im really dam sorry for asking this question as its probably been asked and answered amillions times but my brain just cant for some love of poor jesus get around the random comprehensive search results.
    Anyway the question is .How can you change the brightness levels on the old fat Ds? ive read alsorts about flashme this flashme that and its all pretty confusing as im new to the scene, just got an m3 simply today just waiting on a microSD card to come now.

    Anyhow thanks for any and all replys n such. [​IMG]

    You can't unless your DS is one of the rare European models. I was lucky to get my hands on one of those when my brother asked me to flash a unit of his friend's ... They're rare as heck, though.

    I think the only way you can check a DS Version is with the Flash-Me stuff but it may be another solution..

    To check yo firmware, insert your legit DS card into the DS. Boot up pictochat and go to room A. Remove the DS card, and a color will come onto the screen. There are different colors for every firmware...ndshb.com has some info about it. Look around it. [​IMG]

    If you take a look at the website posted above and looked at the list, you would know that you have a DS Lite.

    (the DS Lite currently has only 1 firmware version, the IQueDS only has 1 firmware version, and the phat ds/flashme have multiple versions)

    Would using noflashmelite on a DS phat make these settings possible?

    Yes, if your DS Phat has the PWC (Power Management Chip). Use LoveLite to find it out. [​IMG]
