So I wanna mod my dsl. Its old. I bought it 2 years ago second hand from game stop after selling my ds phat. poor decision. So now i have a black dsl. It lasted about 7 months until i opened it once to change the music and the hinge snapped and flung pieces of it everywhere. The rest of the ds is fine except that the bottom screen is getting worn. Still plenty playable, but i HATE scratches. Heres a pic of the hinge. It flops around everywhere and only stays in the right place if im playing right side up cause i put epoxy on the top of the case and let it harden. I put the epoxy in the exact place where it would stop the ds like i was opening it normally and stopping it at the first click. This does not allow the Ds to open past here which is fine with me. But im getting tired of it. I im gonna go all out if im gonna fix it. I want to use this case. linky http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10860 Im also getting a tri wing screw driver cause you need one to open nintendo products.
