    Hi I'm just wondering if in any way using win2DS can brick my NDSL. A friend of mine pointed out that the DS has like 67mhz and that it would not be enough to keep up with whats going on with the comp...So can it happen?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Gambia, The
    Bricking does not result from overstressing the processor, the data will just not be processed as fast. The DS processor is not designed to overclock itself to deal with any stress handed to it.
    The major cause of bricking is either short-circuiting some component inside the DS (blowing a fuse in the process) or overwriting the DS firmware.

    Yeah, as fat D said, unless you change the actual firmware of the ds, or somehow destroy/modify any of the hardware, there is virtually no chance of bricking.
