    I was just wondering if the official DSTT or maybe an alternative checks to see if the roms contain a virus before loading.

    yes you get a rom loading error if you run a bad rom but if your planning to buy a dstt i think you shouldnt because its not that great you should get an acekard 2i or mm3i zero

    I already have a dstt, I was just wondering in case I get a rom that is a virus. Its good to no the the firmware has a built in virus detector so I don't brick my ds.

    If you download a "rom with a virus" your computer would get infected before your DSTT. o_o

    Just download from a reliable source and you will be fine.

    There are no viruses for the DS. There is a trojan though, which bricks older DS's. r0mloader.nds and taihen.nds.

    I think moonlight made something too, but I haven't seen it around.

    also if you're paranoid about getting a fake rom with the trojan in it, you could use a rom trimmer that can scan your roms for it. Only one I know of it NDSTokyoTrim.

    downloadable from here. http://techsuki.net/nintendo-ds-rom-trimmer/

    Moonshell 2, actually, and the bricker trojans can't brick DS lites or DSi's.
    So unless you have a phat, don't stress.

    I have heard of ds lites getting bricked by the trojan, where are you getting this information of the virus not affecting dslites.

    ... Well, you need to short the SL-1 contacts to overwrite the firmware, down't you?
    I don't know who told me, but he (a several-thousand-post person in the FlashMe section) said that only the user-settings can be erased without shorting the contact.
    Am I wrong then?
