New to these forums, seems like my question belonged here. Hi all. Heres my problem, I have a regular fat ds that I'm more than happy with along w/an m3 and passcard. I honestly prefer the structure of a ds to a lite but recently found out you can update the firmware through flashme to have the lite settings w/better battery life/brightness but only w/the newer models w/us firmware v5+. So here I am trying to find a new fat ds thats gonna work for me. Through browsing all I could find to identify the ds firmware version is by actually having the console and checking through the pictochat thing and so on. I've gone out and had to buy/return 3 ds's now looking for a version that will actually work. Is there any thing on the outside packaging that would note a newer and compatible ds w/the flash me v7 firmware to put on lite features. Either that or just a lead as to which specific color or model to look for so that I'm not just buying/returning. Also dates as to when nintendo made it's firmware revisions would be appreciated.
