    Hello everyone at this wondefull site.

    So I have this question that I can't seem to find any answer to anywhere, my DS lite gets very varm (not enough to hurt you) on the right side where you have
    your right thumb or where the buttons are and nearby. Is this normal? or is it something wrong with my DS. I can add that otherwise its working fine.
    My first DS so Im a little nervous ^^

    Download this homebrew called Diagnose and it will tell you the Temperature of your DS.

    I went to check and it was at 39-42 but It wasnt that hot as it is while playing so I went to play some under the knife 2 and then quickly rebooted and checked again.
    and its at 46-48 celcius mostly 48.

    Mine sometimes gets a little warm, probably just a warm room and too much gaming.

    What flashcart are you using? That might be the cause.

    OMG You got to be kidding me. Mine is 23-25 Celcius. Yes your DS is HOT. For me the most was 28 Celcius.

    EDIT: Right now for me its 19C.

    Hopefully thats the problem then, I will get the answer to that in some days atleast, worst case scenario its the DS itself.

    Might be wrong, but I've also heard that the chinese M3 DS Reals(fake ones) have a possiblity of flaming the DS, if you get what I mean.

    Looks like it might be time for a new DS then...you could always keep your old one and use it as a novel way to fry your eggs!
