    SO i did a case replacement on my DS lite last spring because the original one cracked and left me with a flimsy ds [​IMG]
    Well i finished up the case mod a little into summer and so far so good, until yesterday when i was playing and i realized that i could see cracks and weak spots in the exact same spot on the hinge.
    I dont get it, i bought a case and a brand new cam shaft too.
    Its only been 5 months and its already in need of repair/replacement?
    Am i doing it wrong? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    what kind of case did you get??
    I'm asking because I bought a cheap one off amazon and it was one of the cheapest crap I've ever bought
    none of the buttons fit right and I think the case fuked up my flat wire,
    but, I've heard the shock case was pretty good but I haven't tried it myself

    I'll probably buy a magnum chrome for my ds lite

    Are you leaving the lid open in any position other than the two "lock" positions for long periods of time?

    Well @RoMee: I got a cheap DX clear plastic one, theres my first clue huh. But i just wanted a nice clear plastic case [​IMG] and it did the job, stuff fit nicely and the only problem i forsaw was that the case was just a smidge tight. just a hair.

    @VA: No [​IMG] just open and close [​IMG]

    See i think the DS lite and the DSi are built so simularly they didnt fix the problem but i feel like the DSiXL should (SHOULD) be in the clear.
