    Took it out of the nerf armor for only like a week, keeping it in perfect shape, and one of the hinges cracked badly :/

    It kinda sucks I have to shell out $130 after having this since launch.

    If I buy a new DS Lite, will it have any kind of piracy block? I have an R4...and hope it still works if I buy a new DS...I also have an ez flash 1 in 3 or whatever :/

    Thanks....

    P.S. Does anyone know if there are any sales for the DS in store [target walmart etc.]?

    All DSLs can use an R4... you will only get into problems if you buy a DSi

    Screw the DSi, bunch of trash [​IMG]

    Question about my EZ Flash 3 in 1 GBA flash cart. Is it possible to switch the casing with whatever a new DS Lite comes with? I don't know if it is...and it would actually match. Mines white and would look ugly with black or whatever.

    you could buy a case from DX and replace it yourself ..bit fiddly but can be done [​IMG]

    or sell it for spares on here or someone else to re case and use the money towards a new DS lite [​IMG]

    Haha, I suck at casings >_< I tried my Wii, it failed, miserably, LOL.

    I'm just going to dish out the money, it ain't too bad, I'll get it back eventually.

    I guess the GBA Flash case switching wouldn't work with a dust cover...Insides of the casing are different.

    I don't know if the insides of the casings are the same, but you could try the M3 GBA Expansion pak casings.. They're sold in white, black, transparent, pink and so on... ^^"
    But I can't say if they work since I only have 2 M3 paks, one in black and one in white. ^^"

    Hmmm...

    I want to order a limited edition JP DS lite just for the hell of it, I got nothing else to spend my money on.

    Would my R4 work on it? I'm pretty sure the DS Lite is region free..
