    I just got myself a DSi, and it's a US-version DSi. However, I live in the UK (yes, I know, I should've just got a UK one, price difference etc.), and I was wondering if it was possible to flash the firmware with the EU version (1.3U to 1.3E), or if it would ever be possible in the foreseeable future?

    Also, as an additional question, not really flashcart/firmware-related, but are EU Nintendo Points usable on the US Wii/DS Shops?

    Dude, be happy.
    I've got an European DSi, but the Dsiware of an US DSi is way better.

    ...Though getting Nintendo Points might be difficult...
