    I think you only need a phillips for a DSi, atleast to open it for sure, because, I have opened mine using a phillips before. And messed around a bit inside with the phillips. That being said, unless you're really confident in what you are doing, I would recomend having someonelse (a proffesional) do it.

    I would recommend a tutorial video. Me and my dad almost broke my DS Lite without using one. If you can't find a video, use common sense, and don't rush.

    DON'T GET EYECANDY ONES

    It cracks easily. the only good one they have is chrome but it's a bit more expensive and the parts are hard to reassemble compared to the other ones for some reason.

    Plus it gets all scratched up easily and let's not start with the fingerprints. Oh and the paint on the buttons fade easily to sweat (the power indicator, "start" "select", the lines on the D-pad. everything)

    I decided to buy a white case from DX and mix it with the black one that it was originally

    Edit: As for taking apart, be careful with the touchscreen digitizer ribbon, it's very thin and fragile. and also the mic wire. fragile too....

    What do you mean, hologram? The one with the blue waves on the top?

    it's not bad but it's not the best color either [​IMG]
