    Does this mean that if I have successfully flashed FlashMe, that if I try installing a newer version and fuck up, it will still be able to recover? Last time I had FWNitro, booted directly to card, ran flashme, failed at about 2% and it ruined my DS (Fail Safe didnt work) is this not the same since I would now be using Flashme7 and be upgrading to flashme8?

    Is Flashme8 even worth installing? Thanks!

    (Basically I want to know if the failsafe in flashme will always work)

    The biggest difference for me with the new FlashMe v8a is the ability to choose different versions. You can choose between having it boot up straight to slot-2, or boot up straight to the firmware, etc.

    That's the only reason I installed FlashMe v8a over FlashMe v7.

    Choose a different file off the website. They're labeled (Flashme, Flashmestealth, flashmenon autoboot.nds, etc)

    There are many bug fixes with flashing a DS lite, it will now recognise the firmware (so the uninstaller will work) also, version 7 made your DS lite freeze when starting up Download Play and Pictochat, this is also fix'd

    When I was upgrading from v7 to v8a my ds lite shut off about 6 times and booted back fine. Although this happened to me the first time I flashed my ds lite, so I can't say if its the recovery option or just luck [​IMG]

    Yes, the recovery code (partially) supports slot1 and slot2, so it would be safer for slot1 owners.

    Mine has flashme v7 and does not do either of those [​IMG]

    I need to flash one of my friends soon with my slot one wondering how safe it is with v8 aswell?

    Risk assessment anyone ?

    shall we say 10% of brickage?

    Only if you used the wrong version of FlashMe v7.
