    On some firmware updates you do have to short the SL1 again. Can't understand why you'd have to do it if your still using flashme v7.

    You have to re-short on the DS Lite because flashme doesn't recognize the firmware.

    On the DS Phat, you do NOT have to re-short unless you are changing versions of flashme.

    You do still need to short the SL1 on the DS phat if you want to install Flashme_stealth 7 on a DS phat which already has Flashme 7 installed.

    Strange. I hotswapped stealth and standard flashmes on my old DS w/o reshorting plenty of times.

    I guess a cover-all answer would be "You might need to re-short SL1, it is not a bad thing if you have to, though."
