    It turned itself off at 1% and won't boot up anymore despite various attempts at holding down different buttons and booting it up that way, hmm.

    The problem is, I purchased it from a guy who won it in a competition, so there's absolutely no way I can return it. Is there anywhere in the UK I can send it to to get it fixed? Or any other suggestions short of throwing it into the bin would be very welcome, thank you.

    Yup, I think that was the problem nintendofreak!

    I fixed it by holding a, b, start, select and then powering it on, I then proceeded to continue the flash process using a mixture of a cocktail stick, tin foil and masking tape, again thanks to the #NDSTemp guys, worked a treat!

    When I flashed my lite the first thing I made sure of was the screwdriver was instulated. It also had tin foil at the end and flashed the ds lite no problems. I almost flashed my DS lite with a small screwdriver I picked up by accident [​IMG]

    You scared the ba-jesus outta me. I'm getting a bit anxious about flashing my lite. My G6 lite is pre-ordered and my passkey2 is on its way. It's really good to know that it can be recovered even at 1%.

    Enjoy your new flash(ed) light! [​IMG]
