Hey,

O think my touch screen may be damaged. I calibrated it and everything seemed fine, the four squares in the corners responded to touch, but the middle upper part is kind of funky.
Like in colors, I try to draw a straight vertical line bottom to top, and when i get to the middle the line progressively slides right while the stylus is still centered.
My DS is fairly recent, so do you think this is an issue warranty will cover?

As long as your DS isn't older than a year you should be able to send it to Nintendo and get a replacement.

Nintendo has a fairly good customer support and your issue sounds more like a defective touch screen than a software problem to me. I haven't used 'colors' so I don't know if it's a known issue with it that occurs under some conditions.

Try calling them and explain your problem (leaving out the homebrew part) to one of their service employees before you send it, though.

That sounds exactly like mine.. from the middle and down , the screen is "uncalibrated" and the most left of the screen at the edge isnt "touchable" because when i hit those spots it hits like ½CM to the right.. :/ i'm thinking of getting it back to the shop, or maybe back to Nintendo? which do you think is best?

    Guess you could fit one in there.

    The contacts are there, and the device already has charge control circuitry, but you have to buy and solder the battery yourself.

    If it has a USB port, then you could perhaps try connecting a power bank.

    It has USB-C.
