    My touch screen won't work so I'll have to send it in for repairs.

    Since I've already flashed it, should I uninstall it? I heard the DS Menu will crash if I do, so I guess the only other option is to install FlashMe Stealth.

    So which one should I do?

    I just got my replacement today. All I did was put in the Stealth Flashme. I believe you should go that route since it's safer.

    Alright thanks.

    Does someone know if anyone has been caught with FlashMe installed?

    I didn't bother uninstalling flashme or putting the stealth on, walmart took it back no trouble, I suppose nintendo could come a knocking at anytime... I'll be sure to keep one eye open [​IMG]

    Yeah, but I've had my DS Lite since launch and I doubt EB Games will take it back. = /

    Do you guys think I can still return it to target? I got a faulty speaker on mine and it's flashed.
    I got mine launch day and I don't know target's return policy. Do they get personal info on you?

    Only store that I know asks for a name and phone number is Fry's Electronics. I know because I used to work returns for the store.

    Same here. I've return things to many retail stores and rarely do they ask me for my personal info.

    As for the flashed DSL, I wonder wat would Nintendo do even if u just send it straight in. I mean u can simply say you told one of ur friend how annoying the health screen was, and he got rid of it for u. He know a lot about comps and stuff... blah.. blah... blah... And if they ask for contact info for the person, just say he moved and u lost he phone #. [​IMG]

    I just sent mine in to Nintendo with flashme stealth and my replacement arrived at my parents house. Anyway, they took it and replaced it no problem.

    I just got mine back from Nintendo, they sent me a REMANUFATCURED unit....um yea...not to happy about that....and my over paranoid ass is worried about the buttons they all seem a little...off....L&R seem higher than the rest...the d pad doesnt look like it sits perfectly...I am going to Walmart to exchange it for a new one...they take your name and info since I dont have a reciept but i don't really care. I got the box and stuff and thats all that matters I hope.

    I bought mine in July and the hinge cracked in August, I sent it back yesterday afternoon, it is flashed using flashme stealth so hopefully everything will be okay. I just hope I get a new unit and not a refurbished of something.

    The white DSL i got back was refurbished, but it was perfect with no dead pixels or scratches or anything.

    Oh boy that nintendo warrenty repair form has so much personal information needed.

    I guess I'll just flash this baby with stealth and pray....unless someone has another idea?

    Yeah just send it in with flashme stealth. I don't think they actually check. The worst thing they can do is say its not under warranty and send it back to you. It's not like you can get arrested or anything.
