    Well, basically I was flashing a fat DS for a friend, and we pulled the PassMe device. Now, every time we try to push a normal game inside, it doesn't hold in there, as the game is instantly thrown outside.

    While I know that I need to open the DS in order to fix this, I don't know what exactly I need to do inside, in order to fix this problem. Can anyone help me with it?

    The spring is a tricky thing (mine is currently absent from my DS, partially by choice though).
    First get a watchmakers screwdriver or a toothpick (basically something small and fairly rigid), a torch and seeing if you can tweak the spring/plastic holder back to how it should be.
    Alternatively (or if the method above does not work) the spring is enclosed under the DS cart slot: this will have to be desoldered if you wish to get at it and then you can re-set the spring.

    There's no way to fix it that doesn't require soldering? I don't really like doing that kind of thing....

    Tuxedo: He did suggest a method that doesn't need soldering:

    You say "We pulled the PassMe device", meaning, both of you pulled it or you dont want the full blame? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] hey, I am not a native english speaker, and therefore my english is not perfect.

    I understood when the other guy said:

    But what is "a torch" supposed to be, and how can I use it? I know about a fire torch, but I doubt your talking about that. >_>

    Apparently it's the british term. Not too sure about that, so don't quote me on it. [​IMG]

    Hum, just gave it a try, but I still can't manage to do it. Basically, it looks like this:

    _______________________
    | |___________________| |
    __|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|__

    With the connections in the lower part, and a stuck black piece on the upper one. I think I would need to pull that black piece, but I can't find an effective way to do such task. Any ideas?
