    awhile ago i put a piece a tape on my m3 because my contacts weren't touching. and today when i took my m3 out because of the new Pokemon freeze issue fix and i didn't notice the tape wasnt on there it was still in slot 1 and when i put my in i had to shove it because i thought was wrong when i took out the m3 i saw that the tape was under the contacts and if i took it out the contacts would all rip out. [​IMG] can Nintendo tell if used a flashcard on my ds and would they charge to fix it if it was out of warranty

    If you send it to Nintendo, they will see youve used a flashcart and fine you for millions of dollars and take your DS and send you to jail.

    If you send it to Nintendo they'll rip the tape and send your broken DS with a "Fuck you" note.

    Use tweezers and take the tape very slowly!

    When you insert a flashcart into a NDS, it creates a ticket, similar to the ticket style system found on the Wii. This ticket is kept in the BIOS of the system. When Nintendo connects it to their diagnostic systems, they will see the ticket is in there, and will know which flashcart you used and how many times you used it.

    I just hope you didn't send it in yet...

    In a slightly unrelated note, a guy sent a Wii in to be repaired once that had homebrew channel and got a bill back for £150 (almost the price of a new one).

    So being in line with Nintendos track record, yes, they'll charge you if they find out.

    As long as you didn't use your flashcart to do modifications to the DS itself (like flashing it), I'm rather confident Nintendo can't tell. Regardless, flashcarts are legal in most places, they're just commonly used for illegal doings.

    Still, Nintendo is overpriced when it comes to repairs and most repairs can be done by yourself with rather thorough internet guides.

    And next time anyone feels like posting bullshit information just to be a dick or to be funny, remember that the magical warning bar can go up at any time. Make useful posts in forum sections like these or don't post at all.

    Exactly..

    Either try to post constructive and make legit posts, or go to the EOF to joke around, but please, don't post crap around the serious forum sections.
