Kinda gets annoying after a while
nope,it's in the ds,but if it's in a game,someone could hack it,but who cares
Actually you can, but you need to flash the DS which will void your warranty. And there's a lot of important steps involved or you can brick your DS.
Bricking your DS is possible with the FlashMe installation, yes, but as long as you know what you're doing and don't blindly start poking metal bits everywhere, the risk of bricking is very low. Most brickings occur when people don't take any precautions whatsoever when it's relatively easy to research what the risks are and how to easily counteract them.
So does anyone have a tutorial of it that's easy to understand? Just so I can gauge whether I can do it or not heh
GBAtemp flashme guide:
They say lots of steps but it amounts to add flashme.nds to cart
do what it says (make sure to insulate the shorting tool).
DS lites are more prone to problems but as mentioned if you read the guide it is simple enough, original DS models you would have to actually work at to brick.
Just to add there is a "stealth" version the leaves the screen intact but is otherwise identical, you want the normal version.
For SLOT-1 card users, I'd actually recommend that you use the "No autoboot" version. The normal version will boot SLOT-2 instead of SLOT-1 if it finds DS code on that cart; I sometimes flash DS homebrew to my 3-in-1 (stuff like the DS port of Heretic, which was never updated to use SLOT-1 cards), and it would be a drag to have my DS boot to SLOT-2 all the time for that reason. The no autoboot version will allow you to boot SLOT-1 as usual regardless of what's in SLOT-2; it will only boot from SLOT-2 when you hold Select. However, if you don't own or ever plan on getting a SLOT-2 device, it shouldn't make a difference which you use.
I would suggest not flashing your ds, its not worth it, at all.
Just live with the extra second of healthscreen.
I would not recommend to flash your DS either.
I've flashed about 5 or 6 DSs, but it was a necessity because at the time there was no slot 1 solution.
And it was tricky too because you needed some kind of pass me device which would then let you boot code from the slot 2.
And as a side benefit you could choose to bypass the health screen.
Nowadays it's as easy as running homebrew from your slot 1 card, just being careful when shorting the littke screw near the battery of your DS, but again I wouldn't do it just to get rid of the health screen, it's not enough of a motivation that justifies a possibly brick-risking operation.
Well one tap isnt gonna kill you. I recommend NOT flashing your ds. You can brick it.
You can do it without installing FlashMe if you don't care about PictoChat or download play. The method is fully reversible:
Ayt, thanks for the replies guys. Seems like too much of a bother and risk to try...so I won't. Thanks tho, I learned much
