    So, story time. back in about 2010 I was using an Action Replay DS on the DSi, and plugged the action replay into the computer while the system was powered on. Somehow, this caused the NAND brick seen here. Is there anyway to fix this, hardmod or otherwise?

    You probably fried it with overvoltage but that's just a guess. I'm more certain there's nothing you can do to fix it short of replacing the MB. Would be easier just to replace it with another DSi or 3DS.

    Alright, good to know. I already have another DSi and 2 3DSs, so I'm good. :P

    I've fixed a DSI before with this same problem by simply replacing the Wi-Fi board,

    However i've also had a few with the same problem which were not fixable, so would only recommend trying it with a Wi-Fi board if you have a spare one rather than paying for one.
