    I found some days ago reports about clone DS Systems from China, apparently they play all DS and GBA games, but the case has a lower quality.
    Well, I wanted to ask if someone could give some more informations or maybe links? I mean, they clone the ARM Chip of the DS Lite? Maybe some images of the boards of the clone system, that would be awesome.

    anyway, here some Links:

    it's only a refurbished DS. Its board is original, the case, screens and buttons are from other sources.

    China produces Nintendo handhelds. I doubt they can "clone" a board so fast (took them years to clone a GBA). Some consoles have problems during factoring or are defective, so they refurbish them instead of throwing them away.

    You can find them in sites like DX.

    they are not clones, the boards are original, just the outer parts are "fake" or have bad quality. The systems work just like any DS/lite should, playing GBA and DS games.

    You can find them in sites like DX, like I said. And sites like DX sell (non-original) cases, buttons, and other replacement parts like screens, cartridge slots, et cetera.

    IMO, I think this are just DS with broken parts but internally they are still working. They replace the broken parts or everything on it with cheap ones to make it look new. Print out cheap boxes to save cost. Some poor unknowing person buys this thinking they made a great buy.
