    Alright, so I've decided to flash my old..old...old DS Phat. Or at least one of them

    I've read about flashme before, but never tampered with it.

    I want to flash it with a firmware that enables the "Adjustable Backlight" feature, just as the DS Lite has.

    Edit: My secondary Phat has V5, so it should work.

    I do not want it to autoboot either Slot1 or Slot2, and I do not want it to skip the Health and Warning screen.

    What do I need to do? What materials do I need, such as Flashme version, etc. I already have the following.

    M3DSReal
    DSTT (Will probably use this as it is my junk/tinkering card right now)
    Supercard DSOnei
    Acekard 2.1

    V3 firmware doesn't allow for adjustable backlight, sorry.

    NVM, I figured it all out.

    My v5 DS now has Flashme v8a installed. The backlight is a bit brighter, but still only allows "Off" and "3" as settings.

    Nonetheless, this means I do not need to short SL1 anymore to install any future versions

    As unlikely as I think it is that there'll be any more DS/DSL FlashMe releases, it'd be interesting if there were. I'll be keeping my eyes out, that's for sure.
