Yes it is safe. And since most new games/wiiware are using this IOS is good to update anyway.

The only time you have to worry about stub IOS actually breaking anything is if you're upgrading a system menu IOS. System menu IOS aren't used for games ever, so there is never any reason to update them. Likewise if you're just updating an IOS a game uses, you have no chance to brick your system menu... assuming of course you're installing the right IOS

The only IOS's that you really need to be cautious with are: IOS9, IOS11, IOS20, IOS30, IOS40, IOS50, IOS60, IOS70, and IOS80. This, however, doesn't mean that you should just go around messing with IOS's without knowing what you're doing.

That's different though, you're not upgrading an IOS, you're installing a patched system menu IOS just so you can run pirated WADS.

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
