    it looks like they used foil to jumper pin 1 to pin 7

    No, just 1 and 7, tried it, works great, I am just scared that the foil will come off so I want to know if I can cover the pins with something else.

    Why would you use a sharpie?

    Tin foil is conductive. This is being done to connect these pins - NOT to block them.

    So to check, if I short those two pins, sleep mode works?

    Their could be some way of soldering the two pins together. Not sure if that would work though. Only bad thing about the Max Media Launcher is the sleep mode.

    Conductive paint from a automotive shop will do the trick. Also used a lot to overclock AMD CPU's.

    I'm curious about this too. Can you take a 30awg wire and solder the two points together and tuck the wire in the "lip" above the pins? My MML should be arriving any day now so I can't test it yet.

    Yeah that's what I thought.
    You can buy pen style things with it in for lotsa dollars at electronics stores or just get rear window demister repair kits from auto stores.
    Probably would want to tape over the conductive trace on the back of the cart though. So it doesn't scrape off.

    I don't think the MML will open up, if it does it won't be easy to do.

    Can you disable the sleep function?

    Just wondering if anyone else on here has tried this?

    Thinking about doing it myself, need a few things cleared up tho:

    1) How do you get the strips of foil on each pin to actually stick?
    2) Are the 2 strips connected to the big square bit (so the pins are joined)? Or is it just covering 2 pins? - I guess joined but just making sure [​IMG]
    3) How does it work?!

    Cheers [​IMG]

    1) Basically I just cut them really small and then lined them up. Then I used the side of a finger nail file and kinda wedged the foil into the pin "slot." took me a bit but it finally worked. The trick is you have to make sure the foil covers the whole pin. I was just covering half of the pin at first and it wouldn't work.
    2) Yes, they are connected to the square of aluminum foil so the two pins actually connect.
    3) No idea. Something about simulating a NDS game wrong but pins 1 and 7 do it ? Not really sure

    Are you guys aware that you could really just boot the ds with MML and then remove it, start a ds-rom and place a regular ds-game in the ds-slot and sleep mode will work.
