    i bricked another ds lite today and im wondering, do we have a hard mod for reflashing the firmware? i have a backup this ones firmware but no flashme so can i restore? or do i have another colorful plastic brick to add to my collection?

    How did you manage that?
    Anyway, a quick google tells me the firmware chip is socketed on the board so it can be easily replaced with a working one. You could have figured that out yourself, you don't need me to google for you.:glare:

    Also it seems that if you have a working console you can hotswap the firmware chip in order to reflash the bricked one.

    Well, probably your only option by the looks of it.

    Better question is how did you brick?
