    Well I have a white 3 in 1 but since I'm changing the housing for my DS lite soon, it'd look weird/stand out.

    They don't sell the housings for the ez flash 3 in 1s, right?

    I've never had a 3 in 1, but can't you use the outer part of the GBA slot cover?

    I don't think you can use the shell from an actual GBA slot cover, looking at the insides of the EZFlash one, the top part has a slicing for the battery, so maybe it's possible if I you made a spot for the battery. Has anyone tried anything like this?

    Yah, might as well try it. I never took apart the EZFlash, is the MOBO attached to the bottom or it's a separate piece? Once my casing for the DSL arrives, I'll try the replacement for the GBA Slot cover.

    It is the wrong shape. You will have to hack your DSL dust cover completely...

    I don't see how, if it's just the insides that needs the hacking, because the outside will fit just like a regular dust cover.

    I did. I cut a lot up out of the GBA slot cover, plus used a file to thin down some plastic for the battery. Whole process took an hour or two, and I had to use 10-minute resin to hold it shut. But, it's not coming undone. Ever.

    Yeah, the inside of the dust cover will need to be modified. I tried. And failed.

    Post results if you go through with it, I was thinking of doing the same thing once I get a 3 in 1.

    Will do, I just don't know what tools I should use to "carve" the inside plastic that won't destroy it.

    Any ideas :3?

    Pointed wire cutters and a standard nail file. That's all I used.

    EDIT: Found the results, as proof.

    I might be selling it, actually. I plan on getting a DSi, rendering that useless to me.

    [​IMG] I meant your DS case as well, unless you meant selling both the EZFlash and DSL, but I think you just meant the former.

    Meh, both. I won't need either if I get a DSi. Oh, and that's just a skin on the DS, which is held on with the same stuff I used to tack the new EZFlash housing shut. So neither are coming off. xD

    EDIT: Do you think that DS, the EZFlash, and an M3 Real would be a good trade for a DSi?

    I would tell him to throw in 10 or 15 bucks just for an extra profit (DSL = 120, M3 = 20, EZ = 20, 160 + shipping costs...165-170)

    He will think he's getting the better end of the deal anyways :3...

    Unless this is a close friend >_> then again who cares in this economy xD

    It would most likely be a local deal through Kijiji.

    Would you mind taking a picture of what you used (for the pliers/wire cutter at least)? I have a file though.
