    Great link! Thanks!

    WAIT! Someone can use PPFlash to dump the firmware!

    Cons:
    -Stereo jack still in front...
    -Volume bar downgraded to 2 buttons?
    -No more slot-2
    -Screens are the same size
    -Removed the top panel cool logo
    -Removed the 6 dot out-speaker design for a stupid line
    -I can see myself hitting that power button by "accident
    -Looks the same (ish) as Lite

    Pros:
    -A camera I already have on my cell or god forbid I don't have a stand alone one for better pics...
    -They added cool audio software synthesizer (that they could have given with a firmware update...)
    -Maybe the inside looks cooler?

    This one Nintendo... is going to get bloody [​IMG]

    The new power button position is the first major flaw I noticed, and wow, people have too much money, a brand new DSi taken apart, that's very risky!

    I didn't see any SL1 (firmware flash) on the mother board [​IMG]
    maybe they removed the ability to flash it.

    edit :
    I read Ahtin's post, there's a firmware update online.
    it may be possible to use a proxy to redirect it [​IMG]
    but it will certainly be signed.

    I don't think you can, but it looks like you can swap the BIOS with the DS Lite.... Why not try?

    Siver color actually looks nice but other than that I say nobody wants to see the innards of a DS(least of all me after my horrible experience with fixing one) so I suggest investing in a more lulz-worthy project like Smash My DSi. Other than that, looking at the pics I can tell that my nightmare is becoming true: MORE RIBBON CABLES!

    Erm...

    First: Power button. If you hit that power button by mistake, calm the screen tapping down a bit. The screen is raised from the rest of the body, and it looks like the style of button is the "push/hold for a second" style on/off. Not just a tap on, tap off.

    Second: Stereo jack is still in front? Where would you like it? Any other place, and the wire would be in the way. If its in the back, you'd either need to have the wire wrapped down behind it it... which puts the wire, where? In front! OR you could put the wire above it, completely restricting any type of screen usage, due to wire hanging in the way.
    Also, on the sides? That would be extremely uncomfortable. And if you'd put it on the bottom... well, the wire would come up the front where it currently is anyway.

    Also: Really people, how is this a bad thing Nintendo did? Its another DS system. You don't HAVE to buy it. Its an option for those of us that have an old phat, never needed a lite, and now, hey, my phat is dead... why not check out the DSi!

    I don't know why so many people feel personally victimized by the release of a slightly more advanced DS (that doesn't have the HUGE changes we were all hoping for).

    Chill! [​IMG]

    I reported your post to a moderator for being far too logical.

    NEEDS MORE HYSTERICS!

    Thanks for the link xalphax

    Exactly, Maybe the power button is similar to the "phats" Which you could quickly push and it wouldnt turn off, You had to hold it for a second.

    Im still trying to figure out why you wouldnt want the stereo jack in the front, I'd prefer not to wrap the cord around my DS to listen to it,
