I got my DS back today, good as new! It looks like they just replaced the plastic case and wiped my settings, since Tetris didn't complain about a different serial number when I played on the internet. All told, the repair process took just a bit more than 2 weeks. FedEx took 5 days to ship to Nintendo. Nintendo took 11 days to repair and ship back to me.

The deal is that you get one hinge replacement for free. The next time it happens, you have to pay to fix it.

It was inevitable, but my Passcard-3 has died, so I won't be able to reflash my DS again. I suppose it's about time I got an R4 anyway.

I was wondering about this: do you think an R4's the way to go? Or an M3? I've done a bit of research into both, but there are a ridiculous number of opinions out there. And I'd been wanting something that did GBA, too, but it doesn't look like the R4 or M3 do that.

The R4 seems to be more popular these days, but I doubt there's really much difference by this generation. And yeah, no SLOT-1 card can play GBA games. I've only tried a couple of homebrew GBA games, which my SuperCard CF did okay with.

I bought my SCCF through winsunx.com. Expensive, but no complaints. I've ordered my R4 through some amazon.com storefront.

Well, I just bought a cycloDS evolution. I know it's too late, but I'll post in your comments what I think about it when I get it.
