Another fundraiser..

This fundraiser is multiple lots we have been offered for our museum, most of these are extremely early systems, and many contain unreleased games and history that would other wise be lost.

The goal for this is split into groups, we have awhile to sort this one and lots would be paid as funded. The total includes paypal fee's added and shipping costs included excluding taxes, we put 10% as we're often charged different rates depending on donators locations.

Hello!

I just picked up an original Nintendo DS (Japanese launch V1 too, lucky me :p)

I noticed there's no definite resource for differences between each NDS firmware, there's only information on how to check a firmware. Is there some place or maybe someone can provide some information on what each firmware?

There's like 7 versions of the firmware, as per a post I found out gbatemp:
Versions
v1: Pictochat freezes
v2: two greyish blue screens
v3: two dark green screens
v4: two golden yellow screens
v5: two magenta screens
v6: two dark blue screens
v7: DS system does not crash

I assume anything v5 or above is for NDS Lite which provides multiple brightnesses, so perhaps just additional hardware support (?)

Also, any info on why its possible to flash a by shorting pins, seems a bit strange XD

Thank you!
