    Questions about modding DS for others

    I am reasonably new here but I have been modding the wiis for about a month now and I have successfully done 15 installs (wiikey 2 soldered in).

    For people who do this for other people and charge them. How do you advertise your DS mods. For the wii you say that it plays back up copies (which is legal).

    Are there any legal aspects to getting a DS modded and is it really as easy as it seems? Also what do you guys charge. Please PM me if you don't want to post in here.

    Thanks

    wow i dont see the point in this

    there is no real legal way to do it, since opening the wii, or tampering with the system = violation of the terms of service, blah blah blah

    but the DS plays backups, and loads cheat codes, but in the end, you cant really market it any real way, and a lot of places charge a lot of prices depends on the place and the item

    acekard 2 for instance is 10 or so USD at deals extreme
    and
    20+ at modchip depot

    in the end, theres not a huge market for them outside of places like deals extreme, where they are currently sold out of most of them

    No I am talking about marketing my ability to mod somebody elses DS for them. I am talking legal here.

    If I were to post that I mod nintendo Ds and somebody asks me what it does I don't want to say "well it lets you download free games". I want to say something like "it legally backs up your originals" haha

    So it can back up original games?

    to be fair, isnt anything you download just a backup of someones original, so in theory even if you dont dump it and you have a backup, its legal =P

    but you cant market having the Ability to mod someones DS, theres nothing that mods them =P

    its just a special flashcart/cart that enables you to boot stuff from the micro SD, in the end the device is still 1:1 with a original =P

    Ok now I am pretty new to this is it the same way as the wii. Basically they all do the same thing? Wiikey2 is just a different name than D2pro.

    I am looking at acekard 2.1, dstt because they seem to be a bit cheaper. I hear that the CycloDs is the best but it really costs a lot more.

    Which brand would you recommend admiral as it seems you know your stuff.

    ^ just stick the micro SD, and you can play back ups, if they cant install it then they shouldn't be living -,_-,

    and dont say wiikey 2 is just a different name than d2pro, or any other modchip their all different in their own ways

    like the wasabi use to be the best, for 1 reason, but that reason isnt used by them anymore, just like everything else

    i dont know a ton about flash carts being i dont own one, but from what i understand, acekard is a very good chip, and most of its problems are it was made kinda "cheapply" but the newer ones *blue pcb* are on part with their DSI set which are very good for quality standards

    i guess the differences are...
    green = Fixed acekard 2
    black = worst shell/spring
    blue = newest and newest case

    also greens have been mention to have this

    which is a menu error

    but in the end acekard 2 is a Solid cart

    I would use the term multimedia card capable of playing homebrew and roms, something on that line
    Please read this thread,

    Unless you are a forum sponsor, Selling of products on behalf of a modding company for commercial purposes is a no no

    Balaberda ur not modding the DS
    you are supplying a card that (with firmware on it ) can play backups
    without the firmware its only a cart......
    i know several shops here in the uk that openly sell these cards acecard r4 dstt etc etc.

    im sure what makes it illegal is to supply the firmware that enables the games to be played.....
    but that is a grey issue in the uk




    im sure if im wrong some one will tell me

    Can someone comment on the following if I were to put this in an add or onto a website:

    A Nintendo DS flash cart is a multimedia card that will allow you to load several back up games onto your Nintendo DS at one time. It will also allow you to load movie and music onto your Nintendo DS.

    If I were to include something about not promoting illegal downloading would something like this work? Also can someone comment on including firmware on the card in Canada?

    Is is illegal or not?
