Found 17th Jun 2008
my daughter has a pink one but now loves red, i begrudge buying a new red one as they are so expensive and there is nothing at all wrong with the one she has (apart from the colour)!!! its not a 'lite', just a normal ds, i dont understand what it means by a 1st generation - can anyone help with this aswell please?
i have been looking on ebay, and seen a 'shell' with the screwdriver but im not sure how hard it is to change - have anyone of you done this? if so, is it difficult? do they look good when they are done? many thanks, clare x

Very easy, you'll be fine. youtube.com/wat…6J0 (vid is a ds lite, but principle is the same)

its very easy, check out dealextreme as they have all the right tools and are very cheap.

It's probably this case on Ebay, looks like you need to file/sand down some bits but shouldn't be too hard

oh i see now, thanks for all your help x

My friend's son wanted the same thing. She just explained that sometimes you don't get everything you want. I think that's a valuable lesson for a child. Cheaper ad easier than changing the case.

Odd I posted a link for deal extreme but it vanished was about £3.50 delivered there lol

i do agree, but its not my daughter asking for it, its more me wanting it for her! i like everything to match, and dont mind if its only about £5 to do so!
