Warranty expired Dec 2011 as I did contact them and they quoted me $90 to fix. What would they fix though? Just last week there was a special on the DSi's new for $99.99 and they wanted $90 to fix a used one, ouch.
I'm trying not to give up on it as I did somehow get the error to go away last week using a spam site 3ds card. I remember that once I got it working that time I didn't know what to do and the idiot that I am I went into the wood menu and selected the DSi patch and ran it "SUCCESSFULLY", right after that update it went back to the error. I thought that I had to run the patch to it once I was able to get into the wood menu but I now know that it was not the right thing to do. I have not been able to repeat whatever I did to make it work for that little bit of time.
Maybe there is a secret way to fix it using a specific button sequence like: up, up, down, down, left, right, A, B, Start LOL I'm going to give it a try just for laughs
