How to tell a "Mod" is a "Hoax"

Check this out!  multi-lesson guide on hoaxes and the DS!




Lesson one: GBA colors.
The GBA will colorize classic GB games.  Ash becomes red, squirtle (or any other pokemon) becomes blue.

Lesson two: Goomba Emulator colors
Goomba is a Gameboy emulator for the Gameboy Advance.  Here you can see some various screen shots.  In these screen shots, you can clearly see the yellowness of games.




Lesson three: Goomba on the DS
Goomba on the DS shows up... yellow?

Lesson four:  Taking apart your DS
To take apart your DS, you have to remove skrews.  One of these is behind the serial number sticker.  I cant seem to find where the sticker was broken at all in the following pictures.  Perhaps it wasn't?

Lesson five:  Circuit boards
The light green part of the circuit board is called the "trace".  These are the wires that connect the pins together.  If you look closely, you can see how pin 32 on the GBA slot is already grounded.  In fact, it is the ONLY ground connection on the GBA or GB slots.  The yellow line only follows the trace from pin 32 to another ground connection, being a skrew.

Lesson six:  Integrated Circuits
These are the little chips on the circuit board.  In the picture above, you can clearly see teh "NTR-RFU".  This stands for "Nitro Radio Frequency Unit".  Nitro is the code-name for the Nintendo DS.  RFU is the wireless adapter for the Nintendo DS.  The CPU is actually located behind the DS cart slot, hidden in any of the lik-sang pictures, hence why the CPU wans't used in the hoax.  The RF unit looks like a CPU with a cold-plate on top of it.



So, what have we learned from all of this?
1) dont post hoaxes in my community
2) if you ARE going to post a hoax, at least make it beleive able.
3) dont use emulators that purposfully emulate things incorrectly, such as colors.
4) if you are going to pretend to open your DS, at least break the seal and void your warrantee

i also stated that anyone else posting non-sense in my community would have to be removed.  and because of the amount of krap this guy has gone thru to persuade others that his hoax is real, i may be forced to removed all other posts concerning this matter, to help prevent this infectious disease from spreading elsewhere on the internet.  i'm sorry to all those that have expressed opinions on said posts, but i simply cannot allow this scan to persist in my community.  i am only trying to do the job of a moderator.  the guy posting the nonsense only seems to be interested in selling "kits" and making money off of this scheme.  if it where real, he would provide real evidence, such as pictures of the wiring inside of the unit, and more then just a single game, and possibly a video.  all of this is lacking, plus with the information provided above, it is clear that the entire thing is a hoax. 




i am truely sorry to anyone that may be upset with me for deleting posts... but please do read what is behind the cut before you get angry, and go on a posting and commenting rampage.  i'm only trying to keep things clean around here.  i dont like schemes and scams.  i beleive i have provided enough information to prove the hoax as falsehoods, and if you would like any more proof, please ask.
