Can I brick my DS by running a WiFi game in WiFi?

If you used FlashMe to flash your DS with an old version of the FlashMe firmware replacement (v 4 or below, I think), a game that uses wifi CAN and WILL brick your DS, because it writes the wifi settings to the firmware and replaces the code that FlashMe put there, thus rendering your system useless. Tetris DS, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart DS, and several others are the ones that do that. And it's not an M3 issue. THis would happen even if you used the Mario Kart DS game card. It's due to having an older version of FlashMe on it. ^_^ Sooo.. yeah.

Now.. don't use Roms. They're bad, mmkay?

Oh I'm just using my clean dumps, because I fear losing one of my 9 games in an 8 carrier pouch (but the Passcard makes 10, leaving no space.)

If I DON'T use FlashMe, is it safe?
