    Yes, I did it when I got my first Slot-2 Cart.
    There are multiple versions, it can remove the Health&Warning screen (Depending on which version), Boot from Slot-2 in NDS mode(It will load normally if you hold Select), and there is an alternate version were it only boots Slot-2 if you hold down Select.

    thats cool. is there a website or anything that has all the different versions? and also, how do you get backups incase something happens to the ds and the flashing backfires?

    Here.
    Aside from the included Failsafe, not to my knowledge, I only had one Brick and it was within Warranty, I just replaced it.
