what happened if the pin goes in to far? (step 22)

jaime - Replica

I have a weird question: If I remove the cameras, and reassemble the device without them, will it still work?

Will Stein - Replica

It most likely will. My DSi is missing its camera assembly and works fine. Minus the features of the camera.
