Quick question

Is there any way someone could sabotage your gameboy? Do something to it to make it gradually fail, and have nothing else apparently wrong with it?

Water and electronics do not mix. That said, I've taken a gba into the shower with me, and nothing shorted out.

Or - a flashcart with a bad program on it. Kinda like the infamous PSPbrick trojan. But I think the gba is generally safe, as most people do not have access to programming skills/a flashcart.

Lastly, anything mechanical...I had a gba that the buttons ended up failing because of too much wear and tear on the sliding button.
