    Amazon really seems to have taken off a lot of flashcarts off their site. That sucks; I used to get mine off there. It seems Nintendo is catching on to other flashcarts other than the R4.

    Why buy from shady Amazon retailers when you could just go with infinitely more reliable sites like DealExtreme, DealWoot, and RealHotStuff and not worry about this crap?

    Amazon eBay YouTube, they just don't have the time, interest or reason to take the side of a nobody when a 500 pound gorilla grade corporation says "remove it now".

    You got noticed, and that's the only thing you did wrong.

    We all know flash carts are like guns. Flash carts don't steal, it's people with flash carts that steal [​IMG]

    That's why I said "a lot of", not "all". I'm pretty sure there used to be more.

    Also Amazon retailers with good ratings are generally reliable. I found that they tend to answer emails faster than the "reliable" sites too. If your thing doesn't arrive, you can notify Amazon and they will sort out your refunds.
