    Hello to all- I see many GB Advance Sp motherboards for offer on ebay. I looking for an AGS 101 board, but I don't know which to choose. I see many that the moisture indicator has turned pink. Can these boards be dried enough to use?.Or should I just to find a working 101 in the wild? Thanks to all.

    I never noticed that before you mentioned it. You're right! If the seller says it was tested, I'm sure it's fine. Usually though, if water intrudes electronics, it's just a matter of time before it quits. I'd check the pictures closely to see if there was any corrosion.

    It's usually cheaper to find a badly beat up AGS 101 and buy a replacement shell for a few bucks as well on eBay. The AGS-101 systems released in the USA are: Pearl Blue, Pearl Pink, Graphite, Pikachu edition, and SpongeBob edition.
