    everybody knows dealextreme is the cheapest place to buy ds flashcard (albeit it being full of clones)
    and most of you know that "secret" way of buying cards even after they were removed.

    but that doesn't work anymore! i confirmed this myself and two others in DX forum.
    does anybody know if there's a way around it?

    Well it must have been very recent as to when that changed as I bought 2 acekards from there 4 days ago. There should be a forum link in the video games section linking to the sku's.

    Hope this helps,
    Kugz.

    Chances are they've been filed a DCMA notice or something and they've taken them down for a few days, give it a bit they'll be back up. They make too much money from them lol [​IMG]

    Thankfully DMCA does not extend beyond the united states. [​IMG] Their search engine has been sucking really bad for a while now. Use browse to find the flashcarts.

    it's not the SEARCH FUNCTION that doesn't work.
    dealextreme was forced to remove flash card listings by nintendo/paypal.
    did you guys even read the first post?

    I can find the CycloDS just fine, maybe they had to admit that this is just the best flash cart and dropped all other [​IMG] (Or is there an error while confirming the buy?)

    SHIT.

    I am starting to find confirmation that they have indeed been taken off. Though they still have cyclo they have almost nothing else. There goes my best source of flashcarts.

    I've bought my EZVi and trigram screwdriver from them and now waiting for GC controller + memcard. Hope they have no problems with those %)
    I've also bought DSTT from priceangels (I needed that to recover my phat after brick), their shipping wasn't really better than DX's (it was the same, in fact).

    Priceangels is pretty good. I bought from them before. Experience is similar to DealExtreme.

    As for why you can't buy using the loophole, blame the noobs who were posting guides.

    That was some weeks ago Einstein, read the thread. This just happened 1 day ago.

    You can not order these from DX using any workaround unless you added them to the cart before they disabled them.
