    I have some trapped black specs of some sort trapped beneath the gloss on the sides of the DS, and I can't seem to get it out, has this happened to anyone else? It's really bothering me. I even tried sucking it out with my mouth, but I think I ate some plastic instead, lol.

    You mean underneath the sides of the touchscreen? Try to do it with a toothbrush. Otherwise you'd have to use a screwdriver I guess. [​IMG]

    Wow, smart, toothbrush worked!

    Thanks alot!

    EDIT: And I was referring to the side of the DSL, where the gloss is near the L and R buttons.

    I had the same problem with my edges getting all grimey. I took an x-acto blade and ran it through backwards a few times. It didn't get everything out, but it is way better than before. I also used it to scrape the build-up from the sides of my buttons. Why does everything have to be white these days?

    because, its all apple's fault and everyone buying ipods. if you want everything to be black, i think the only way is to kill all white people, and all white ipods. ROFL.
    -No offense to anyone.-

    Toothbrushed worked on my 2 day old DS Lite. Amazing how much dirt got stuck in there in such little time.
