    I'd like to know because I'm trying to get rid of my crystal blue 2ds and gateway just to make a quick buck. I don't really use it anymore so yeah, I tried ebay but no one shows interest really and they don't allow the selling of flash carts so it makes it a lot harder. Craiglist? ehhh rather not. I apologize if this post is in the wrong thread, I figured it was best suited here, anyways thanks in advance!

    There's a trading area on this forum that a lot of people use for such things but you need 100 posts to access it.

    I managed to sell a DSTWo about 6 months ago on eBay - listing wasn't terminated, and it was sold in about 6 hours..

    Craigslist doesn't hurt, I guess.

    If you take this route, I would suggest giving the flash cart a well-detailed description of what a flash cart is and what it can do since the common man doesn't know what they are. I believe by doing that, you will receive more interested buyers.
    • the name of the flashcart
    • what nintendo DS flashcarts do
      • what games they can play natively
      • what games they can play with the use of homebrew applications
    • what they need to make them function
      • compatible devices (very important)
      • what size micro SD they may need
      • tools to edit cheat files
      • tools to make specific homebrew programs work
      • where to download flashcart system updates
      • manufacturer's website
      • where to ask for help if they encounter a problem
    • (and only if you're really being courteous post-purchase) where to attain homebrew programs and/or roms for said flash cart(s)
    Anyway, I find keeping old flashcarts to be the better option. To keep immoral practices to yourself and all that. I mean, I know flashcarts aren't inherently illegal but they're still looked down upon by the white-coated fans of the consoles. That, and keeping a flashcart that still functions is good in case the flashcart you prefer stops functioning.
