Back from Vacation

Well, I decided not to make any more batches of PassMes, sorry…

Reasons are:

  • Poor availability of connectors in small quantities
  • Emergence of WiFiMe and FlashMe

If you have a friend with a PassMe/WiFiMe he can easily flash your DS for you. Otherwise (i.e. you don’t have any friends), you can buy a WiFiMe compatible card and sell it after flashing.

Lynx has decided to make another run of PassMes which you can order from his site

Meanwhile, someone sent me a connector which was a bit different from the ones I used and had to be soldered to the back side of PassMe. Below are some pictures of the result. Not too bad, if you ask me :)

    That looks pretty good, but hey, everything does in hiensight.

    That looks pretty neat. I am currently making my own passme board seeing as like you say there are no boards available to be bought at the moment. I am interested in which sort of connector you think works best and maybe give me some supplier addresses. Keep up your good DS Homebrew work.

    If you won’t make any more passme’s, could you then at least provide links to pages where to get the needed parts to build one/links to where you got the parts you used to build passmes?

  4. Sniper Says:

    He said that Lynx was still building them, and he also linked it…

  5. nYoo Says:

    Yes, I saw that link. But I was asking for links to pages that sell the parts, one needs to build a passme.

    I have posted design files & info in previous blog entries.

    Although, Lynx *does* have the links to where to get parts on his site.

    Thanks :)
    I’m just not very experienced with finding the right hardware parts. I searched a lot but didn’t find anything, so where can I get connectors that fit the DS carts? Or atleast, could you help me by telling part numbers or manufactur names?

    Sure, I ordered from MCM and CPC. Here is the one I have been using:
    link to MCM
    link to CPC

    Notice, however that 0 are in stock and lead time is 100 days. This is why I stopped making PassMes. Impossible to get the connectors in small quantities!

    You might want to try searching on eBay, I have seen the connector being sold there some time ago.

    cheers natrium42 thats the part i was looking for, cheers for the link

    Hmm I wonder where lynx gets all those GB connectors from that he even can provide passmes with gbcs for ndsdevkit.

  11. Mr. Picklesworth Says:

    I may end up making my own passme and would definietly prefer to have the connector soldered on the back like that one. Do you know where I can get that particular connector?

  12. natrium42 Says:

    You could use the connectors me and Lynx are using. Contact me if you want to buy angled PassMe or the connector itself. :)
