    Just a question, would it be a good idea to clean my nomad? I bought it used and cleaned the outside, but the inside there may be a lot of stuff to clean up, I know i'll have to clean the headphonejack and all, but is it safe to open up and do so? I've done it to my gamegear but the nomads a little more complex.

    it's ok, I had to take mine apart because soda got spilled on the six button area and they got real sticky.

    Only thing is, I had to find a security bit to get the 1 screw out(if I remember right it was only security screw).

    Yep, Lik-Sang have a suitable screwdriver (you want a 4.5mm type). You can also improvise a driver - see my little home-made tool at http://www.smspower.org/smsreader/cartridge.html

    Get a battery pack for it, mine lasts about 30min. before draining 6 brand new batteries!!
