People who ordered from Best Buy on the 29th, did you get yours? Ours said it shipped on the 29th but tracking ends there...
I ordered from Best Buy on the 29th. It arrived on October 2nd via Canada Post (shipping confirmation was emailed on September 29th). I live in the GTA if that helps.

Just how simple is it to hack?
Extremely easy, there’s an even newer version of hackchi out (2.21) which makes the whole process better.

so I downloaded hackchi 2.21 or whatever that newest release was, flashed back to stock kernel, flashed custom again. Has anyone noticed that now instead of it saying 300MB available, there is now 250MB?

that's normal, especially if you have retroarch cores installed and have been making save states. Save states subtract from your total available so the more you play and save that goes down. Before I cleaned up a bunch of save states I was down to like 210mb

I assume you mean the change in Total Space available. The original games are stored on non-writable NAND and were being counted twice in storage. There's also a 50MB hidden partition, if you want that back see below. Overall you actually gained space.

From the changelog:
- Original games are not using extra memory space anymore, so we have some extra space for additional games
- Bundled with new mod "extra_space". This is experimental mod for SNES Mini which moves your save-states data to unused partition of NAND flash. This partition is only 50MB in size but it will free some space for games because SNES Mini's save-states are huge.

Anyone had any luck in with restocks in Vancouver?
I'm not even sure if these NES / SNES Classics even exist.

Why are they so hard to buy? Because they're not real.

There are a couple posts on r/miniSNES/ confirming Gamestop restocks in the US. Not sure if that means EB Games is restocking today also but it's at least a sign that Nintendo is making and shipping more units to retailers

Is there anywhere else you've been following with updates on restocks? I've been checking Walmart and Best Buy daily as I work near them with no luck. I forgot about Shoppers though, thanks for the idea!

there are a few super famicom versions for around 170 on ebay if anyone is desperate, or wants an alternate version. Im thinking about it, I think i'd rather have the PAL.
do not pm me about the kobo 10 arc HD
