Sorry, but that's nonsense. They can't just ban mod-chip sales in Europe. Europe consists of MANY countries, each with its own laws and courts. Maybe they got an injunction or even a court order in some places, but certainly not everywhere.

Exactly! Pure nonsense.

hi,

it seems that the banning only affects countries of the european union. but you cant still buy it from our friends in switzerland. there is one swiss distributor on the psjailbreak page who still sells the device. only for those interested in buying it.

Damn, they stopped the retailer that I usually order from, ChipSpain. I had never seen that happen before.

They're still selling SwapMagic though, lol.
