Don't say the BST section...
How do people get the XDK in the first place, without having a special job.

People who are friends with developers can get kits from them. Companies sometimes sell off kits on the sly to make a bit of cash back when they're due for new XDKs.

They're real, just most are in bad shape. Some are in great condition for that low price though.

I've had mine for a long time. I was worried when I first bought it cause everyone said the same thing as you. I guess I was one of the lucky ones. It has never given me any problems.

Mine came with everything.

Do you live in the US? I know plugins are different in other countries so that was the only thing I'm worried about

I know that. I was asking if that was OP was asking. The only way to get one directly from them would be to actually register as a developer in their program, and even then they would be pretty expensive. They would never sell them outright, however, so you'll always buy from a third party. xD

IIRC it did come with a NON american style plug. I had another laying around so it didn't matter,

Edit: So to answer you. Yes I live in the USA.
