*Note: The glacier color GBA has a better chance of being a 40-pin, but a small adapter pcb will be available to buy separately to adapt to 32 pin versions so all GBA consoles can be used with the 40 pin kit!
**Note: Some displays don’t like the HDMI output, DVI Tx mode is available as a fall back option. The kit ships with DVI enabled by default for maximum compatibility.

Breakout PCB for soldering the GBA controls, audio, and power wires. Connects to main board using an FFC (Flat Flex Cable).

Installation is not included, but I maintain a list of people I trust to do good work here: MODDERS LIST!

You need to privide your own GameBoy Advance console or motherboard to use with this kit, we do not provide it.

Second pic gives you an idea of what’s included with your purchase (LCD) version, pic of parts with full case coming soon.


How to spot a 40 pin GBA:

GBAs with the 40-pin usually have a leading zero on the pcb code seen through the backside of the GBA.
Not sure if it’s a guarantee, but I’ve had good luck with this method.

As far as internally, just needs to have the 40 pin ribbon connector.

A small adapter pcb will be available to buy separately to adapt to 32 pin versions of the GBA.


34 pin SP version is coming, but will be a different physical kit, stay tuned!
A GameCube Gameboy player version will come eventually…
