We assume you have basic soldering skills, that you know how to clean surfaces before soldering and that you already know how to add a backlight to a Game Boy. This guide will only instruct you on how to integrate the voltage regulator in your mod.
The wires we use are 30 AWG Silicone-Cover Stranded-Core.

When preparing the Voltage Regulator, you may omit the longer of the 2 ground wires. Since the LCD ground will now be connected to the brightness controller.
Solder the OUT wire from the Voltage Regulator to the positive (left side) of the LCD power input.
Solder the regulated ground from the Digital Brightness controller to the negative (right side) of the LCD Power input.
Apply Kapton tape over the soldered wire to prevent an inadvertent short. Don't forget to connect and secure the ribbon cable before testing.
