Please read the product description carefully and in its entirety before purchasing.

Features

Included

Documentation

  • The files for the 3D printed bracket can be found on our Thingiverse, here

Notes

  • Some shell trimming is required for installation
  • Minor soldering is required (two wires)
  • When the grid line mode is turned on, some game scenes will flash when switching, which is a refresh problem of the motherboard of the console itself. This flashing is expected, and temporary.
  • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your Game Boy Pocket. Once the foam tape is applied to your shell, it cannot be safely removed. Please confirm the kit is working before connecting the foam, bracket, and LCD. We are unable to accept returns on kits that have been installed in a console. Individual replacement parts are available above in the "Included" section.

Warning

  • LCD may break under pressure or if dropped. We recommend you exercise care when installing this product.

Great product

Great product, worked flawlessly! Although it did not come with a guide on how to install it so I had to figure that out for myself.

Centering bracket works well, but screen seems off center to the right and high. touch sensor was a bit difficult to keep in place, but that's not really an issue. Sensor sensitivity is great. Love this mod. Only thing I wish this had was built in menu for centering, but that's probably a tradeoff for having the circuitry on-cable.

Hi there,
