Notes

  • Some soldering is required, see the installation guide linked in the documentation section.
  • This kit requires Funny Playing's Laminated GBA shells, as they are designed to accommodate this display; the kit cannot be installed on other shells.
  • The ribbon is very fragile, be sure to install it carefully.
  • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your Game Boy Advance. 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.
  • Too much pressure can permanently damage the screen and result in rows of dead pixels. Do not force the shell closed around the LCD. Ensure the shell is properly trimmed for the IPS LCD before attempting to install it.

Warning

  • LCD may break under pressure or if dropped. We recommend you exercise care when installing this product.
  • Ribbon cable is fragile; be sure to install it carefully.
  • We strongly recommend you follow the tutorial linked in the Documentation section and use one of the compatible shells, to minimize the risk of damage during the installation.

Super Clear - easy install

If you get the screen and the case, it is incredibly easy to install. Make sure you get a good tri-wing bit, but that's not on RM, Nintendo screws work well but there are so many crap drivers out there. The soldering is easy - however you do need a very fine point iron. I used a cheap one from amazon because my main one was too big. Overall, i would do it again.
