This Division 6 mod allows you to change the speed of the Game Boy Advance (GBA) to one of four speeds including: normal, fast, ultra and slow-motion by simply simultaneously pressing three buttons on the GBA. GBAccelerator is useful for quickly bypassing text in games, speeding up games when they experience ‘slowdown’, for slowing down the action in tough games and for custom homemade games made to use the faster processing power that GBAccelerator provides. Chiptune producers will be able to create new, crazy sounds since the audio changes pitch as the speed changes.

This kit features completely internal installation so it won’t affect the look of your Game Boy.

Note: Basic soldering skills are required to install this mod.

We have noted that Unbranded/HiSpeedido IPS kits may not be compatible with this mod. We suggest only using FunnyPlaying or original/OEM LCD kits at this time. Refunds will not be accepted if mod does not work with Unbranded IPS kits.


  • GBAccelerator Chip

When you first power on your Game Boy, it will be running at normal speed. At any time during gameplay you may change the clock speed by simultaneously pressing L, R and Select (or whichever combination of 3 buttons you connected the GBAccelerator to). The power LED will indicate which speed is currently selected. The following table shows the available speeds and their corresponding LED codes:

Normal 1x Solid
Fast 1.5x 1 Blink
Ultra 1.75x 2 Blinks
Slow-Motion 0.85x Fade

Amazing product

Installed 6 of these in various GBA SP consoles - they work just as advertised and never any issues.

I bought the GBAccerlerator for original GBA, installation was not to difficult. The GBAccerlerator works great with some games while other games (for example Pokemon Ruby) the game crashes at Ultra speed. Be aware the main problem I found with this product is to go back to Normal speed you have to first trough the other speeds Normal speed -> Fast -> Ultra -> Slow Motion back to Normal for some games this does not work because of the Crashes at Ultra speed. Wish there was an option to go down in Clock Speed.

Love it

It's a solid board and it works great! It's really cool to overclock your Gameboy to get through turn based games much faster. On the SP, I had to trim down the Plastic that holds the nut for the battery cover. After installing, I would recommend buying a solder heat gun. The pads of the crystal you have to remove are underneath the chip and almost impossible to remove with a soldering iron and solder wick. With the heat gun it took less than 30 seconds to remove.

Division 6 Product with a $10 Markup

Works well, but definitely get this on another site. I love Handheld Legend, but I didn't expect to be burnt like this from them... The Bag even says 'Division 6' on it that it comes in.

Jeff, yes we are proud to carry Division 6 products and support then by purchasing their items to make available to our customers. The markup keeps our staff paid and our lights on so we can keep retro alive. Please keep reviews relevant to the product. Thanks.
