    Amazing mod for your SP

    Probably the coolest mod you could do to your SP. The flex boards work great! Followed the install video I found on YouTube, took me under an hour.


    Pretty straight forward install & looks great. Be sure to use enough heat soldering ground. The ground plane takes a little more than the other contacts.

    The boot up animation matching is great

    Easy install and looks gorgeous. So many modes and options as well.

    Retro glow

    I put it on my Gameboy and my soldering iron doesn’t transfer heat very well so I ended messing it up and my Gameboy won’t turn on now

    I love it

    2 out of 3 worked

    2 of the 3 flexboards I got are great and super cool. I had an issue with the third one acting funny and eventually my game boy blew a fuse. I'm almost positive it was connected correctly and I checked and rechecked for any shorts. Unfortunately, in order to get a replacement I had to message some discord to show what was wrong with it. By the time I found that out, I had already taken it off and replaced the fuse and didn't really feel like risking blowing another fuse as those things are tricky to replace so I just ate the 20 dollar loss. So I guess my advice is document every step of the way in case something is wrong with your board but if it works properly it's pretty sweet.
