GBAccelerator Installation: Game Boy Advance
The GBAccelerator is the latest in speed mods for your Game Boy Advance or Game Boy Advance SP. With some simple soldering you are able to toggle between four different speeds and blast through your childhood Pokémon Yellow or slow down your boss battles.
Place the GBAccelerator on the PCB between the ARM processor and the cartridge connector as shown in the diagram (click diagram to enlarge)
Make connections as shown in the diagram
Reassemble your GBA
Cartridge Connector Pin 32 (GND)
Cartridge Connector Pin 1 (S1)
Use low-wattage, fine-tipped soldering iron
Use flux or rosin-core solder
Don’t hold the iron on the GBAccelerator or the GBA board too long as you may lift the solder pad
solid 30-gauge wire is recommended
Follow wire routing indicated in diagram so wires don’t cross button pads, screw holes, or tall components
Cut off excess wire length
The three button connections on the GBAccelerator are interchangeable; it does not matter which one goes to which button
If alternate button assignments are desired, see button signal list for available connection points

GBAccelerator Operating Instructions
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:
Yes! As long as both GBA's are running in the same speed mode, you can link together without problem.
Using Fast speed, the GBA will run at about 1.5x normal GBA speed. Using Ultra speed mode, the GBA will run at about 1.75x normal GBA speed. And using Slow-Motion mode, the GBA will run at about 0.85x normal GBA speed.No. Overclocking the GBA isn't like overclocking a computer. You will notice no increase in heat dissipation. The CPU in the GBA is actually designed to run much faster than the GBA runs it at anyway.We've run a GBAccelerated GBA for the whole life of a set of batteries and can confirm that any decrease in life is very small and should not be a concern.No. We've done extensive testing with GBAccelerator at all of its different speeds and have left it running for hours on end with no signs of damage.The GBAccelerator works with the Game Boy Advance and the Game Boy SP.Thank you Division 6 for making this possible!
