This install was a dream after experiencing the pains of the GBP IPS install... Good documentation on this one walking you through all the steps. OSD menu works well as do the brightness/color palette changes.
This screen is bright and beautiful. The OSD controls are really cool. It seems pretty durable - I kinda beat the heck out of this during my mod and it still looks great.
Some words of caution:
-don't use the 3M or any strong tape/adhesive when folding the IPS board onto the back of the screen. I used the inside (meant to be cutout) 3M adhesive that came with my glass cover and wow what a nightmare. You see the ribbon cable really can't flex in two directions, so if you fold the screen over and it wasn't perfectly aligned such that the ribbon cable will now go into the motherboard which will align with the case - you will be in a world of pain. Getting the ips board off that screen was ridiculous and I was sure I was going to break something. Thankfully everything survived.
-Be really careful with those touch pads. They are super easy to break especially if you put a case **** through them or mangle them with the case itself when closing.
-If you get opt for the brackets, be careful using the "3rd" bracket which goes on top of one of the brackets. I say just ignore it. When I tightened my prestige case down it put a ton of pressure on the screen itself and may have been flexing it. The image in game was warped and I panicked thinking I ruined the screen. I opened it up, took that bracket out, and everything was fine.
Sturdy little screen!
This kit was a breeze to install, with my only gripes really being no easy way to shore up all the OSD wiring if you want to install it, and if you want to use the adhesive that's a bit of a pain. Paired this with a prestige shell and a wireless charging kit and it all went together quite nicely. I did also use 1/2 of the Q5 bracket, if you omit the power switch side of the brackets it works just fine to help get things aligned and in place. I also used the bottom portion of the adhesive on the shell to shore things up even better and the end result was great.
this was my first mod ever. first time soldering, first time trimming molding. i messed up in a few places with the gameboy, but as far as the lcd screen goes it has been an awesome mod
