Add this IPS LCD to your Game Boy Advance to make your play more enjoyable with a modern display, featuring enhanced brightness, color and clarity! 

This "Cloud" version is yet another type of IPS backlight you can buy for your Game Boy Advance. The main difference between this version and the Funnyplaying and "unbranded" versions is that this kit does not require shell modification or soldering for brightness adjustment.


  • Compatible with both 40 and 32 pin models.
  • No shell modification required for regular GBA shells, although we do recommend some trimming of the internal alignment edges for a better fit.
  • If using our pre cut shells, some trimming near start/select may be needed
  • Center screen installation, no offset display
  • Brightness adjustment without soldering wires
  • Cloud glass screen size recommended, not included
  • Can also be used with OEM and standard IPS Lens. 
  • Spacers included to align screen


  • 1x IPS Backlit Screen
  • 2x Ribbon Cables (40 and 32 pin GBA motherboards)
  • 2x Acrylic centering squares
  • Double sided adhesive
  • The viewing window for this kit is suited for OEM Displays. 
  • You can use an IPS ready shell if preferred, however you will need to rely heavily on adhesive use, and the IPS window is not perfectly suited for the cloud display.  
  • Purchase a glass screen or upgrade to a tempered glass screen separately. A screen is NOT included in this kit.



    • Test before installation! When you receive a backlight/LCD kit, you should perform a dry run before installing to assure that nothing has been damaged in transit. A dry run or test fit means the kit is not installed in the shell. This includes the use of adhesives, brackets, and any performed soldering. All ribbon cables should have no bends or creases in them. If you are unsure how to perform a dry run, please contact our support team and we will be happy to help. Backlight kits that have been installed are not eligible for replacement or return.

    • LCD may break if put under too much pressure or dropped. Please exercise extreme caution when installing.

    Great Screen

    Perfect to get if you don't want to trim your GBA shell for an IPS screen. I found it a little difficult to align properly at first, but I got it aligned better after rewatching and rereading installation guides from around the web. The screen does seem to smudge easily, so you may want to wear gloves or be extra careful when installing.

    Absolutely love it!

    This screen looks amazing and was very easy to install. Arrived quick and well protected. I definitely recommend. Thank you Handheld Legend!

    Great Screen

    This is one beautiful screen. Very easy to install, super flexible when I installed it on my buddy's pre fabricated GBA shell. My shell i had to cut it and test fit and all that. In the process I tore the ribbon cable. Moral of story, great screen, easy to install but buy the pre fab GBA shells, to have the best experience.

    Great kit for first time mod

    First GBA mod - worked out really well.

    Recommend buying rubber buttons to match any customized buttons. Realized I had only the oem gray, will need to replace later.
    Also - recommend not getting finger smudges on the LCD screen... hard to get off and looks lame with permanent smudges after install - ha.
    Double sided tape was not great fit for the standard sized shells, had to trim, nbd.

    Overall, pretty straightforward even without instructions, very happy with my end product!

    came quick but....

    got everything hooked up and the light for the screen came on but the screen didnt, i tried it again and again, but it wouldnt work

    I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at support@handheldlegend.com so we may get this resolved for you.
