    Does StarTropics 2 work on this? Game loads, but no audio and I can't seem to create a new save.

    StarTropics 2 doesn't work for me either. But every other commercial game I threw at it seems fine so far.

    Has anyone tried homebrew games and hacks on this? I would assume they would work, but it would be great if someone could confirm.

    I attempted to install 20 games in Canada and it did not work.

    I booted the NES mini into Fel mode.
    Then I installed the driver.
    Upload selected games to NES mini.
    Waiting for the NES mini to power off.
    Then rebooted the NES mini and nothing.

    I tried it several times.
    The second time I tried it I had an error stating it was a unknown checksum. Perhaps its patched for Canada?

    - Boot in Fel mode
    - Install the driver
    - DUMP the kernel
    - Flash custom kernel
    - Upload games
    - Wait to the led to turn off
    - Reboot the nes
    - Profit

    Hi All.

    I cannot get past the driver installation step when trying to dump the Kernel (...?) so the program cannot detect the Mini NES. I follow the steps correctly, ensuring I hold down the RESET button when turning the Mini NES on.

    I've attempted to install the driver via device manager but get a message indicating Windows found the driver but there was an error when trying to install...?

    Has anyone else encountered this problem and found a way to install the Mini NES driver?



    Using PAL Mini NES, Windows 7.

    Was able to get this to work on my NES classic. But on Famicom mini after trying to dump the kernel recieved and error. and wasn't sure if its safe to continue mainly worried about losing the original games if the mod doesnt work.

    I installed the driver using
    Zadig

    Go here:

    http://linux-sunxi.org/FEL/USBBoot#Using_sunxi-fel_on_Windows and install driver with zadig.

    Tried using Zadig, but it failed to install the driver as well...? - However, thanks for the suggestion.

    Any other ideas on how I can install the driver or what may be preventing me from doing so...?

    That's pretty good. Is this your own work or are you re-posting it from another site?

    Mine took about 10 to 15 seconds.
    The led stays off when uploading games, then turns on when finishing the process and then when the pc says "finish" the led keeps on for about 10 to 15 seconds.

    a. Turn off all firewalls, anti-virus, etc
    b. Try running the haxchi2 as administrator.
    c. If above don't work run Zadig as administrator.

    Mine is going through all the demo and games. Its been over 20 minutes each time.

    So I assume mine is not patchable.....yet.

    But the nes doesnt exit the Fel mode by itself. When dumping, flashing, etc., the screen remains off. When i manualy restart the nes the screen turns on.

    Are you sure that your nes is in fel mode?

    I am in fel mode. Reset and Power held for a few seconds on boot. Then I am able to do the rest but
    once my haxchi2 says wait for LED to power off, the NES comes back on by itself and then I think it only shuts off when it goes into power save mode....hence why I am waiting so long.

    I do have a different checksum and I emailed it to clusterrr

    Is it possible to use Net Framework 3.5.1 instead of 3.5? I cant seem to downgrade or install Net Framework 3.5
