    So far, I've been upgrading my Gameboy systems with new shells, new IPS v2 screens, glass lenses, rechargeable batteries, new pads, and new buttons. So far, I've gotten the Gameboy Color's shell swap done along with the buttons and the glass lens, but the IPS screen and rechargeable battery parts are still on their way here.


    Now the DMG got it's IPS screen, but is waiting on it's replacement shell, buttons, pads, and battery parts. I basically just threw the IPS screen inside the old shell for a test run, and to see it in action. Besides the usual upgrades, I'm also going a step further with the DMG ad adding a wireless charging pad inside. Might do an amplifier and pro-sound mod later down the road, but those aren't major priorities for me just yet.

    Each one of these bad boys will be getting an EZ-Flash Jr flash cart to compliment them, with only my favorite childhood games on them, along with ROM hacks, homebrew, PD ROMS, and test programs. I'm keeping the old parts, in case anyone needs a system repaired with working OEM parts.

    As more of the parts come in for these projects, I'll keep adding to this thread with more progress pictures. Later on, I'll be doing an AGB-001 (The OG GBA) with these mods, along with an AGS-001 (GBA SP).

    My shell is here, and everything is transferred over nicely! Used superglue for the screen to stay in place. Just waiting on the battery parts now!

    take it everyone decided this would be a great time to put new screens in gameboys :rofl:, I just went with the cheapo option, screen is slightly smaller but not really that noticable unless you have it side by side with an original gameboy, now to get around to installing the lynx and game gear screens 20200326_091629.jpg

    Still looks great. I just decided to jump on the new IPS V2 screen, since reviews can't find any flaws in it. It looks and performs amazingly, and in the classic greenish-yellow that I LOVE.

    Just got the wireless charger, charging circuit, and 2000mAh battery all wired up. I've really missed soldering. That wraps up this Gameboy build.
