    Hi, I just recent installed a GBA SP 101 screen (Type AB/Brown) into my 40 pin OG GBA. Using this adapter The screen looks good but is only about as bright as the SP on the low setting. Is this normal? Or is there a way to get it as bright as the SP on it's brighter setting? I believe my wire to DA1 is soldered on okay. Not quite sure what's going on.

    its OK, you cannot make 2level brightness level comparing to GBASP on GBA with AGS-101 mod with common adapter ribbon cable.
    Even 2-level brightness adapter brings you NORMAL and LOW brightness only switch, not BRIGHTER.

    Maybe 5-level brightness adapter can do better, any one checked this?
