    I'm working on a custom GBA project.

    And I wan't do modify it with the coolest, funnest, and most useful mods out there.

    The only mods I can find out there is the back light, (done)
    And that's about it.... :P

    So just post any mod you can think of for the GBA, it would help me out allot.

    Thanks.

    1. You could overclock it
    2. You could add a TV Out to it if you're willing to pay a bit and hunt down a GBA Transverter or Converter on EBay, one like this
    3. You could add better quality speakers
    4. You could embed high-capacity rechargable batteries into it
    Sky's the limit, really. Google around for existing mods for inspiration.

    I'd also swap different colour buttons.

    I gots a green PSP and swapped the buttons for standart black ones.
    I <3 the result!

    Yeah, I am already going to add game-cube controls to it. So that should be interesting.

    I have been searching around for a joystick mod. I wan't to replace the D-Pad with a joystick (aka thumb-stick.) like on a game-cube controller.
    I haven't been able to find anything online.

    Also, just as a note. If the mod takes up allot of space, it doesn't matter, because I am making a custom shell to contain all of the hardware, so I have quite a bit of space to work with.
