    Ok,

    SO this 7 year old came to my house and I gave him my gba.

    He didn't know how to put the games in so he slammed it in the slot.

    But REALLY HARD.

    he turned it on and....

    Just like if you put a Gameboy Color game into your gba, it would start up all gameboy color-ish at the start.

    ( HERE IS A VIDEO TO SHOW WHAT I MEAN )

    WATCH STARTING FROM 3:00 FROM THE VIDEO




    NO THATS NOT A VIDEO TO SHOW THE WEIRD GLITCH THING IM TALKING ABOUT. ITS TO SHOW HOW A GAMEBOY COLOR GAME LOADS UP.


    now see how it started it up all gameboy colorish? So thats what happened. But wait, theres more.

    It faded away like it would when it was loading the game, but then a bunch of writing came on the screen. It was all jumbled up and messed up.
    You could only BARELY read the first lines, after that it was all weird Chinese and japenese weird writing.

    The top said something like NINTENDO2000 CO X ???? ?????

    then it was a bunch of weird stuff. It looked very creepy.


    TRY IT!
    My gba didn't break and I could still play gba games.
    I tried doing it again but I only managed to do it once so you have to push it in VERY HARD.


    The cool thing is I have never played a Gameboy Color game on my gba.

    Look at a Gameboy cartridge and a Gameboy Advance cartridge from the bottom. Almost the same shape, except see how the corners on the bottom are missing? The old cartridges have the corner and push a small switch inside the game slot, turning it into GBC mode. When your.. friend.. jammed the cart in backwards that switch was pushed.. not sure about the glitching though probably just random contacts.

    Not advised, not really that interesting either.

    I wouldn't do this too much, if it is indeed booting up in GBC mode then it is pumping 5v into a 3.3v gba cartridge.

    It wouldn't work on an NDS seeing as the NDS/NDSL isn't backwards compatible with GB/GBC games, or are you being sarcastic?
    OP is pretty stupid, GBA's and all consoles/handhelds for that matter aren't supposed to have foreign objects forced into them (Usually stated in the Health and Safety booklets/Warnings in the front of manuals/Common Sense).

    Now let's move onto the matter of why a 7 year old was in your house?

    this guy is a liar

    the logo will not fade away if there's no valid game boy header, which is impossible the way he did it
    and then he said he read "NINTENDO2000 CO X ???? ??ĂĂṁ" which is even more impossible.

    he just wants you to break your gba

    Suggesting others to break their handhelds/consoles is not something we approve here!
    Our younger members might get the idea to try it (because you have to be very naive, or stupid as hell to do it)
    The whole GBA game casing is designed in a way that it isn't supposed to go in backwords..

    Your suggestion is on the line with saying someone that they should start their console and hit it with the hammer......some weird stuff will happen to the screen!
