    None are support yet, but should be in the near future.


    Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/retrogaming/comments/7xhx3u/analogue_super_nt_custom_jailbreak_firmware/

    Sounds like the firmware will be updated over time to support special chips, but still a good first step :P It's the first release, so I expect more chips to be supported. Whew, and to think I was gonna get a SD2Snes xD

    @mech Do we install the official 4.1 firmware first, then this one once we get the console, or do we just install this firmware? Thanks :P

    If they can manage to add the same level of support for special chips as the SD2SNES (including MSU1) then that would make the SD2SNES rather redundant, since it costs more. I am really tempted to get a Super Nt now. I really like the compact size and the design and the price isn't too bad either.
    I heard something about it supporting ROMs from other 16-bit consoles in the future, which would make it even better.

    Yeah, the jailbreak firmware just had its first release, I imagine more chips like the GSU-1 and GSU-1 (Super FX), SA-1, etc being added. I wanted the SD2Snes or Everdrive, unfortunately, the latter of which runs at a higher voltage than the system can handle.

    Well, SD2SNES is much better than Super Everdrive anyway as far as I can tell.

    But significantly more expensive. I was tempted to to get the SD but...now that we have ROM loading, I can save a lot of money. Only problem is no special chip support, I assume that will be hard to implement since the console reads from carts, and the chips are on those. Yeah, I don't see the ROM loading supporting Super FX, SA-1, etc anytime soon. But no one seems to be able to answer, do you install official firmware and then this, or just this?

    If the onboard FPGA is powerful enough simulating special chips should be no problem if someone puts in the time required to make it work. But I guess it remains to be seen.

    Only redundant on the Super NT. I have an SD2SNES and I'm glad I do, cuz even if I buy a Super NT I'd still want a cart for my real SuFami consoles. Even a superior clone can't replace the real thing.

    And my question about the firmware? Do we install official first or only jailbreak? I have found nothing online regarding this and I don't want to install them in the wrong order.

    I've tried asking here, on Reddit, nothing. It's really worrisome.

    Well is sure beats the Retron5 and any other clone from companies who stole source code and started profiting off of it *clears throat*. I'll support Analogue any day.

    If the Super Nt really does have 100% compatibility and accuracy, then it can easily replace the real thing. Unless of course you want to play on a CRT, since it's HDMI only. Very few people have a CRT anymore though, it's mostly hardcore collectors and Melee players.

    I think you misunderstood me. I fully expect the Super NT to be a superior alternative to a real Super Famicom / SNES. Why shouldn't it be? That was 20+ years ago. I was there.

    But it isn't a real one. That's all.


    EDIT: I just bought a Super NT. I do already own an SD2SNES, two Super Famicoms (one complete with original box, manual, controllers, etc), and 1 Super Famicom Jr. (also w/ box, manual, controllers). I'll just hold onto them, I like having them.

    Am I going to have to find my answer about what firmware to install in what elsewhere or what? I asked a question and maybe you didn't see it :(

    Or better yet, I'll PM you instead since notifications are borked.

    You can still keep the real one for collecting purposes, but the Super Nt seems so good that I don't think you will want to go back to the original.

    I don't know why you're asking me, I already said I don't have one :P
    Notifications are working fine, i just had a lot of stuff to respond to. Also I didn't realize you were asking me at first.

    What I read is it doesn't matter. The jailbreak is a full firmware (presumably built on 4.1) so you can load it first. If you loaded the official firmware already, this is just going to overwrite it.

    FYI I just watched this video which goes very in-depth on the Super NT's video settings, why they exist, and the effects. I'm saving it now for reference later.

    Welp, that does it. I'm sold. The main thing holding me back was having to get an SD2SNES.
