    I don't think I've seen a new thread on it but earlier in August the Super NT official firmware was updated to v4.9 which lead to jailbreak firmware v6.9. The most significant update on the Jailbreak end is support for a number of SNES enhancement chips. Taken straight from GitHub.
    • Added DSP1,2,3,4 support
    • Added OBC1 support
    • Added ST010, ST011 support
    • Added CX4 support
    So you can get your Super Mario Kart, Pilotwings, Mega Man X2 and X3 on through the rom loader now.

    On the official side,
    • an SPC player has been added,
    • support for analogue's prototype DAC
    • user fonts and a couple more items.
    Full change log and release here: https://github.com/SmokeMonsterPacks/Super-NT-Jailbreak/releases/tag/v6.9

    Thanks @AshuraZro, didn't know about the update. Been a busy month at my house. The addition of some enhancement chips is great stuff. But what I really anticipated and hoped for when I bought the Super NT is that the NES core would eventually get added to the jailbreak. Obviously, hasn't happened, and I don't understand why not. Unless Analogue intends to make a more affordable, plastic-shelled version of the NT Mini ... which they'd better get on it soon if that's the plan. But if the NT Mini isn't coming back, then they really should just add the NES core as an additional feature. They'd sell more, we'd all be happier customers, etc.

    I was also hoping for that originally. At this point, I figure it'd only happen if Analogue was packing up shop. I've considered getting a MiSTer setup together since beyond the SNES I don't have many carts but just haven't gotten around to it.

    Yeah I've got an AV Famicom in great original condition (see here: link) that I don't want to mod with NESRGB or HiDefNES. I do have a Framemeister but the AV Famicom/NES composite just looks horrible either way. I might end up buying another AV Fami next time I go to Japan, but really at this point I think the FPGA route is the way to go for HD retro console enjoyment. That's why I was hoping Analogue would come through (at least on the so-called jailbreak) with the NES core as a bonus on Super NT. But I think you're right it'll never see the light of day unless they make a new product for it, or just go out of business. Long live Kevtris!

    Well, Analogue is working on two new consoles. One of them is definitely a portable, but the other could be a cheaper NES clone.
