Thanks for the jack! Great find. I was having trouble locating an original compatible.

Have you used any original charger plugs with this?

Wow, this is probably the cleanest build I've seen so far.

May I ask why you bridged the speaker+ to the other side of the headphone jack?

I love your AC barrel on your build, mind if I ask where did you get it since I would like to use it on my next build.

personally i think it makes the build look way better then a trying to accomodate a micro usb port (i'm still to see one that looks good with usb port)

there is the obvious issue that you can only use a barrel jack charger, but i also found a work around for that

I think keeping the original AC barrel instead of gutting the gameboy was a good call. Your build is very neat and very well organized you gave me some great ideas thank you.

Be careful the polarity of the charger cable. I got mine from HandheldLegends and it has a negative tip.

For the bi-color led, is it common anode or cathode for this board?
