Frequently Asked Questions

 Can I use my own image?

Technically yes, but you would need to install all the required drivers manually for the LCD, GPIO input and audio output yourself. I do not support 3rd party images. If there are any issues while using your own image, I'm afraid I cannot help. Why not do it the easy way and download my pre-configured image.

 Is there any soldering involved?

Yes. This kit is not recommended if you are a beginner or have any doubts about your soldering ability 

 Do you have an installation guide?

I have added a pre-check and installation guide to the portal.

 Can I use my Game Boy Advance SP cartridges?

Unfortunately not. The Zega Mame Boy Advance SP kit replaces the original PCBs

 Can I use a standard SP Battery?

Yes you can
