I would love to see a step by step tutorial on how to do this. I want to breath new life into my old gba.

Hi, I'm sorry if you've already answered this question but I can't find it anywhere. I know you replied awhile back to someone asking about how you connected the screen. I understand how you modified it up until what you connect directly to the pi. I'm really just trying to finish up my schematic of my own project like yours so if you have a picture of the connections, that would be extremely helpful. Thank you and wonderful build!

Here are the results of the long overdue AA stamina tests of the Trustfire 900's:
Load: NES Donkey Kong Classics Demo mode (start, then leave it alone).
GBA Zero (2 AA's, 3.2" PiTFT, USB hub + USB audio)
Old pack: 1.37:08
Trustfires: 3.21:00 (207%)
GB Zero (4 AA's, 2.8" PiTFT, USB hub + USB audio + USB Teensy + USB Wifi)
Old pack: 2.16:54
Trustfires: 4.36:00 (202%)
So, conclusive it's safe to say that over 3 hours of gameplay are possible on a GBA Zero using 2 Li-ion AA's.

BTW, I updated the aforementioned forum post with a new result. While I was previously getting less than 1.5 hours out of 2 14500 cells (which were the cheapest I could find), I now got almost 3.5 hours out of a new pair of the Sanyo UR14500 cells.
This almost perfectly matches mrvanes' test with the 3.2" TFT (which is also what I'm using) with Trustfire batteries.

I just recently became fascinated by the idea of playing SNES games on a GBA. So much so that I supported Freeplaytech's Kickstarter for Freeplay Zero, a custom board kit for RaspberryPi Zero in a GBA shell.
A few questions:
Is it possible with your build to use the default plastic/glass cover instead of having it exposed as shown?
Would this project be too difficult for a completely new person to modding? I know that's why I got the kit because beside putting it in a shell and modifying some space in the shell for the board, it's pretty simple.
Would you do this project again?
Lastly, about how much money did you put into this? And if you were to build these how much would you sell it for? After exciting talking about this idea I spoke to some friends who would be interested in having me build one if I do one for myself.
Thanks so much!

Hey I know this is an old thread but WOW!
I've been planning on doing something similar to this but how did you attach the buttons?? I get that you used the old Gameboy Advance motherboard but how did that work? If you could explain to me in detail that would be awesome!
