[Guide] How To Hack NES Classic Mini

"""Note - Originally i looked at this article and thought it was written greatly, then after i had my breakfast and woke up a bit, i looked at it again and noticed it was mostly a copy/paste, i am grateful for @LightningMods posting this, but copy/pasting and hotlinking images is a huge NO, so i have re written the entire article and turned it into a guide ~ GregoryRasputin"""

A Russian hacker/modder called madmonkey from the Russian Nintendo modding site GBX.ru has hacked the NES Classic Mini which gives us the ability to install our own roms, here is his guide in English which he posted on Reddit:

1. Go here http://linux-sunxi.org/FEL/USBBoot#Using_sunxi-fel_on_Windows and install driver with zadig. 
Fel mode is activated by holding down reset while switching on power button - http://linux-sunxi.org/FEL
2. Grab tool here https://github.com/madmonkey1907/hakchi/releases
Dump uboot and kernel from your nes. uboot should have md5 b13b538f6b7c86623ceea69c456d4eb5, if it's not, it might be unsafe to continue. 8ce1857653874e8f0cd3fe68abe1bb4a and 9b8046b47c947d9fa322976c038003e0 also confirmed to work.
3. Prepare roms - with nesmini shell, rom is a directory, not a file. Template+tool here https://www.dropbox.com/s/3t3wrkhw26shro0/nesromtool.zip?dl=0
tl;dr you need a rom, image, and optional *.desktop file. it's a text file you can edit.
4. Place rom dirs in
mod/hakchi/transfer/rootfs/usr/share/games/nes/kachikachi/
nesromtool will do this for you if you unpack it in nesromtool subdir of hakci-gui tree
5. unpack kernel / repack kernel
6. Do a memboot, nes will shutdown, switch it to fel mode again.
7. Flash kernel <- do this ONLY ONCE. there is no need to ever do it again. until custom kernels appear that is.
If there is a save in first slot of Super Mario Bros. it will load mod, otherwise it will load stock shell.
You also get getty on uart interface, but there isn't much use in it if you don't have uart soldered.
 
DISCLAIMER: I'm not responsible for any damage you might inflict upon your nesmini

Nice guide @GregoryRasputin , though don't own one still yet :P 

 

I think they are waste of money and pointless, grab someone with a 3D printer and make something better, with a Raspberry Pi or something similar inside.

Only reason to get one is for the controller imo. But, there are plenty of really good clones for a few dimes, even wireless ones. So not even that justifies the price of this turd...

Wow, I never wanted one before this. I got one of those Retro Pi, never use it of course but now that this is possible makes it a little more neat.

heh, I knew it. 

 

The problem is not just my smudged up glasses but also the fact that I am not very S.M.R.T ( The Homer Simpson avatar is no coincidence). 

But I see the chain of events were: See thread last night, open up link to article, leave for the night, come back next day see open tab, find article interesting and relevant to this thread, forgot how I got to it, come back to said thread and post again, finally look like jackass. 

 

I'm the one on the right: :head-smack:
