    Default GBA SP2 screen in original GBA?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to take the screen from a GBA SP2 (the backlit one!) and fit it into the original GBA? I love the form factor of the original and would love to see my games on it! Thanks, P

    At the bottom of the 4th page I explain how its done. Works very well. Did it with my Classic NES SP. Just takes a few minutes and is foolproof.

    Thanks dude, I've read that already though.

    I want to fit the new screen in the old style GBA not the SP. I like the SP design but I have always preferred the layout of the old GBA - it's just the screen that I hate!

    That would require Ben Heck level skillz and time.
