It’s not as simple as drag-and-drop, but no screwdriver or hardware mods needed.We have already reported on the progress of unlocking the NES Classic in the past here on MaxConsole Underground, but this week things really sped-up thousand times, with two groups one based out of Japan and another from Russia (I guess with the Election 2016 hack behind them, they were bored and now able to better focus on Nintendo hacking), anyone is basically done, by following this simple English tutorial below you will have an unlocked Mini NES Classic Edition with the Game ROM's you want on it, instead of being limited to the 30 that big 'N' picked out for you to play, that is if you can find one to buy, as they are still in hot demand and this just going to make it even worse, soon I bet the eBay sellers holding onto them, will raise their prices and add in all the ROM's for you!
Battletoads on the NES Classic Edition? If you're willing to take a risk via modding, you too could add this and other games to your own little system.
But that is just the start, already things are improving as you can see from this recent Japanese Tweet from @AyaAyasuke they are soon to release 'hakchi2' which will allow you add command-line parameters to your Game ROM's, which will allow you to adjust various emulator settings like 'overscan', etc.
And there is reports that the Japanese hacker group has been able to boot-up a totally custom Linux kernel via an soldered in SD-Card interface giving them totally power, running other emulators like GameBoy, and better NES setup then what big 'N' officially supplied, so stay tuned to MaxConsole UnderGround as we continue to follow the amazing Classic Retro Progress on the NES Classic.
Visit the following official blog site on how to use 'hakchi2' which makes adding your own NES ROM's to the Mini very easy, as you can see from the full picture tutorial that can even be followed by English with the nice 'screenshots'.
