Hi! I have always enjoyed doing things out of the ordinary, and building portables of consoles from the ground up is the apotheosis of that! I know practically nothing about parts on a PCB board, but I hope to be able to look at one and be able to read it like a book one day. I have fixed charging ports on multiple tablets for people and replaced some of my own iPhone parts, but I'm getting into modding my OLED switch and also hope to join the army of people making portable consoles in the future!

Hey I’ve always thought making portable consoles were super cool and always wanted to give it a try! I hope to finish a portable by the end of this year!

Hi! I've been on the forum for a while but never posted in the welcome thread. Just finished my Ashida today so hopefully there will be a Cutting Edge post soon.

Hello! I have been tinkering with mods on my consoles and handhelds more and more in the last couple of years, and recently I found a Wii for $20 at Goodwill and couldn't resist the little voice in my head telling me to make a Wii portable :XD: so I'm already well underway with putting together an Ashida. Will probably need a little help here and there. Happy to be here!

Hi! My name is Nolan and I have been paying attention to Wii portables and have been planning on building one for over a year now, but I have just created my account on BitBuilt. I am planning on building an Ashida, and already have most of the parts. I just need the Wii, harvested parts from Wii Classic Controller, and Gamecube buttons and rubber pads (and maybe the board that CrazyGadget made which allows button combinations to choose screen controls, but I will likely decide if I want that towards the end of my project, if I can find a way to get my hands on one lol). I also still need to purchase items such as solder and wire. I will likely make a work log when I start!

Hi! Joining because I’m interested in doing some fun modding work on some retro consoles we have lying around, but I have zero electronics knowledge and want to make sure I’m doing things safely and efficiently!

hello I'm noonja, I installed my first picoboot just recently and have now delved into the rabbit hole of console modding. I am most interested in consolize mods, if anyone has any recommendations for where to start for honing general modding skills, it would be greatly appreciated.
