Looks like I forgot to do this when I joined! I'm CrazyGadget, and I am an Electrical & Computer Engineering student. Ever since I was little, I dreamed of playing my Gamecube games on the go, and you guys made it a reality. While I have yet to make my own portable, I have been lurking on these forums for years, studying up on what it takes to make one, and I hope to become an active part of this community! Also: don't buy from PortaPackit lol.

Hiya! I’m jumping into the deep end so to speak as I’m joining to help my first portable build will be a G-boy, with any luck anyway, I’m readying up to hopefully start a lifetime hobby of portablizing and modding my old consoles!

Hey guys, been lurking on here for a while and I am more active in the Discord (username was FirmShark but updated to make it the same as here) than on the forum. Ordered my G-Boy in the middle of May so looking forward to getting it and building it up.

Plenty of experience tinkering with a soldering iron so mega excited to get a B-Boy built up. Had modded consoles for years, first console I modded was my OG Xbox, done the whole Xbox 360 DVD flash and RGH mods and most recently finished a Gameboy Zero. Always had Ninty consoles (GB, GBC, GBA & Switch) but never owned a Wii until recently as I had only ever played with them at a friends house. So far I have soft modded 3x Wiis and started preparing a Wii for my G-Boy. Already has PortabilizeMii installed and done the U10 relocation this morning for the first time which was successful and waiting for the kit to arrive before I start trimming and progressing more.

Anyways, hopefully get to know you guys more and looking forward to being involved!

LordZOOKOR here. I'm hoping to learn a bit about modding in order to complete an N64 controller project that I've had in mind for a while.

Hi, I'm Coolpic, and I recently got tossed into the concept of portablizing consoles when a video for the Gboy popped up in my recommendations. Now I'm wondering, where would be the best place to start trying to portablize consoles?

i mean, i made a game boy macro once
Hey people. I am Echo and I'm interested in portablizing, but I've never had enough money to buy a used wii or gamecube and portablize it. I am hoping I can save up for a used Wii and use my old gamecube controller and my old xbox duke controller to make a portable with that in a few years.

Hi! Name is Devin, go by dev0range most places. Shank's G-Boy promo vid sold me on buying a G-Boy; had been wanting to do a sort of "level up" mod or electronics project and the G-Boy checked every box in terms of what I wanted to try and my interests. Hope to finish this G-Boy and look for another project. Awesome community here, glad to join!
