Hi, I'm Max. I'm a comp sci student, console repair enthusiast and too many other hobbies to list.

Almost all of my experience comes from console repair (Recently replaced a PS4 hdmi port which I'm pretty happy with) and some PCB design. I've used kicad in the past to design a few keyboards. I am working on getting better at SMD soldering with hot air and hope to get either a reflow oven or a heatplate in the near future for assembling boards in the future.

I am also looking into work on a potential Wii U portable since (afaik) it hasn't truly been accomplished just yet.

You can find me at IcyLetters on just about every single service (Discord, Twitter, Youtube, Steam, etc)

Hello,
I'm looking to find some resources for both portabilization and consolization, specifically involving Namco System 256, Playstation 1, and PSP hardware.
Thanks, and looking forwards to talking with all of you!

Hey all!

Game programmer professionally, portabilizer as a hobby. Got inspired by Shank's youtube channel!

Hey Everyone,

Kinda new to the modding scene but throwing myself in the deep end has always proved the best way for me to learn so hopefully I can rely on your help with my current and future projects.

Hello I'm Crisp, I am still quite new to portablizing. I'm still learning about how to portablize the Wii, it sounds neat that you can cut a Wii's motherboard to a fraction of its original size with it still working.

Hey, I’m walkyd.

Been doing various console mods for some time now (long time lurker) but stumbled upon the portable mod community recently and have been loving it! Worked on the manufacturing side of soldering 5+ years ago but currently a software engineer, looking to get back into the hardware world. Posting here so I can start a g-wii worklog here soon.

PS - Shoutout to the mods for making this an awesome community

Hi their, my name is Ben, I have been looking at starting this hobby, as something interesting to do. I am a high school student, and I just finished my freshman year. I really hope I am able to make some friends on the forums and hope to show some work in this hobby. I hope you all have a nice day.
