Hello,

I'm from Guam. I'm a big fan of portable modding projects and the work of the community here. One day soon I'd like to take a swing at making a portable PS2 type handheld. My biggest issue right now is deciding on how to create a full / attached shell with either a vacuum mold or 3d printing.

Best,
Tatlu

hello, I'm reero and I Like to mod and fix consoles. I live the wii to the point I own more than one. I also collect other systems and mod/fix them. I joined here because I need help fixing a regular white wii because it doesn't output video. I will be making a thread about this.

Hey all!

Finally making an account so I can participate instead of just poring through worklogs and other threads trying to absorb as much information as possible. I tried my hand at portablizing an N64 way back in 2015 when I had an essentially non-existent budget and definitely lacked the skills to complete such a project-- you can imagine that one was never finished. That being said, I'm ready to get back into things and have a decent collection of components to get started with a new "modern" attempt! Here's hoping this one goes a bit better this time around.

Well hello there.
I'm currently a computer engineering student with just enough technical knowledge to know that I'm clueless haha.
I love handheld/portable consoles so finding this site was a dream come true. I've modded my gameboy advance and done some homebrew stuff,
and now I'd love to try my hand at building a portable ps2. If anyone knows where I can find info about cutting down a ps2 board, let me know!

Hi. I'm new. Hoping to find a DS Lite shell Scan. Anyone know if Wesk has done one? I didn't see one in the Repository.

Hi there. Looking into GB SP mods, specifically being able to get really good quality shell replacements.

Hi. Just joined. Really interested in turning my Wii into a portable. It really is the best for homebrew and not too shabby at emulation. Lots of people confining them to landfill. Sad really as anything that can be utilized and reused in a different way should be encouraged. Thanks for letting me join.

Hey, new here. Got interest to join after watching Macho Nacho's video on the GC Nano. I don't have too much knowledge about tinkering with electronics but I hope to learn.

Most remotely technical stuff I've done is swapping out RAM or SSDs or HDDs, and installing DVD and FD drives on computers and connecting their wires. No idea how to solder.

Sup fellas

Finally decided to join the discussions on here. Ginger brought me here with his Ashida building video (and subsequently, the Wii trimming guide). I'm currently in the midst of tackling an Ashida build on my own, but I'm trying to plan out as much stuff as I can before I start ordering parts.

Honestly, I have a question that I'd like to post as a new thread, but if anybody here knows the answer - AFAIK, RVLoader doesn't work from an SD Card, but the PMS PD 3 board only supports a micro SD card. It does mention that the SD card then shows up as a USB drive on your PC if you connect the USB-C cable, so I'm wondering if it's the same with the Wii. I'm assuming that, since it only has two data lines (+ and -) that the data is sent to the Wii as a USB as well, and I just wanted to double check that 1) that's the case, and 2) that RVLoader will work when run that way. Otherwise, it would seem to make more sense just buying the PMS PD 2 instead.

Thank you in advance!
