Hyperkin Supaboy S – RGB/Svideo HACK

I have decided to make this hack because the native video output of the Hyperkin Supaboy S is really bad, uses the composite video.

The photos with the LCD monitor use the SVIDEO output while the photos with the Sony CRT monitor use the RGB output.

The photos and the schematic describe very well the work that needs to be done, the hack is not complex but you always have to be makes particularly attention to the SMD (CXA 1645M) side welds.

    Will this mod work with the normal supaboy?

    Pretty cool mod! I would love to see an RGB or at least svideo screen on the inside. The built in screen also looks horrible.

    The native LCD Screen is COMPOSITE! TERRIBLE! :(

    Did you make the cable yourself or did you repurpose an existing one? What connector did you use inside the supaboy? Thanks!
