I'm still rocking my Rev.E1b, would I be able to use this board to upgrade to the latest rev? Or is there much more to do before this? (Pardon me if I missed this in other threads, my search ability is failing me)

You have to mod your Rev. E1b to Rev.F first see here and here and then you could skip Rev. G and go on to the latest Rev. H.

I hope this helps.

Upgraded mine using Borti's PCB.  Had no issues and it works like a charm!  (Rev F.)

If your sd2snes was/is Rev. G, please consider that:

Important: There is one additional step for original Rev.G sd2snes which he didn't account for. You need to remove FB341, turn it 90°, and solder one end back on to the LEFT pad. Then you connect 3.3V to its "floating" end. On your sd2snes, the patch wire for 3.3V is already present, so you can use that one. Or you can use another solder point. This is how I did it: https://sd2snes.de/files/RevH/00_orig-RevG_mod.jpg

For those of you in the UK - I grabbed a H from retrotowers.co.uk in 1-2 days shipping time, I had to make sure first by calling them but was pleased to grab a H revision since modding small pcb's isn't something I'd want to risk with 190$ cart avoiding e/g/f for that reason .

You forgot to short JP341 and to reposition the FB341 ferrite bead (you have to feed the PCB with 3.3V, not 5V such as in your picture). :)

i desoldered jp341 and bridged it and repositioned  fb 341.
@lee,i did not read anywhere it was only for rev F,thought it was also on e1,now,it is working fine.
but modded like you say for nothing,in the future gona wait and ask here if its needed to mod.
lucky i did not brake it.

Actually E1+E2 have the same problem regarding MSU1 volume so the mod makes sense ;)

You have to mod your Rev. E1b to Rev.F first see here and here and then you could skip Rev. G and go on to the latest Rev. H.

I hope this helps.


Until a couple days ago, I knew there had been revisions to the SD2SNES, but since it wasn't preventing me from enjoying games or updating the OS, I hadn't paid much attention. My SD2SNES is Rev. E1, I bought it in 2013. Besides the audio issues with MSU-1, am I missing anything? I'm giving some thought to upgrading and thanks much for the above post and this thread for the needed info ... but again, besides the MSU-1 issue, am I missing anything? Does the problem with older revisions affect all audio output, or only the MSU-1 output? Is there any in-game performance or compatibility that the upgrades from Rev. F and then to Rev. H would affect (not including MSU-1)???   

I ask because I think the MSU-1 feature is great, but I don't really use it much. I don't know if I want to perform these operations on my SD2SNES just for audio improvements I'll rarely notice.

My understanding is that it's only for MSU-1 stuff.  That's why I haven't done the mod on mine; no sense risking borking a $200 device for a feature I rarely use.
