EverDrive-N8 NES cic configuration (MUST see!)
« on: May 21, 2013, 05:24 AM »
CIC chip should be re configurated if region of console was changed. Configuration is pretty simple, just need to push reset 5-7 times, untill led will not stop blinking.
video demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVdCFvoYSH4
I feel that a lot of people who don't saw this video, will thinks that their carts is broken (:

I had a unit that was constantly blinking.  Tried the reset method and now just solid grey screen. The CIC light isnt lighting up anymore.

Hello!
I modified my Italian MATTEL NES, so I can use also PAL-B and other carts.
Simply I grounded CIC's pin4 with a switch, so I can restore original state if needed.
What is best position to use EverdriveN8?
I can leave CIC's pin4 grounded or I must restore to original state?
Thank you, best regards.

It should work problemless since clones don't have any security chip at all. At least I've never heard of a clone that has a lockout chip...

Wouldn't disabling the lockout chip on any NES make this unnecessary? Why don't people just disable the lockout chip on their NES'  ??? ? It does more harm than good to keep it intact.

The reason that everdrives sell so well is because of their simplicity. You don't have to be very tech minded to know how to use one. This feature allows people that have no technical knowledge to be able to play on any system. For another thing, if you have a buddy with a PAL NES you can take your EDN8 over and have good times without having to mod his system.
