Yes it works, too. You need an additional step though: https://github.com/borti4938/SNES-AddOn-PCBs/blob/master/sd2snes_RevH/Installation/01_Preparation_RevG.jpg
This step is not present in the German CiBo-tutorial.

is this real or fake www.tototek.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_8_11&products_id=213

http://retrorgb.com/sd2snes.html

I don't see in the krizz store


The design is quite simple and free to everyone. In my opinion it's good to see some stores offering that for quite a good value.

- can you confirm that we have to remove FB342 and short it (the component that he forgot to mention in his pics like here :
https://github.com/borti4938/SNES-AddOn-PCBs/blob/master/sd2snes_RevH/Installation/01_Preparation.JPG
and why do we have to remove it (i like to understand what i do :)

- can i use the removed FB342 to replace FB341, and does it have a polarity ? Why do we have to let FB341 in place ?

Got you back via email. In short:
- yes. But also no problem if someone don't do that. I haven't done it until today.
- IMO, yes. FB341 is the connection to the power supply of the audio DAC and op amp.
  (on rev. G FB341 connects the circuit to 5V, which is too high - see first part of this post)

hey, 'llo borti :) nice to read you.

I must apologize. I wanted to take a bit of advance, getting all the informations needed before receiving my amp board.
BUT i was a bit too fast. I could check my SD2SNES (it's not at my home actually), and it doesn't look like the one described in your github. I may have asked some dumb question :/
Mine looks more like this one :
http://retrostuff.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/sd2snes_07.jpg
This last one is a Rev. E1 modded to a rev. F.

Mine is a Rev. F, but what should be a FB342 is labelled JP341. I don't know if it matters, if it's just the name that change.

I think i'll follow your github, and leave JP341 in place.

Oh, and by the way, as i could check my SD2SNES, i could see i kept the FB341 in place (rotated 90° like in the Rev. G mod). I'll resolder it in its place. Sorry for the unuseful question :/

Is there any site that list all the revision of SD2SNES, with pics and description ? because it's becoming quite a jungle :D

Thank you for all people helping noobish like me :)

Good evening, have you restored the files in the SD2SNES folder?
Have you checked that the console is okay?

Hello. I'm trying to update the 1.8 firmware and the screen is black. Please, could someone help to me?.
Thanks

Thank to everyone helping.

One question, may be a stupid one, but I will ask anyway. Is it necessary to do the optional Rev. H HWID mod? Where the unused cpu pin is soldered to ground? This is the only step I did not do until I know more about it. I am also pleased with my revF after installing the Borti mod-board. It is nice not having to do two separate PCM volume levels (for emus and sd2snes).

Afaik for future firmware versions the HWID mod should serve the purpose of the SD2SNES recognizing itself as a Rev. H (or above) board and disabling the MSU1 volume boost option in the menu. But it doesn't do anything (by now).
