    • Lift off the bottom cover to expose the motherboard.

    • If you need to, use isopropyl alcohol to clean the power and volume sliders.

    • Remove the three 4mm Phillips #00 screws from the motherboard.

    • Gently lift up the motherboard and remove the ribbon cable by gently pulling the two clips on the side up and towards the cable.

    • Remove the small Phillips #00 screw hidden underneath the ribbon cable. It holds the hinge cover of the top screen together.

    • Open the GBA SP screen and use the pointed end of a spudger to remove the rubber pads around the screen bezel.

    • Remove the five Tri-point Y00 screws hidden beneath the rubber pads.

    • Remove the bezel from the screen with a spudger.

    • Remove the hinges from the original shell. This is the most difficult step, as it requires a lot of force to remove the hinges.

    • Apply pressure with the pointed end of a spudger from the inside, pushing out with plenty of force. The hinges will likely fly out of the shell a few feet; this is normal.

    • Once the hinges are removed, remove the caps on the end of each hinge.

    • Be careful with the spudger. Pushing out the hinges requires a massive amount of force, and you might injure your hand on accident if you do not take extra caution.

    • Take out your replacement shell.

    • Push the hinges from the old case into the slot of the new case about halfway while the case is closed.

    • Then open the shell and push the hinges the rest of the way in.

    • Place your screen into the new shell and affix the bezel into position; the ribbon cable should slide through the gap like before.

    • The case should click into place so that it stays together even without screws. There also may be a small gap between the top and bottom case, as this common on third party cases.

    • Reinstall the five Tri-point Y00 screws around the screen.

    • Reinstall the speaker, buttons, and silicone pads into the bottom case.

    • Reinsert the ribbon cable into the motherboard and lock it into place.

    • Guide the motherboard into the new case and screw it down with the three 4mm Phillips #00 screws.

    • Install the square, threaded washer on the back of the shell. This is where the battery compartment's screw gets held, so it is important!

    • Put the back cover on and push the two parts together.

    • Screw the shell together with the four 6.45 mm Tri-point Y00 and two 4.6 mm Tri-point Y00 screws, then reinstall the battery.

    • Test the console and make sure it works properly!

Hello this guide is great but it has some flaws (missing some steps) but I used an eXtremeRate GBA SP shell and they are the best ones to go with because they have It molded in a way to remove the Nintendo logo sticker and so you can put in a ips screen with out needing to trim and it is made out of a high quality plastic and it better than other third party shell and I used purple/blue color

Thanks for the helpful guide! A couple things of note that I noticed along the way:


If you're replacing the screen lens, make sure you line it up properly so the end result isn't crooked.

Make sure to organize your screws, a mismatched screw can poke a hole through the shell.

Be gentle but firm when tightening a screw. I definitely messed up a screw or two being too forceful.

(I might be stupid) keep an eye on the battery lid screw hole. Mine ended up warping so I had to duct tape the lid to the shell.

If you're doing a button replacement too, be careful with the triggers.

Excelent guide, just a quick detail: you forgot to add the part when you put the screw under the screen ribbon, the one that afix the hinge in place. The rest was amazing, thank you very much.
