i was looking for a new whack boy (which i dont have to look after)
the buttons where absolutely gone, the case looked like it fell into a bucket peanut butter in the year 1989 -> now in the future someone found the peanut butter bucket -> and put the gameboy on ebay...
i did a prosound mod and 10 uF caps mod, took the blue backlight out of my other dmg and installed it.
i repaired the display and the cartridge contacts - also replaced the speaker which was broken.
reflowed and cleaned all the contacts, and used the chance to finally get my black dmg a white backlight.
too bad my cam cant capture backlight colours right (the white inverted looks very detailed with a violett/darkblue shade)
in my opinion white is the best choice when it comes to backlights.

|the white backlight, looks better in real life|
|it was cheap so, i am happy with the result|
seems that its working fine, i had to modify the code because the original code doesnt work with Arduino Mega.
maybe its also not working perfectly because i had this arduino mega layin' around for years and it was
a chinese copy of the original mega 1280?
but well, the syncing is working finally ! yeeha!
