How to Add More Games to the NES Classic

1. Go here thetechgame.com/Downloads/id=28377/zadig.html and install driver with zadig.
Fel mode is activated by holding down reset while switching on power button linux-sunxi.org/FEL

2. Grab tool here thetechgame.com/Downloads/id=2837...-v101.html
Dump uboot and kernel from your nes. uboot should have md5 b13b538f6b7c86623ceea69c456d4eb5, if its not, it might be unsafe to continue. 8ce1857653874e8f0cd3fe68abe1bb4a and 9b8046b47c947d9fa322976c038003e0 also confirmed to work.

3. Prepare roms with nesmini shell, rom is a directory, not a file. Template+tool here thetechgame.com/Downloads/id=2837...shell.html
tl;dr you need a rom, image, and optional *.desktop file. its a text file you can edit.

4. Place rom dirs in
nesromtool will do this for you if you unpack it in nesromtool subdir of hakci-gui tree

5. unpack kernel / repack kernel

6. Do a memboot, nes will shutdown, switch it to fel mode again.

7. Flash kernel <- do this ONLY ONCE. there is no need to ever do it again. until custom kernels appear that is.

If there is a save in the first slot of Super Mario Bros. it will load the mod, otherwise it will load stock shell.
You also get getty on uart interface, but there isnt much use in it if you dont have uart soldered.
DISCLAIMER: Im not responsible for any damage you might inflict upon your nesmini

Oh wow, the lack of games on this console was a major drawback for me. I think i'll look into picking one up now. Thanks.
