I didn't photoshop any of these images. This is an actual Ags-101 screen installed in a agb-001

I decided to make a quick video comparing the screen next to an Ags-101

It was actually very easy, and I have no experience with modding at all. There is a guy in China who makes Ribbon adapters that connect the Ags-101 screen to the agb-001 pcb. I just got a friend from Hong kong to send me one. Then it was just a matter of installing it. Really nothing special, but the results are great

I decided to make 2 more of these guys. Did both in one night, the longest job is trimming the shell. As I said this is my first ever modding job and it takes me about 30-45 mins to complete, so I'm sure you guys can do it much faster.
