Introduction

This guide shows you how to mod your super nintendo region free without a switch and with new LED lights.

btw. This mod doesn't work on 1 Chip SNES or SNES Mini.

  1. Remove the two Phillips two 11.6mm screws that connect the front shield to the motherboard.
    • Remove the two Phillips two 11.6mm screws that connect the front shield to the motherboard.

  2. Lift the front shield straight up to remove it from the motherboard.
    • Lift the front shield straight up to remove it from the motherboard.

    • Remove the two silver 15.6 mm Phillips #2 screws on either side of the 62 pin connector.

    • Remove the 11.8 mm Phillips #2 screw near the rear of the SNES.

    • Lift the motherboard straight up to remove it.

    • The Two Chips that you need on your Super Nintendo

    • This mod only works on original Super Nintendo with 2 Chips, this mod doesn't work on the 1 Chip Snes.

    • Remove the Lock Out chip (use the solder gun)

    • After removing the lock out chip there will probably be leftover of solder where the chip used to be so try to remove the soldier as good as you can

    • To remove the solder leftover, you can use the soldering iron and solder wick.

    • Lift up the PPU2 Pin 30 from the Motherboard

    • Now lift up Pin 24 on PPU 1

    • Wire the lifted pins (PPU 2 Pin 30 & PPU1 Pin 24) together

    • You need to use a Soldering Iron to wire the pins together

    • You can also use tape to hold the wires down to the motherboard

    • Bend the pins outwards

    • Then clip the pins

    • Use double sided tape and put it on top of the CPU and put the Super CIC on top of the double sided tape.

    • Pic 1: Solder a wire from Super CIC Pin 12 to PPU1 Pin 24

    • Pic 2: Solder a wire from Super CIC Pin 14 to SWRAM Pin 64

    • Pic 3: Solder the 10k Ohm Resistor to the 8 pin (where the old CIC used to be) and to SWRAM 33 Pin

    • Pic 1: Solder a Wire from Super CIC Pin 1 to 4 on the same chip.

    • Pic 2: Solder a wire from Super CIC Pin 1 to the CPU Pin 1

    • Pic 3: Solder a wire from Super CIC Pin 13 to the End Point of the Resistor

    • Pic 1: Sother a wire from Super CIC Pin 2 to S-CLK Pin 6

    • Pic 2: Sother a wire from Super CIC Pin 11 to Old CIC Pin 10

    • Pic 3: Sother a wire from Super CIC Pin 10 to Old CIC Pin 1

    • Pic 1: Solder a wire from Super CIC Pin 9 to Old CIC Pin 2

    • Pic 2: Solder a wire from Super CIC Pin 8 to Old CIC Pin 11

    • Pic 3: You've soldered most of the wires now, lets go to the LED Mod

    • Plug out the controller ports and solder out the LED Light.

    • When the solder points have been desoldered, you can use the tweezers to pull out the led light

    • Sother on the new LED Light with the middle pin on the left solder hole

    • Do Not sother the middle pin on the LED Light to the right solder hole as it will then be stuck in only one color!

    • Solder 2 wires on the left and right pins on the led light, green wire on the left pin and red wire on the right pin.

    • After that you should put the wires into one heat shrink tube each, remember to heat the heat shrink tubes when its over the pins.

    • Then you have to solder the 2k Resistor to the red wire and the 220 ohm Resistor to the green wire.

    • Then the last thing you need to do is to solder a wire from Super CIC Pin 7 to Pin 14.

    • You're Now Done! You just need to put your Super Nintendo back together and then you have a Region Free Switchless Super Nintendo!

    • Green Light (PAL)

    • Red Light (NTSC) [For American and Japanese Games]

    • Orange Light (Auto)

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

These screenshots have been taken by 2 videoes, one from Global Garage and Chips y Bits on YouTube! I made this guide since its a little easier to read a guide with pictures like this instead of watching a 30 min video
