Sanni,

On this page:

Is the flash adapter using a 40 pin universal socket? I don't think I saw it on the parts list, so I _tried_ counting the pins in the pic. Just curious to know which part you used for that. Thanks!

It's this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/351492841197
The last two pin rows have to be bent away before soldering because the flash adapter pcb only has 36 pins.

Hi All, I was going to build one of these but thought I'd see if anyone already has parts to sell a completed one.  Anyone selling kits or pre-built ones?  Thanks!

If Sanni doesn't have any extras left, I have one available. It isn't the all in one but it is the most current one available that's on his GitHub page. PM me for details if Sanni doesn't have any extras.

Being someone who has had little experience with Ardunios before, I am a little unsure how to flash the newer firmware on the AIO units, the instructions don't completely match up with the new AIO design:

https://github.com/sanni/cartreader/wiki/How-to-flash-the-Arduino-Code-to-your-Cart-Reader

In the instructions, the units seem to (or at least those instructions make me assume) have a separate micro-USB and USB-B port, as well as a separate 5v/3v switch and on/off switch.

The AIO units just have a single Micro-USB port, and a 5v/off/3v switch instead of the on/off switch being separate from the 5v/3v switch.

I assumed that the Micro-USB port now fills both roles, but I was not sure what to do with the voltage/off switch. When set to Off, my PC does not recognize that anything has been plugged in at all, and on 5V the unit itself is running when plugged in, and I am not sure if it would be safe to flash it while it is running normally like that.

Yes the single USB Port can now be used for everything and the voltage switch should be switched to 5V. The Arduino will be on but that is ok.

So I found this thread through a google search looking for a device that would allow me to backup game saves and also re-write SF memory/NP carts for super Famicom. This looks so impressive!  I'll admit, I know nothing about arduino or hobby electronic component kits and the like but I made an account just to say how impressive this kit is. Is there anyone that's making these for others? I'd pay a decent sum for someone to build one out for me as I'm pretty sure I don't process the skills to make one on my own.
