Retro Gaming has become a big Market in the past 2 years and with the releases of the mini Nintendo and Mini Super NES, it shows that the fans really want these remakes of old game consoles.
There are quite a few different types of replicas out there you can already buy to play games on HDTVs but there’s one system that outshines the rest of them its the Super NT by Analogue.
Now we’re not here to get into which one’s better, this, that, or anything else but instead to tell you that this little guy has been jailbroken and has its own custom firmware that will play SNES roms and even dump your cartridges to the SD card.
Updating the Super NT Firmware:
Place the firmware file snt_firmware_verJB6.6.bin into the root directory of your SD card. Be sure that there is only one firmware file there. Insert the card into your Super NT and power on. The firmware will be flashed to the console. This process may take a few minutes.
While the firmware is flashing the LED will turn red and flicker, followed by a considerable pause and HDMI signal blackout. Do not power off. The main menu will boot when it has finished. Delete the firmware file from your card after flashing.
The SNT is protected from bricking as a result of firmware updates, but please still follow the above precautions to be safe.
