When the still very hard to find NES Classic Mini was first announced many of us who grew up in a time when 8-bit graphics were on the cutting edge were left with a long list of games that we would have liked to see on the portable device. Shipping with 30 classic titles though, the NES Classic Mini was still more than desirable. But with no official way to increase its library that simply opened the door to the eventual hack. Which, now exists.
Modders on a Russian forum have recently discovered a way to add ROMs to the NES Classic Mini which involves connecting it to a PC and booting it in a special programming mode called "FEL".
Here's a video highlighting some of the extra doses of 8-bit nostalgia that can be added to the NES Classic Mini.
Naturally, messing around with the software on the device can lead to it being bricked -- i.e. broken. Plus, dealing with third-party software and unsigned tools can also lead to unwanted malware, with some people reporting that the NES Classic Mini hack tools do indeed cause PC protection software to start firing off all sorts of warnings.
