    these classic gamers and BB10 user like me, here is my intersting DIY mod to give your old Q10, clssic a reborn as powful gameboy!

    we all konw Q10 has very unique 1:1 ratio screen, and the amoled screen is lovely vivid. it's perfect for the old-school scnes, nes, md and ps1 games. here giving great honor to ShiftyAxel, who tried to port retroarch 1.3.6 to BB10 OS, and that's the software basement for my retroberry mod.(his post [Unofficial Release] RetroArch 1.3.6 for BlackBerry 10)

    retroberry is simply a gamboy shell using wires soldering to the original keyboard of BB Q10. however, the design work is somehow complicated for me. i have learned solidworks, sprintlayout and soldering skill for this project, and experience some loss. lucky for me, finnally it's almost a good and unique protable game console.

    here i like to share with you my mod. if you are also intersted i would post the DIY process later. trust me, it's easy for you.

    I'm sorry but that's kinda awesome!

    I'm curious how the button works. Is the d pad like on top of W, A, X, and D?

    hello. I have designed a PCB board and soldered wires with the original keyboard. Then beween these gamepad button is ruber layer. so that the feeling is almost the same as gameboy.And these gamepad buttons are just original GBC buttons, which ensures great feedbacks.
