NOTE : You must use a Windows Based (WIN 7, 8, 8.1 or 10) PC to perform the following mod on your SNES

  1. Plug the thumb drive  from your package in the the computer and move the “MODIFY SNES” folder from the thumb drive and to your Desktop.
  1. It should look like this once completed - with the folder no longer on the thumb drive and now on your desktop.
  1. Open the “MODIFY SNES” folder and “1st SNES REPAIR” folder, now run “hackchi.exe”

Before continuing you must put your SNES Classic console in “FEL Mode”

**To do this your must hold down the “RESET” switch on your SNES Classic console switch on with the “POWER” switch.**

  1. Once the computer recognizes the SNES Classic console it will start your “Dump Kernel” request.
  1. You should see a green bar loading up, once complete you can power off the SNES Classic Console

You are complete with the first mod portion - Exit the “Hackchi” application.

  1. Open up the “Modify SNES” Folder and “2nd HAKCHI-GUI” Folder, now run the “Hackchi-gui” app.

  2. Plug the USB Cable from the SNES Classic Mini console into the Power Supply.
  3. Plug the USB Drive into the USB Splitter Cable and plug the input of the splitter cable into the back of the SNES Classic Mini and the other part into the power supply.
  4. Plug the power supply into the wall outlet.
  1. Turn the SNES Classic Mini console on.  Your SNES Will turn on with a SNES Classic Mini “Powered Up” logo and then it will shut down and power on once again.

This can take a moment to load up - CONGRATULATIONS!!

After Modding Notes :

First off congrats for completing this … it’s not the easiest thing to do but you did it!  Here’s a few things you should keep in mind going forward.  If I were you I wouldn’t do any of the things below - but if you do, remember it’s at your own risk.

  1. DO NOT REMOVE THE THUMB DRIVE FROM THE ADAPTER CABLE WHILE SNES CLASSIC MINI CONSOLE IS ON - POSSIBLE DAMAGE CAN OCCUR TO THE ADAPTER CABLE.
  2. Do not edit, erase or modify the thumb drive at any time.  This is configured precisely to run your SNES console in its modded state.  If you do so you will lose the programming setup to run the additional games.
