How did you make the hole for the L and R buttons ?

Did you cut the cartridge ?
I used a snes controller L & R buttons as templates and then used a dremel to rough cut the shape, then a small sanding drum to shape.

Can you post some pictures of the SNES controller buttons mocked up in the shell? I am curious as to how well they fit. was thinking of going this route.

Hy. I'm using the same power chip instead of the powerboost. But I have a small problem. The battery seems to drain overnight whenever it's not pluged in to a charger and turned of. The only difference I see that you did was that I put the on/off switch on the 5v wire instead of the gnd wire. I figured the other things I hae connected would draw power from the battery if connected to 5v all the time. And I figurring something wrong?
