Why Not A "Hackchi" For The Atari Flashback HD 8 Gold / Activision Edition?

Recommended Posts

Since the Sega Genesis Flashback HD and Atari Flashback HD 8 Gold / Activision are basically the same hardware, using a basic Android system, and having a internal accessible USB port, someone should make a "Hackchi" style program to hack these systems. If it can be done for the NES/SNES Mini, why not for the Flashback systems.

I've posted instructions on how to add your own ROMs for the Sega Genesis Flashback HD at http://atariage.com/forums/topic/266499-new-genesis-flashback/page-13?do=findComment&comment=3895318.


Unfortunately, while the Atari Flashback HD uses the same OS/chipset, I think the internal boards have a different layout and I couldn't find an internal USB port in the FCC images of the boards. (Although, it did look like there were solder points that could be used, but I wasn't sure.)


If someone has the Atari Flashback 8 HD Gold and has opened it up, maybe they could tell us if it has an internal USB connector. I suspect if it does, you could pretty much use the instructions that I posted for the Sega version, just with Atari specifics in mind.
