    I just want to know if a Gameboy Pocket screen will work in an Original Gameboy. I just got an Original Gameboy today and it appears the screen is busted.

    I think there's only one way to find out, and it involves a triwing screwdriver. :p

    The pinout should be the same on both of them. Worth a shot.

    I can't get this one last screw out of the original gameboy. I need to order a tri wing.
