Does it dump battery-backed SRAM contents?

What's the dumper software like? What OSes is it available for?

Does it require special USB drivers be installed or is it using standard USB classes? If the former, are they available for 32-bit and 64-bit OSes, including XP? And if not standard classes, is the protocol documented?

What is the purpose of the 2x3 jumper block?

I absolutely love how clean the layout and board design is (is the back side used at all?). Big, big thumbs up. :-)

Footnote: I couldn't care less about SA1. I seriously do not know why everyone has such a hard-on over that chip. SA1 games (ex. Super Mario RPG) have already been dumped correctly.

Nice design!

Where did you buy that cart slot? I've been looking for a good one like that.

It's my first dumper for snes/sfc.
I try to lead as many pins.
Now only the based firmware support dump lorom and hirom.

Perhaps, support SA1, make it more perfect.
