Good Job. The FDS hardware actually clears the NES. I found that if you use 2 Game genies and a NES-JOINT cartridge, you can also clear the front-loading models (but that's overkill :) ).

I tried this but got sprite corruption. But I bet if you put 8 470ohm resistors in series with the data lines on the PRG bus, it would be fine.
(it has something to do with DMA).
