WARNING: We consider this an Intermediate Level modification. Meaning only those with some experience modding, disassembling systems, etc. should attempt this modification. Stone Age Gamer, nor the manufacturer, will warranty modifications that are not done properly. If you do not feel comfortable installing the MODE yourself we highly suggest either using an approved modder (we offer this service for $44.99 which includes the 3D Printed Bracket see Here for an installation guide using the bracket) or purchase a pre-installed system HERE or bundle the MODE and install service together HERE.
