I bought 3 nice, new, and almost shiny CueCats in a package deal from eBay.
As far as a tutorial for hacking CueCats, here goes.
Disclaimer: This hack is for the 2-screw, PS-2 CueCats. Don’t try this if your CueCat has 4 screws, or if it is USB. (Google is your friend). This tutorial is provided with no guarantee of accuracy or completeness, and I am not responsible for any damages this may cause.
- Open up the CueCat by removing the 2 screws on the bottom and gently removing the top. [CueCat Opened Up]
- Remove the cable gently [CueCat, Cable Removed]
- Remove the two pins as directed in this picture by applying heat from a soldering iron and bending the pins upwards.
- Check your work to make sure there is no left-over solder or any pins touching one-another.
- Reassemble the CueCat.
