The hack is a basic PC program named "HackChi", which enables users to connect the Super NES Classic Edition to a PC and add SNES games.

In so many words: Beware if you decide to hack into your Super NES Classic Edition. For those games, you can also use the RetroArch mod, so if there's one game in particular you'd like to play on your SNES Classic, you should be able to get it up and running one way or another. ClusterM found a way to wrap that system's FEL-mode exploit (read lots more about that here) in a tidy Windows GUI, which allowed fans to use Windows Explorer menus to dump game ROMs, emulator cores, and even new art into their boxy ode to '80s Nintendo bliss. The SNES Classic can be hacked, and it's actually pretty dang easy to do.

The reason for increased difficulty is that Loon was already in testing in Peru with a carrier and was ready to roll. Despite the advanced technology on the balloons, the internet still needs to come from somewhere though.

There's already an unofficial build of Hakchi2 floating around, but savvy modders recommend staying away unless you have a good grasp on Python and the SNES Classic's hardware.
