Which happened on the late afternoon of the 5th of April 2017, during the second livestream of the repair of the console. With everything done and put back together, the console booted Martin Korth's ''Magic Floor'' demo, [[https://youtu.be/P9w8nYeFcRg?t=50m50s from disc, for real]]. Except that RealityEnsues and it turns out that the emulators got their assumptions wrong and failed to emulate the real deal correctly, and the game glitches out. Still, seeing it run on the real hardware quite the magnificent sight. On the other hand, the highly acclaimed Super Boss Gaiden doesn't run at all. Ben is working with the writer of the game to work out what needs to be changed to make said game boot from disc and work without glitching. Without doubt, information gleaned during this endeavor will be of help to emulator developers, to bring their emulators closer to the real thing, and homebrewers, who dream of making games that actually run on the real deal.

A true SNES CD-ROM prototype unit (as shown on the page image, possibly the last of its type, as both Nintendo and Sony ordered the prototypes, numbering 200, destroyed) has been discovered as of late, and the owner has given several interested parties the right to do a teardown and reassembly before selling the prototype off, although they appear to have changed their minds about selling it. Information obtained from the teardown has been scrutinized by various parties. The owners of the prototype had also brought the console to renowned console modder Ben Heck, who is working to fix it up (including, yes, making the CD-ROM drive work), and is documenting the repair on WebVideo/TheBenHeckShow no less.

The BIOS ROM of the SNES CD-ROM prototype was dumped in 2016, giving the people a good idea how the SNES CD-ROM could have worked in action. Just days after said leak, and thanks to information gleaned from the prototype, most emulators have implemented SNES CD-ROM emulation and a slew of homebrews have been made. In the meantime, repair of the real deal is ongoing (when Ben started with the console, there isn't sound at all. The latest fix saw Ben getting the CD-ROM drive working again), with Ben hoping to get the console to boot a homebrew game off a CD for real eventually.
