I made a custom GB to run on LiPo USB rechargable battery, I just soldered the 5v power to the pins where the powerpack port is on a GB. Works perfectly, and easily.

How are you powering the LCD? The LCD requires a separate voltage of -18v. So if you don't go through the regulator, you have no voltage to drive it.

EDIT: Never mind, I just realized what you meant. You are going through the regulated power. But the input voltage of a GBC is 3v, where as I'm assuming you're talking about a DMG which has a 6v input voltage.
