Re: Ripped a pad off

I did exactly the same thing. You can just solder a wire from the point on the raspberry pi to the corresponding test pad and as long as you haven't damaged the trace beyond the test pad it should work. Just make sure you use a thin wire.

Re: How to change a buttons corresponding GPIO point

I tried changing it to GPIO 12 which appears to be empty but still no joy unfortunately. Heres a picture of the config just in case you can spot anything obvious I am doing wrong.

How to change a buttons corresponding GPIO point

Hello again, since my last screw up, all has been going well, the screen works etc however one issue I've had is that the A button is not working.

Re: I screwed up and ripped off a trace

Actually all you need to do is solder a wire to that X test pad and to the Pi GPIO that is where the X was supposed to be, the via looks to be ok so it's going to the top of the pcb where the trace led to. Use the image below for reference: Whew! that's a relief! Thank you so much :) I've seen quit...

Re: mintyPi 2.0 News & Updates

Finally think ive got most of the parts together, but one thing. How are the 3d parts secured in to the tin? I originally thought hot glue but that cant be strong enough, can it? If its epoxy adhesive, what type do we need?

Thanks again :)
