My Collections So Far

Here are my Collections so far. The Clear Black and all White one have Circuit Sword Lite boards, the Light Gray top/Clear Black back has a Tinkerboy v3 board, and the all gray one has a Helder AIO board.

Re: Tinkerboy v3 "No Gamepad Detected" issue

So after putting the board back in place, it stopped working again. But since I had taken the hot glue (I don't recommend using hot glue, EVER) off and was able to see the bottom side of the DPI adapter, I discovered what the problem "actually" was. On the bottom side of the DPI Adapter, right below...

Re: Tinkerboy v3 "No Gamepad Detected" issue

As it turns out, the issue was the Micro USB, apparently the one I was using had a wire that had come off, but since it had some kind of heat shrink over it, I couldn't see it. After stripping an extra Micro USB cable I had lying around, I connected it to the Pi and soldered the wires to the Tinkerb...

Re: soldering iron

I have a HAKKO N454 that I've been using for a couple of years. Even as a hobbiest, I've never had issues with it.

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - OPEN

Is that an updated Gem, the screen ribbon cable isn't the same as the original Gem. I still have a Circuit Sword Lite from last pre-order that I need to put together, just waiting for the clear black case to come in (probably tomorrow). Word of advice to those buying the Circuit Sword and the Circui...

Re: [FOR-SALE] Slim 4 Soft Back Button PCB, Caps and 3D Parts (OPEN)

VMU Buttons

Here is an idea I came up with, it's not the best looking but it does the job. I had an old remote control sitting in the garage, so I took two of the buttons, grinded them down a bit, glued them to PSP buttons using JBWeld Epoxy. I then took two NDS buttons (this works with two PSP buttons that wer...
