Tony85's V2 Mintypi

Finally got around to taking some updated pictures of my Mintypi. A buddy of mine has had it for the past month or so. I originally did a basic build in a cinnamon tin but i decided to redo it all when people commented that i should have done it in wintergreen so i did. In the process i moved the US...

Re: Tony85's Circuit Sword build

Nice :) how did you wire up the SD card? You must have found the extra USB port on the inside, I was wondering when someone was going to use it for something!! :) Nice one I actually soldered wires directly to the pcb contacts for the usb port on the backboard.

Tony85's Circuit Sword build

Pretty basic build with a usb micro sdcard reader buried inside of a game cartridge (prs-tech board with the corner cutoff to accommodate the usb reader).

Re: questions about the mintyPi v3

The V3 is a whole new beast. Your old battery will not work, sorry, you will still have to solder the PCB to the Pi, that and *maybe* shoulder buttons.
