Re: iPod 480GB SSD

I did something similar for my wife's Ipod but used SD cards, also did this for another person but the Itunes software would not show anything over 60GB or was it 80GB? Been a long time and that was such a bummer, I was surprised you got so much space to show.

Re: Kapton Tape Alternative?

Um I use no tape in my builds, it was designed to have nothing conductive touching anything else so unless you have solder peaks coming from your gpio holes you should not need it.

Re: Collective V3 issues and how to fix them

Blue LED is non existent in the new board so if you see blue you have a repaired board, these boards are practically identical after I repaired them except for the LED colors.

Does the chip need to be 4562 L72A?
My chip has 4562 L62S?
Those numbers are different lots and usually date codes too, important part is the 4562.

Oh new powerboards arrived today all good to go, so next Monday orders will start to ship once again.

Thanks! They aren’t necessarily cheap so that will probably be my next step, everything else works fine, but was reading that voltage is about the only thing that could kill one...
Then you got to add a 10k resistor to the battery wires going to the teensy pin that is reading voltage.

Re: V3 Build Issues with Screen and Sound

He has good working parts that are to be going out to all people so no fixes are needed. The issue is likely soldering and continuity, I suggest learn to use a multimeter properly and check all points in the image above. The screen being oriented that way also tells me that you are using the wrong i...

Re: Mintypi package issues

This is kind of a pointless topic to rant about a mistake you made, now the proper thing would be to contact Wermy and tell him of the situation you got yourself into and see if he can help you out obviously not for free since it was not his fault. Lastly why is this even posted in the support secti...

Re: Upcoming Retroflag GBZ Case
