Re: Powering USB controller from 3.7V

Nintenedo? you mean Xbox. That is the wired version and it might require 5v but to be honest not sure since the wireless one is likely running at lower voltages than 5v unless it is boosting it but I don't know unless I actually see the pcb but not worth the effort since you are using the wired mode...

It has battery level monitoring if you have the SCL and SDA pins available which will do a safeshutdown when the battery is low along with an on screen warning.

I'm having audio issues as well but only when I load a rom, works in menu.

I'm using Kites CS. USB audio I believe.
Try posting in Kite's support subforum for a quicker answer.

Re: V3 screen issues. How to fix them!

It's a damaged vertical line, I can swap it out for one without it. Send me that LCD in a box or a very well packaged envelope.

Re: Destroyed Display Cable?

You have no image showing in your post. I don't have displays to sell either (why do people assume I have an abundance of spare parts for when things get ruined?). I do have an abundance of the ribbons though so I can send you it at the price of shipping.
