Re: First Build

I've actually been considering the Pi3 since the day my zero arrived. Would the B+ be the best of the options? I don't really need all the usb ports that the B+ offers, but the ram is certainly more attractive. A Pi3B+ build is on my list to attempt at some point, there are a few here if you dig ar...

Re: First Build

Looks like you've got your parts all picked out and well on your way. The only suggestion I might make would be to consider a Pi3 A+ (or B/B+ if you want to do the desoldering to remove bits). I love my Gameboy Zero and Freeplay Zero, but almost always find myself grabbing either my Freeplay CM3 or ...

Re: Protective screen necessary?

I've got small kiddos in the house so for me I'd say yes, they can be had for as little as $5 so I don't worry so much about having a couple spares on hand should one get badly scratched or even cracked.

Methinks there might be some desoldering in your future. Fingers crossed!
Hoping not but yea I'm starting to think that might be the case too. Waiting to hear back from Kite on if i can solder a power source to the pi itself just as a test.

Ideally something like a small brush or old toothbrush or something with it on to remove it from between the pins.. When you power it on, the Pi itself has a g...

Re: [ PRE ORDER ] Gameboy Zero PocketPi FE

I already see it coming that the kits are not shipped tomorrow and I don't know how it is in GB, but here in Germany we have a public holiday on Monday. So Rich will post a little update, that he wasn't able to ship them at the weekend and that he can't ship them on Monday, because the post office ...
