You CAN tap the original controls, especially if you're good at trace scratching, but I used copper tape in my project. The battery was another issue. Good luck, it's a fun build!

I have no idea how to trace scratch🤦🏻‍♂️ It’s gunna be tough no doubt about that. I think the biggest issue is that I️ really want to be able to switch back and forth with portrait mode

I tried and failed a few times. Couldn't get any solder to hold, so I did the copper tape. Much easier, worked perfectly. To do the portrait / landscape modes, you'll need some creative programming and button mapping. I didn't wire both Dpads either, just the bottom dpad.
