Ok, tried increasing the speed to 90000000 like you mentioned, so far nothing but white screen. I'm noticing that the screen turn on (white) as soon as power is added to the pi. If I run a shutdown script and the pi turns off, the screen still stay on until i physically pull the power. Does that hint to anything (other than my frustration?).
the screen will always have power until you completely kill it....
i have a feeling that you've either got....
a connection issue with the screen and the board (maybe the ribbon cable isn't seated properly)
have you tried thicking the ribbon cable with some tape, or even checking if its hitting the correct points on the connector
(or the cable you have between the RPi and the Board is just too long)
you haven't installed the script property....
you should get indicators when installing if everything is working as it should (the display should switch)
your solder work looks good to me, and power is being provided to the screen (or you would get the back light turning on)
i can appreciate that its a bit frustrating...
bit you do have a simple issue its just a case of figuring out what it is
