Thinking about potential camera mod, bpi m2 zero swap and shoulder button upgrade. Any more suggestions?
I suggest not doing the mods...
The banana pi zero can throw out a ton of heat and in a metal tin this is not good, dont see how you can upgrade the shoulder buttons as they are already improved and pretty optimal but id love to hear your idea, and the camera mod.... :|
Thanks for the info on the bpi. Does anybody have a suggestion for a raspberry pi clone?

They would be wider shoulder buttons so you can hit them easier.

A little while ago, I contacted Wermy about this option...
Sadly I don't get a respose, so does anyone know if he's still alive???? :)

Hello wermy, again...

Can you redesign the custom silicone L- and R-buttons, so they are elongated? Like the GameBoy Color?

This way the buttons have a bigger surface area, feel nicer (to my opinion) and it would fit well with the board Helder made.

Or do you say that we can just directly buy these buttons shown above and cut them in half? That would also be no problem by the way...

MintyJam
BTW the buttons shown above are actually GameBoy Color START/SELECT buttons... :P

Kind of hard to redesign anything after I've had enough made for the current batch. If there will be avredesign it'll be in the future but you're free to try those buttons above.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!
