Hey all, I'm working through my first build, adding piece by piece carefully. I ran into an issue with my external USB port and was working through it, finally realizing it was my SNES USB controller that was the problem after it wouldn't work off the on board micro USB port itself, much less my added USB port. However, after my last test boot, I manually shut down from the Retropie menu and flipped the Camble Safe Shutdown switch a couple minutes later. Now it won't boot.
My input power works both from the breakout micro USB and the Powerboost's onboard plug, the powerboost light comes on, but no green light on my Pi. It does get quite hot very fast though, faster and hotter than when it was running normally. I've tried reflashing the retropie OS and tested the card successfully on another pi. I thought I had shorted the micro USB input test pads, but the solder joints haven't changed since they were working.
I hope it's not dead! Does anyone have any ideas?
(Kindly forgive my terrible soldering...I've gotten much better with this project!)
