Just tested the screen with the PowerBoost as power source and it works!

Now I have all the needed parts I can finally start with the assembly.

I've almost finished my GB Zero build but have a strange issue. Before I assemble the GB I powered it up for a final test. But now the Pi's act led is flickering. At the same time the speaker is making noise. Is there somebody who can point me to the right direction?

Here's a video where I power on the GBZ; https://youtu.be/Zqu_xV6Cq58

Try putting the audio cables somewhere else. If that doesn't work try shielding it.

I would shield the wires rob, sounds like classic distortion noises.

How are the 3d printed parts holding up?

I hope to start my build soon, done some minor stuff

What can I use to shield the wires? I can't reroute them...
