Re: Awful At Soldering To Pi

Well I did some close inspecting and noticed that the Data + and 5V pads on the Tinkerboy had been bridged with a poor solder job. I just refluxed, sucked the solder and re did the solders and it works!! Also your idea of resetting ES controls worked as well. So now I have a working GBZ with working...

Re: Awful At Soldering To Pi

So with Tinkerboys custom image, I managed to get the controls to work. However, It eventually goes into Emergency Mode and I can't do anything. The add on USB port doesn't seem to work, most definitely user error, will look into when I have time. So because the USB doesn't work, and the pi goes int...

I can get power to the pi through the Tinkerboy, and the screen goes on and it runs off the battery alone. Now I haven't tried the USB port on the...

Awful At Soldering To Pi

So I'm building my first GBZ and the build is going ok. Apparently I'm terrible at actually soldering to the Pi and have pulled both USB pads off.
