Re: Gem screen brightness

Currently not, it's something that I would like to get working in the future.

2 questions,
1) How would one connect a Powerboost 1000 to a Raspberry Pi 4 to power it?

Helder sells a lovely little bit of tech that cranks out 3.5 amps, check his signature.

Re: Screen just flashes between RGBW

Have you tried reflashing a fresh image? I had to hard reboot a Gameboy Zero last night and everything worked just fine until I tried playing a game. SSH to back up my saves, install a new image, and everything is fine now.

Re: Is better or more descriptive documentation forthcoming?

Smoki86's build thread has plenty of info to go by, that's what I used for a reference.
