Re: How to Program Helder's All in One GBZ PCB with Arduino IDE

If you're using my board then unless it's one of very older black boards there is no more sparkfun driver/bootloader used so you should choose the 5v Leonardo as your board.

Re: mintyPi Screen and Button PCB Set

When the parts are all sorted out to get kits assembled, Chinese New Year ends this Monday so that is when I can actually get info on parts. My LCD guy will only be back on the 23rd so atleast 5 days from now. Chill and wait till I announce it.

Re: De-soldering Button PCB from Raspberry Pi

Heat gun that isn't too wide meaning one in a hot air rework station can do it. What I do it hang the pi off a table and put something with weight on the button pcb and heat the GPIOs slowly across them all and keep doing that till it starts to melt and gravity will do the rest.

Re: Interchangeable battery in gameboy game cartridge?

Not unless you have a high capacity capacitor in the power line to hold a little charge while you do so. Likely better off have a switch to switch between the 2 with capacitor mentioned so it smooths any powrr spikes and also maintains a charge while switching.

Re: mintyPi preorder interest poll

And with that I will close the thread since I have enough feedback and I don't want a flame war starting.

Re: White Screen, Keeps Safe Shutting Down

If power isn't stable as you say then that's likely your problem, solder a wire from VCC to 5v GPIO.

Re: mintyPi preorder interest poll

I just posted above your posts asking, that next weekend likely the weekend starts on a Saturday in most parts of the world so look for a post about it then. I will likely post about it in this thread so subscribe to it so when there is a post an email will be sent you.

Re: Problems booting

Check the LCD test points against GND with the continuity test, you might have a short.
