Kite’s new 640x480 LCD BL BOOST importance

To those of you that have the new hi-res 640x480, and have soldered a bridge on the pads marked BL BOOSt; I was wondering how much difference it makes.

Re: Aluminum Case

Excited to see the cases arriving. I have a question about the screen area, is there any need to glue the screen in place, or will it stay put? Any need for glue at all?

Re: Circuit Sword Stealth Black
