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

Also trying to use this update method, fixed the first problem (same as above for solder), now struggling with this: In file included from D:\Documents\Arduino\New GBZ Controller Sketches\GamepadNoAnalog-HID\GamepadNoAnalog-HID.ino:1:0: D:\Documents\Arduino\libraries\HID-Project\src/HID-Project.h:35...

Re: [Guide] Graceful shutdown switch without Pololu

Due to business trips I've not been catching up on all the topics over the last couple of months, but have all the components available since to build the graceful shutdown on my own. Now I see that the low battery indication is a new functionality, also considered in the printed board. As I underst...

Re: Tackling Graceful Shutdowns on the GBZ

Alright, I'll update when I can. In the meantime, I've got a short guide to post in the Hardware section. I want to test @Popcorn's dtoverlay=gpio-poweroff idea with first. @larsen2011 Yes. The circuit shorts EN to GND on the PowerBoost to keep everything off. After you slide the power switch to of...

Re: [For Sale] GBZ All In One PCB (Pre Orders)

Wow looks clean, great work you're delivering here! I've started to collect all the parts for my GB Zero, but I'm quite new to this. Do I understand that I don't need the Teensy anymore if I'd use this PCB? If so, where do you connect the controls (D-pad, abxy, start, select) on this board? (Are yo...

Re: PSA: Battery Safety

I'm planning to use the original charger port with an adapter and connect this only to the Powerboost while adding a USB port to helder's AIO PCB for data, without the powerlines. If I use the connectors like you did, I could take out the LiPo but still use external power as it goes directly to the ...

Re: Tackling Graceful Shutdowns on the GBZ

Am I correct that this setup does the "work" but is not using a Pololu? So looking at the wiring diagram my understanding is that we have the one JFET, a resistor and the switch as components plus board and cables? http://i.imgur.com/g5zhCqO.png So this goes to EN and GND from the Powerboost as well...
