Will a official post be set when it’s ready to preorder?, is there a possibility I can get an older PCB+screen set?
A post will be opened yes as soon as the V3 will be fully tested and ready for release.

As for the V2, you can’t have any, you missed them and they will likely not be produced again.

awesome cant wait for v3 to come out the only question i have (and might recieve flak for this) would it be possible to remove the headphone jack from the board without screwing anything up?
Of course you can, with the right tools, patience and skills !
But if it’s a 5 pin jack, you’ll need to solder a bridge wire to have the sound still going to the speakers !
i assume you couldn't just get a sound card like they did in v2 and do it that way?

In theory you could but there you are just making extra work for yourself, you could just snipping off the jack or not use it.

V1 and V2 boards are no longer produced, if you keep an eye on the forums you can occasionally find someone selling one

One of the few soldered parts you the end user will have to solder on yourself is the headphone jack (super easy) so you can skip it but you'll need to use a jumper wire where the socket was to get audio out to the speaker.

Reason it's not soldered on is simply to avoid any damage to the pcb during transit.

Retro PSU, 3.5A output!


Chat with me and other members


Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

That's awesome because I didn't want the headphone jack. Glad to see it's an option.

So I know the mintypi v3 will be about $80. But I want to know if that will be just the kit that Wermy will sell or with everything you need to build it(raspberry pi, battery, buttons, etc.)?

Just a few bits you may have overlooked...

Q: What parts will I need to buy?
A: The only guaranteed parts that you will need to buy (separately; I will add this clarification to the main post) are the Pi 0 (W) itself, 8 GB or greater SD card, and the tin itself (most people use an altoids tin). (Source) Any orders outside of the US will also need to source their own battery (see below). Rule of thumb right now is to not buy anything else until we know what we are getting.
I don't know about the 3d printed parts. I believe that those will be a separate charge also. I will try to get clarification on that. But I am sure wermy will release the STLs if you have access to a 3d printer.
