Typo on my part. It's fixed. I like to keep 1 one the when preorders begin just so people can see when it has a little bit of history to see if it has changed. Thanks for the spot though.

So I figured I'd post what you NEED to buy for the v3 so people can get ready a bit and also throw a little more info to the FAQ.

You will need:
  • A tin (Altoids or whatever)
  • Raspberry Pi Zero (W)
  • A Micro SD Card (8GB or larger)
  • A Soldering Iron with Thin Tip (I use 63/37 thin Solder)
  • Some Soldering Skills and might be good idea to get the mintyPi Practice Boards
  • 3D parts with the Rubber Buttons I had custom made (Wermy will be selling both 3D parts and Buttons, I will not)
  • Some M2 screws (M2x3mm ,M2x4mm, M2x8mm), Wermy will include these with his 3D parts so not needed unless you Print Your Own parts
Optional:
  • Cell Phone battery if you live outside the USA or want to buy your own (dimensions mentioned in this thread, 4 pin battery like S3 Mini)

that's it, if it's not listed here then you will not need to buy it.

Perhaps a foolish question. As "that's it, if it's not listed here then you will not need to buy it." is written. Will I not need any adhesive or additional wiring at all? There's no mention of a speaker that I can see either?

Thanks!

If it's not mentioned then it's included like the speaker and no wiring is needed (except the speaker) in this just like I said above if not mentioned not needed. 8-)

Everything is soldered to the board including the Pi that you have to do, only thing that needs wiring is the Speaker and that will be 2 tiny wires.

In fact it’s a LEGO MintyPi :lol: just assemble it yourself :mrgreen:

Very impressive ! You pushed the limit way beyond what we could expect.

Now people will have no excuse to mess the build :lol:

NOOOOOO!!!!

The pi is and always will be the hardest part of this or any mintyPi build, so get those practice boards because as I have no intention of selling one board or another because people mess them up.

Ok. I'll be the dummy and ask.....

By "like an S3 Mini".

Did you mean galaxy s3 or galaxy s3 mini? Or both? So they use the same battery in either?

Just asking as i have a spare S3.

Thanks. Looking forward to one I cant flub like I did the other 2. lol

Take some measurements and compare to what is said on the first post of the thread and I meant a galaxy s3 mini but many other kinds will work it all depends on the size and thickness of the battery.
