I had a question about the board. It looks like the screen on mine is off by ~2 mm from left to right with a noticeable slant when looking at it straight on. How is the screen attached and can I easily reseat the screen or will I break something if I try to remove it? Any thoughts?

Thanks

Has anybody tried a 2.8"-screen? Which one is recommended?

Hello, I just assembled my gaboze pocaio and I made this drill hole helper, since I did not wanted to drill over the pcb (since I did not had an 1mm drill), thanks for making the project opensource!

Just saw this thread and noticed that the last posting was awhile ago. Was there a pre-order? Was it already released? Did I miss this?? :(

Yeah these were sold a while back now, for pocket builds now your options would be, the pocket pi Fe kit by galaxy gaming, they recently did a thread here or you can check their site, or, ordering blank gaboze PCBs, then ordering the BOM and assembling by hand.

No worries! I ordered two of the kits from GalaxyGaming, just waiting on the shipment now. Thanks for the reply! :D

Is it possible to use a Banana Pi Zero instead of a Raspberry Pi Zero? It should have the same size but a lot more power?

I've one more question:
I try to order all needed parts for the PCB. Is it needed, that the resistors have a tolerance of 0.1%? I'm from Europe and an order from Digikey is very expensive. Is it possible to get all these parts from Aliexpress too?

Yes, tolerance isn't too important for these.
