We're almost there. :)

I started wiring up all the necessary wires, resistors, caps and the oscillator to the ATMega328P-PU chip:

And then glued it in place:

Here is how everything looks so far:

Things left to do:
  • Safe-shutdown switch with necessary resistors
  • Solder the cart reader and glue it in place
  • Calibrate my DIY battery monitor to get it ready (lab bench PSU + runtime)
  • Put on the gorilla glass
  • Some software adjustments
Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to inform you that I am currently moving very far away, and therefore I am very busy.

UPDATE: I am still alive! My ISP is setting up my internet on the 19th of January at my new place, explaining my offline-ness.

If you write me a PM, I will very likely take some time to respond.

Also, my 2nd build will soon go on, so if you've been following it, please stay tuned! :)

Many thanks for your understanding!

Soldered the voltage divider for safe shutdown
Image

Then put it in heatshrink tubing
Image

Added the safe-shutdown switch
Image

Laid the wire to GPIO 4 with the divider

Image

Soldered a ribbon cable to the ends of the cart reader
Image

And glued it in place
Image

and then soldered it to the Pi's PP's accordingly
Image

Finished internals

Last few finishing touches left out:
  • Calibrate battery monitor
  • Adjust overscan/Aspect ratio/Text size
  • Raspi-config
  • Adding safe-shutdown functionality to GPIO 4

Battery monitor calibrated, safe shutdown implemented + working. Software options (cmdline.txt and config.txt) set up correctly. Display settings all set.

I can finaly close the gameboy! :)

So fast I get jealous of people who have all the parts. I started weeks ago and I'm still waiting on parts. I will have to try your safe shutdown do you have a schematic?
Tooo many projects!!!
