Is it possible to remap some pin of the dpi screen in order to use the uart or i2c? Did you get any possibility of communication with an arduino for example? (except for the USB)

Yes you can remap the keys but you have to edit the overlay and recompile it.

I think I'm done with the front half of the case. I can actually play with it now. Next will be the rear case for the battery, 5v boost, charger, l&r buttons, and the external USB port. Also I'm still figuring it out how to use a single RGB LED light for power on, charging, and low battery alert.

Yes.

Just find the overlay source at https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/tr ... s/overlays, edit and recompile by following the instructions at https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... uration.md.

Thanks!

Anyone knows where to get a proper usb game controller code for the Arduino Pro Micro? The one im currently using does not work well.
