Nice! Don't forget to cut the little metal prongs off the mode button that should help it close

That and it looks like your USB c connector needs to be cut out more so that it sits lower.

If your mode button isn't soldered in the right position when you tighten the case the mode button gets pinched and won't release so the menu stays on. Unfortunately you need to open your case back up

I checked the mode button but it isn’t pressed ... did I miss anything else ?

With the case open is the menu still stuck on? Is the button shorted out so the software thinks the button is pressed?
