I received the first of my prototypes yesterday. Still waiting on the next (I made some minor changes after ordering the first). I expect they will arrive in about a week. Once tested, a full batch won't take very long at all as they will arrive by courier. I'm hoping to have them ready for the start of the new year.
Getting pumped! How were your prototypes? I read something about issues?

@incontrasttogray I'm getting kind of anxious to receive them myself. The boards have been fabricated, I'm just waiting on assembly now. A couple of weeks at the most.

There was an issue which meant the system would stay fully powered after a low battery shutdown. The board now uses the LBO pin to enable to PowerBoost, meaning if the battery is below 3.2v it can't power on. It's taken a little longer than I would have liked, but better to fix the issues before they go out the door.

Can I retrofit this into the GBZ if I follow Wermy's original guide?

I was following his guide last year, buying up parts, then baby arrived and time...escaped me. So this is new to me (as is everything else, though).

I'm hoping to start building mine soon, and didn't want to wait for this to open up on pre-orders again to start.

Ta!
