I'm looking at buying an sd card, is 16gb to big for the board to read, I guess this should be enough for games to.

Is there going to be a video tutorial? For example soldering the connections for the back buttons, I'm totally new to this thanks.
The same back button soldering methods apply for the CSO and the SAIO. Instructions are up on the github and is super easy.
I was looking for this earlier in the day already, but i could not find any guide how to use tactile switches with the kite AIO or sword

Has anyone put together a bit of a shopping list in a post somewhere already? I tried searching around a bit but can't find anything where everything's compiled in one up to date list.

On page 1 of this thread there's a section labeled "additional parts required" that's what I used as a reference.

Soldering the back buttons is literally just the 'L1' wire and the 'GND' wire, I may put some pics up on the wiki but I assumed it would be pretty self explanatory :)

People here keeps asking over and over the same question before reading the OP where almost everything has been answered.
Then you have the wiki for the SAIO which gives more tips
https://github.com/kiteretro/Super-AIO/wiki

And finally the wiki for the CSO which is not fully finished but from my eye, already more than complete.
https://github.com/kiteretro/Circuit-Sword/wiki

Here’s wermy’s youtube channel to watch videos on how to tweak the shell
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRP1Zx ... wkB2Ov5pMw

For soldering courses, go to Abrugsch post. It’s very useful
https://www.sudomod.com/community-spotl ... ng-school/
Thanks to neolith for his contribution, he reminded me a great thread from inches about soldering and buying soldering tools
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=3024

People must understand that even if this build is going to be a breeze, YOU MUST DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE DIGGING INTO IT.

Stop asking what was already covered.

For extra needed parts, look here
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=4351

Which is nothing more than original post !!!

For any other issues, use the support forum for kite’s products
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=51

For inspiration about what to build, use the show off forum.

Shoulder Buttons
For shoulder buttons, you have erik_gee’s solution with DMG style buttons
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3805
Or erik_gee’s solution with tactile buttons
https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3364
You can also help goodBEan development for a 4 tactile switch solution
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=4624
You can also go DieselDummy’s solution with something innovative
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=5065
Or go the soft membrane way with HoolyHoo’s solution
https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=5103

Brackets
As for the bracket for screen and buttons and joystick, HoolyHoo is the master
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2553

And as for the bracket for kite's shoulder button pcb (free gift for all of us i kindly remind) wermy seems to be working on a 3D printed part that he will likely sale or give for free as a stl, it's up to him.
Kite's pcb can be used as it with some glue, it's up to you.

I forgot to mention kubino for a CNC cutting service for the shell
https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3309

As for the batteries, you can go with dextech 5Ah battery which will require heavy mods to the battery tray
https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2320
or go with a standard LiPo 125054 rated 3.7V@4Ah which requires no modification at all to the battery tray.

For special support about the non Kite designed stuff, contact creator.

I have created a FAQ for the laziest builders https://github.com/kiteretro/Circuit-Sword/wiki/FAQ

What else ? Have a coffee and read everything.
I’m locking this topic because it’s becoming everything except something.
