Hey guys, here is a small project I just finished. Had nowhere to post a worklog, but in this forum it might be in good hands :)

Finished Design:

The assembly is rather easy, but just in case I made a video that guides you throughthe process:
Here are some pics of the mainboard and its pinout that I figured out. It may not be complete, but it is all I needed:

Note that the + and - on top of the mainboard are from the batterie. You can not power it from there with 5v (it will fry the board) or with 4.2v, because of a safety feature on the GoPro. However, if you have a third party batterie and want to use the protection board from it, you will have to solder to this pins.
But it might be best to go with 5v instead and solder it like in the following pictures. You only need ONE 4.7k resistor, I just marked multiple points to solder it to.
