    Question 6-Layer trim shows some signs of life and then remains black screened

    Yea the red wire is connected from that capa to send the 5V to the USB since the trim process cut the internal 5V copper track

    Question OverBoost the Nintendo Switch

    I'm on a project of boosting a Switch to the max with upgraded cooling (so no temp issue B|). So I use a V2 (Mariko), since it consume and heat less and the GPU can theoretically go to higher clock than the V1 (Erista). I'm on latest FMW (16.0.0) and latest Atmosphere For OC I use...

    A tip: use the holy enameled copper wire for small vias, it's much more easy, and with this you don't risk to break the solder or worse the vias or the track by moving the wire. 0.1 to 0.15mm work well for signal wire, bigger is too rigid. Of course before soldering it is necessary to tin the...

    Good news the motherboard is not dead ! For booting the 360, a connected HDMI or video cable is needed, but that was not the problem here. In fact I had just forgotten to color a part which is connected to the 3.3V and which powers the southbridge. So of course I had forgotten to connect it...

    PCBs are working perfectly ! Who wants a slice of 360? With the new PCBs I can remove this part and it works ! 100% on battery so Portable ! Then I analyzed and reconnected all the wires needed to cut out this other part, but after a lot of testing and research no boot. The southbridge is...

    Here is my last video, I talk about all my attempt : To sum up : 1-NAND Relocation : Thanks to @YveltalGriffin advice, I managed to get the NAND relocation working. The issue was : crossing the wire. For high speed signals the wires must not cross each other, and need to be same lenght...

    Worklog An attempt to recreate the PS2 PCB

    Glad it could help you on your amazing project ! I really like the design, and the dimensions are really small, can't wait to see what's next :) I really like the mindset of making what many people think impossible possible ;)

    The CPU VCS on my VRM PCB work fine, But my custom VRM didn't work for the moment, So after few test for measuring PWM signal or other signal, I got a things like short circuit at the main voltage for no reason. To see if it comes from my VRM I cut the VRM of a dead MB and put it in place...

    It is not 100% of battery, the big VRM that power the XCGPU are powered with the 360 PSU. But it is the next step :)

    Xbox 360 is on a diet again ! I receive my custom PCB, so for now the PCB with the "low" power side work great, all regulator are fine. And the circuit that manage the power path and the batterie charging look to be ok (after some difficulties of course). The power ON/OFF latch circuit work...
