    Worklog Creamsicle G-Wii rev 2 "Shwii" Worklog

    Your wire is WAY too exposed and can easily short out components and fry the PMS or other components.

    Littlehat's "enhanced" g-boy clone worklog

    A bit of a broad question, but there is more than enough information here on the forums if you browse around and read some worklogs to see how others did it. There is also a wii trimming guide that covers everything to do with the motherboard preparation for a portable. A portable is not easy to...

    Dang, looks crispy. For your RGB to HDMI circuit, did you reverse engineer the pound or hyperkin cable or something?

    Holy... incredible. I can see how much work went into this and planning. Really awesome! Do you have any gameplay shots with that screen? I'm curious to see how the games look being scaled on a 1080P screen

    The Maybe UltraMini Portable Wii

    This worklog is really awesome. I'm actually going to be using the GL832K as well, love the circuits simplicity with only 4 caps! I'm hoping it can run off 3.3v. Have you tried running it off 3.3v by chance?

    Prototype 99% done Honestly, building a rough draft prototype is double the effort since you then need to transfer all the internals to the final product, but it’s super helpful to see all the flaws when put together.

    Worklog PriiMiium

    I’ve decided to first build a prototype to make sure all the fitment and functionality is there. Maybe will be the final version if looks good enough haha. Thanks to the 4layertech team for those cascaded edges, as I was able to wire all the power lines from the under side of the board for tidy...

    It is a 1mm copper plate I bought off eBay a while back and just cut it to size. It was something like this but wasn't exactly this one since I bought it a couple years ago.

    Worklog PriiMiium

    Received my boards today and populated them to realize I read the schematic of the ffc connector wrong that connects the two controller boards together, so now the ffc cable plugs in from the opposite direction lol. No big deal, I will replace the ffc with a different one that will work with...
