    Hey there, I’ve been working on an Ashida and recently trimmed my motherboard and have been having issues getting it to start.

    Question Wii trim heats up but no composite signal

    This is my second attempt at an Ashida. My last trim worked at first, but this one not so much. I’m using U10 emulation with the PMS-lite and my voltage line resistances are good. The CPU heats up when the board is powered on. I cut too close to the audio pre-amp area, but I don’t believe that...
  3. Question Wii trim not outputting video test

    Good day everyone. I will try to explain this as well as possible. I want to preface this by saying that this is my 3rd ashida build. I trimmed the Wii and tested the resistances like usual. All seemed well there, with the exception of the 3.3v being around 7.4k. Anyway, I soldered a test...

    Question Ashida case color opinions

    I know it's a pretty subjective thing but I was looking for some thoughts on potential Ashida color schemes. I have ordered most of the parts to begin the build outside of the shell which I am still undecided on. I do plan to buying a good quality resin print from either PCBway or Craftcloud...

    Question [HELP] Ashida has lines on bottom of display every few boots

    Hello everyone! I recently finished my Ashida, and I’m super happy with it! There's just one issue I’ve been pulling my hair out over, and I would like some advice on troubleshooting it.

    Will RVLoader run from the micro SD on a PMS PD 3?

    I already posted about this in the welcome thread, but I doubt that will be seen by the people it's aimed at, so - AFAIK, RVLoader doesn't work from an SD card, but the PMS PD 3 board only supports a micro SD card. It does mention that the SD card then shows up as a USB drive on your PC if you...

    Question How should I go about building my first portable?

    So first off, I'd like to say hi and thank you in advance for any advice given. I'm trying to decide between making an Ashida for my first build, or use some of the boards made for the Ashida and use that to make a more original portable (Simply because I like the idea of designing my own...
