I have soldered the UAMP to the Ashida pcb, but I have one question. Does it matter if IR and IL solder joints are connected?

Looks okay to me but I would recommend to check if anything is shorted. S and DL may be touching from what I can see
I double checked them and they are fine and aren’t touching :)


EDIT:

This may be a silly question, but do i have to desolder these connectors from the driver board?

Got a new 128 to usb along with 28 and 38 awg wire and also a wire stripper (obviously for the 28 awg wire). I’m going to start testing everything and wiring up the wii.

I trimmed my Wii and got my resistances, however when looking at the 1v resistance, it seems to be very low. I think this is due to applying too much heat when soldering my rvl ntc. Even though the resistance is very low, should the ntc still be able to run?

Update: I let the solder on the 1v lines flow for a bit longer and checked the resistances again. Luckily the resistance went from 8 oms on Wednesday to 40 oms today. I got lucky there hopefully my board is fine for now Also my dad bought me some joystick boxes and the 21700 batteries and my digiky and mouser orders came so i populated my Ashida boards.

Alot has happened since last post. I got my case and soldered the pms lite and the pms pd. I wired up the battery contacts and then soldered them to b+ and b-. I soldered in the fan as well and it was working fine. The next day i was showing my little sister, but instead of it turning on the 2R2 component on the PMS-LITE started smoking and one of the capacitors popped. If i removed the popped capacitor should the pms be able to supply power to the components now?

Magic smoke is never a good sign. Disconnect the batteries immediately, take picture of the board, and post them here.
