I'm starting my first portable after doing a lot of reading and finally getting enough money to build one. I'm saving a real name for my portable when I make one of my own design. I have ordered all of my parts from AliExpress and am waiting for them to arrive.
I will be trying to make a detailed worklog of everything that I'm doing so that other people can reference it for help.

Here is my Parts List

I just started my G-Wii too! It's definitely a very interesting and fun thing to make.

Day 2
Today I rewired everything up inside my case, and tried to do the 5v mod on my screen. After I did the mod my screen wouldn't accept video input for some reason but it would load to the blue screen. Sparkle bear tried to help me in discord but I had already put everything away by that time. Also i found that cutting the pins on the connector on the video board and than heating up the solder and taking out the pin entirely was the easiest way to remove the video connectors on the board.

Day 3
Today I basically spent almost all of my time figuring out why my screen wouldn't accept video input and I found out I had burnt the av2 pad, so I had to follow the trace up to the first solder able point on the board that was a tiny resistor right above it. I also wired up USB to the Wii following the guide on how to make a twisted pair of wire. Its all wired up now and works!!! So that's nice. I still have to wire up controls, audio, and switch to VGA which I hope to do this Saturday.
