Oh i didn't realize this was a screenshot from February. Yea, back then we didn't have the compendium so it was all guesswork. Now that we have the compendium, the trimming guide, and portablizemii, we know exactly how everything works and where to cut.
But for its time, it was an impressive trim. Consider how far we've come: @Aurelio hadn't cracked the WiFi module yet. WiFi still needed to be wired up for the board to boot.
PortablizeMii had not come out. The SD card and Disc drive board were still required to play games
We had no idea what was going on in the center layers of the board.
We had NO IDEA what the U9/U10 chips were, what they did, or why those "5 pin fuckers" were needed. @cheese had not pulled off the MX chip yet and we did not know that it wasn't needed for most purposes
