    Hi guys,

    On the Wii PMS github I have uploaded the firmware v2. It is completely rewritten from the ground up. The old one worked fine however it was not so friendly to add in new features that I have been working on and was easier to just redo it now that I have a little more experience coding.

    Huge thanks again to @Aurelio for going through the code with me to do things in a better way.
    New features:
    Powered off charging indicator. The LED can be powered from VSYS and the microcontroller will periodically wake up every few seconds to check if the system is charging, so there is some delay time for the indicator to turn on when the system is off.
    Dynamic USB-C PD source negotiation using @jefflongo 's library. Now the USB-C board can be compatible at higher voltage with any USB-C PD charger.

    Starting Friday, all the WiiPMS in the store will have the new code. If you have one with the original firmware, it's not entirely necessary however I would recommend picking up a cheap PicKit3 to reprogram it. It's a great tool to have that you will end up using for other projects for sure.

    Are you programming with correct file? I have attached it just in case. You have to hold down the button for a good second. Any other details you can provide like pictures would help.
