I switched to the newer version of 3DS joysticks so I could solder to the through holes without removing it from the case. You can see I also had to tilt the accelerometer (next to the Wii remote) at an awkward angle because it was calibrated wrong for some reason...

It's done :).

Final dimensions are 178mm x 96mm x 30mm.

I plan to make a gameplay video sometime soon to try to show off everything it can do. I'm excited!

Whats the difference?
Valid question :D. Here's a list of what the new one contains that the old one did not:
  • An internal screen that utilizes progressive HDMI video, not interlaced composite video
  • Fully digital video (no component to HDMI converters involved)
  • A touch panel
  • Seamless play and charge with one DC power supply, no smart charger needed
  • The internal flash drive is accessible through a mini USB port
  • A full-size USB port for any extra peripherals
  • Charge and power indicator LEDs with nice LED diffusers
  • A button for selecting the internal controller, not a switch
  • The left joystick can act as the D-pad when you're using the sideways Wii remote controller
  • A power button instead of a power switch
  • IR LEDs on the front
  • The capability to turn off the system by pressing the power button on an external Wii remote
  • A cooling system that actually works
And of course the inside is a lot cleaner and filled with fewer wires this time.

The casework finish looks flawless, I can't believe how clean it looks and the internals are inspiring. Really great job, Jackson.
Thanks :D. I'm sure I'll be saying the same thing about your GS2 when it's done.

also, is the HDMI one of those touchscreen HDMI? or is it just a digitizer the size of your screen?

It's a normal screen with a touch panel glued on. I am interfacing with the touch panel directly, so it has nothing to do with HDMI.

So power is still going through when you turn it off?
