    Yes but it likely won't be ready for a few months due to a lack of availability on parts.

    I'd definitely be interested in one of these as well!
    Will these be available through the store once finished or direct purchase through Aurelio?

    This is yet to be defined. I probably have to modify the design slightly to compensate the lack of regulators from TI, then I will first start ordering the batch of boards for the people who helped me buying the latest prototypes.

    Hello fellow BitBuilt users,
    I am not sure whether this is the right thread for this (I'll delete it if it isn't) but I have a question kind of related.
    NOOB ALERT:
    Would it be easier to use a 6-layer board and custom reg with TIs (but relocation of Bluetooth easier) or a 4-layer with PowerMii, but the Bluetooth relocation a bit iffy?

    P.S. Literally just created an account to ask this, so sorry if I'm lost

    If you're worried about relocating Bluetooth then you definitely shouldn't drop $100+ on a board that requires very fine and precise wiring. Aurelio clearly statedsthat this is not a noob friendly board. A separate thread would have been a better place to ask this in as well.

    Hey! First time poster here! I'm trying to build my first portable.
    Could you provide me with the gerber file and the according part list?
    Thanks

    Aurelio has said that he will eventually open source this project, but as of yet he has not done the testing that he needs to in order to make sure PowerMii works as it should. They board files and parts list would also be pretty useless without the software needed to make the board function properly.

    Also, this is a super difficult board to assemble. Even Aurelio had issues assembling the board by hand and ended up getting the first prototype from a manufacturer instead.
