I did a few. The orange and black is what I landed on for myself but the Beemo one is probably my favorite.
Hey, I tried building one of these and am having trouble getting it to show on the pitft screen. There is something i am missing i just dont know what. Can you help ? Is the PocketGrrl image supposed to be just plug and play ? I can get the image to run on my monitor through hdmi but cant get it to the tft screen. The tft screen just lights up and nothing happens.
Hey Alex. Yeah it should be plug and play. Flash the image again and see what happens. It uses frame buffer copy so it still exports via HDMI regardless.
Hmm okay i will give it a shot, i seem to keep getting a blank light screen when i try to boot up. thanks for the help.
so there was something wrong with my original tft screen i got a new one and got it working now. only thing after i soldered it together i forgot i remember cutting wire 18 on the back. Can i ask did you do this ? do you know if this needs to be done ?
Definitly go back and do that otherwise one of your d pad buttons will disable the backlight.
