    Question 3DS Repair, any common problems?

    Hey guys, just wanting to comb the net for some knowledge! I just bought a non-working original 3DS (don't ask me why I'm not working on the slimboii) and from checking around on ebay it seems like the problem is somewhat common: When pressing power, the blue light comes on, and after a second...

    PCii Mk Absol

    Just to keep it simpler haha. The daughterboard has volume buttons on it, and when put into position one was already right up against eject, so I just ran wires to it instead of making another entire mount and switch on the power button. I also tried to power the front LEDs from the actual...

    Do you mean an internal ssd instead of or along side of a disc drive? As far as I know there is no way to mount any other type of storage to the disc drive connection...

    Worklog The Slimboii - Passively Cooled Wii Portable

    Looks like Wii have an update! (don't worry the rest is cringe-free) Finally got the aluminum part of the case milled for free at college, so those memes are attached. Little chonkier than I was expecting, but this is as thin as a portable can get with 18650 cells. There are little bits of...

    Worklog First wii portable for final paper

    A 6-layer draws quite a bit more power and therefore needs more cooling, so a 4-layer is highly recommended and will greatly increase the usability of the portable. The 4-layer is not much harder than the 6 to trim, only the bluetooth relocation comes to mind where you need to scratch off solder...
