SLowly getting there. Only thing missing atm is the following:
Install speaker and amplifyer
Position the screen in correct place and hot glue it to place.
Change screen settings in configs file.
Wire up all the buttons to the GPIO pins
Small wire cleaning.
I use a 1 cell 18650 charger to charge the 2 18650 cells. That is then connected through a power switch ( used the original one positioned in the volume slot ) and then to a dc-dc conerter that takes the voltage up to 5.2 volts.
The LCD i could use on 5 volts without any mods so i got lucky 🙂
Need to put the micro usb connector on straight later. But really happy that the case closes perfectly. Atm its just closed with 2 pieces of black electrictape but will be closed with screws later on 🙂
Soon time to start on the second one. After i showed pics to my friends i got a few orders 🙂
I just started something similar with a 3D printed case. I’ll actually be using one of those cheap usb snes controllers and soldering the leads directly to the pi rather than messing with the GPIO pins, maybe something like that would be an option for you.
