If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

So no one noticed my faux pas. :oops:

I got the GND and VCC arrows the wrong way round in the photo. I'll update the photo shortly.

Or were we all so used to fitting unf*ck mods that we thought youd get there eventually?

:shock: :lol:

OK - original pin to pin photo updated correctly.

Now that I got the pins round the right way its been a lot easier. I can put the USB socket on the top by lifting up the centre pins and soldering them to the board with wires. The rest of the USB socket just goes in as is.

If its integrated to the Remake then may be headers so that one of these could be used
