I read all the instructions. I understand how to flash the updates once things are running... but flashing the original (from bare bones display) that requires python? Uh, nope. That's beyond my comprehension and I'd probably brick somewhere.

His instructions are good, it's just I've never used python. I think the closest I've come to is twiddling with a raspberry pi, but that was with baby step instructions! Even then I'd need his license.

Good thing I'm not in a hurry.
Ive got two spare boards here. I just don't have a case and my 3d printers are out on loan to a buddy.

I can flash one and send it your way (shipping or otherwise as I believe you're from my neck of the woods)

LOL. Yeah python is a bit of a learning curve for non-tech guy. Lemme see if i can get someone to flash it for you. πŸ€“πŸ€“

I dabbled inpython back in my Recruiting Buss days. I was setting up OPENCATs on my Ubuntu Server.

A freeware app that did what the BIGBOYs Recruiting Apps and SAAS providers did for a HEFTY cost each month. Anyways i was using
Other's INT'L Guys' python-coded apps to make it great and similar to the mo'ly pd apps!!

BUT ... admittedly one F' up since i believe we sre perma-coding yhe PROM, Squirrel himself stated ... paraphrased.
"" You get ONE shot "" ... and I dont trust myself w/o At least doing it once.

Lemme see if i can get someone to flash it for you. πŸ€“πŸ€“

Thanks Benzr! I'm working with Squirrel for just a board; It'll save me the trouble of being an unwitting brick factory.

I'll probably try my hand at DIY my own case.

And is it bad I still see your posts in multiple colors? I need my eyes checked.

Will that include cases for those of us who, uh, might only have the screens?

Or is there another source for those? Just keeping my options open.

NAILED IT!

I also noticed 5V and G pins. Was thinking I could power this thing via USB supply leads or a nice 12V-5V converter. I probably have a few lying around, or a donor USB cord. You know, to bypass the slightly bulky USB-C plug for power?
