    The Pyra Puzzle

    This is great news, looking forward to the pyra. Can we get file system encryption in the standard OS this time? Edit: btw Hi guys, been a while :D

    Pandora shop in Paris. Selling Pandora units and spare parts + repairs.

    as far as the screen wearing out my bet would be on the UV ray damage from being out in the sun will damage the LCD much, much faster than the back light would wear out. c'est domage pour ton copain, meilleure chances dans ses prochain projets.

    Hardware modification: hold screen at an angle

    it uses the normal hinge, that's the beauty :D takes about 10 to 20 seconds to carefully grind the pins in the case's socket. could be offered as an option, could be included in repairs. but I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, it doesn't hold the lid closed or fully opened with any force...

    Hardware modification: hold screen at an angle

    that's not possible, if the NDS had 2 hinges locking mechanisms there would be nowhere for the LCD and speaker cable to go.

    hmc Hardware Hack #2: Hinge modification for laptop-like use

    there are 4 notches in the hinge, those 4 notches match the 4 "pins" in the lid. removing 2 of the pins lets you re-insert the hinge rotated with the pins fitted into the "wrong" notches. old (orange) and new (green) way it fit after shaving off the 2 pins: so the hinge/lid are still held...

    Cpu speeds.

    you can leave it at the maximum stable speed, the power drain difference is insignificant. The power saving is pretty good when the CPU is idle and you can press the power button to put the Pandora in sleep mode which lasts for days. mine (a 600Mhz model) is set to 950Mhz and I never touch...

    Hardware modification: hold screen at an angle

    Why would I buy a DS lite hinge when I can use the Pandora's stock hinge for free ?

    hmc Hardware Hack #2: Hinge modification for laptop-like use

    way too much drilling for my taste. simpler, less damaging solution with no external changes: http://boards.openpandora.org/index.php/topic/12059-hardware-modification-hold-screen-at-an-angle/ http://rv6502.com/index.php?blog=00000014

    Hardware modification: hold screen at an angle

    A different hardware modification than previously posted. does not change the external appearance much less drilling (you don't touch the base, just the inside of the lid's back half) no epoxy glue it does not damage the hinge it can be disassembled again and you can restore the hinge to its...

    It won't shut down!

    or put a setting to disable the wait script for the few devs who remote to their pandoras ? would be better to have the devs disable it than have everybody else's pandora do a write/delete temporary file on each reboots. OMG THE NAND!!!!1111!!!! :P devs know what's up with the charger as a...

    It won't shut down!

    pseudo code for shutdown script: if charging_cable_plugged then     display "charging.png"     while charging_cable_plugged do wait; end if for init script: if charging_cable_plugged then     display "charging.png"     while charging_cable_plugged && !power_button_pressed do wait;    ...

    Trying to get my pre-order refunded

    This is bullshit. Selling imported game consoles isn't illegal. Sony got paid for those consoles, what people do with them afterward is none of Sony's business. If it was illegal, it'd be the government going after people and companies, not Sony. The fact that Craig's company didn't have the...

    Idea to break the impasse

    I paid money, received nothing, and I'm asked for almost the same amount ( double price total! ) in order to (supposedly) finally get the Pandora I ordered. you judge. the question Seeeejaaaay asked is: why are people so against upgrading to 1ghz units?

    Idea to break the impasse

    ... really, you gotta ask ? because "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me." I gave money to Craig and got nothing in return, yet. I'd feel stupid giving even more money. ever heard of "bait and switch" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bait-and-switch ? and that is considered...
