I think this depends on the way ED put them in: he mentioned on this old video
That he try’s to clue them on the Keymat to avoid the noises.. but seems like I ditnt follow the right sources..

All the assembly photos with black and dark chrome cases in them look like something out of Star Wars <3

Are the D-pads moddable so you could fit rubber ones if you wanted to be an OTG stealth gamer?
I believe they might be actually, though for the rubber, it would have to be custom molded.
If i can find a way, i'd drop in microswitches

even the smallest true micro switches will likely be too big to cram in that area. And a lot of small profile micro-switches utilize the same style conductive rubber compound as the current D-pad so it's not gaining you anything.

Whe don’t know how good the dpad actually is, you can feel free to modify it, therefore it’s cool that the Pyra is easy to open

But I don’t want to open my Pyra..

The reason why I had to open my Pandora was to fix a shoulder button because these foam pads wherend the best solution
And to change the bottom part to get a 2 colored Pandora..

Not sure, but I think we have a breakthrough on the charging problem.

Yes, and the result is 9c, so this is indeed what's resetting the
value!

So it seems it's not disabled in the U-Boot version we're using.

Could someone update that?
Thanks :D

In the mailing list, daveshah goes on to say that the latest U-Boot already corrects this problem, to which ED replies that aTc couldn't compile the latest U-Boot, so it must not be in a finished state.

It's slow, but it's progress.

What is the issue exactly: dosnt it charge when the Batterie is too low, or dosnt it charge at all?
My Dark Chrome Nr28 is physical save because ED made 49 preeasamblet, and want to make 50 Black tomorow..
I hope that i can still fulfill the Preeorder in the next few days so im still in Vacations when the Pyra arrive..

It's a problem with the temperature readout on the battery, the charge chip keeps thinking the battery is about to catch fire when it is only actually slightly warm and restricts the amount of current it'll take in.

Maybe in the first few weeks until the issue is solved, would it help to just use the Pandora Battery, charged in the Pandora and padded a bit because it’s shorter?
I mean it’s 2000 mah less, but I can remember it’s pin compatible
Edit just looked on the Mailing List Archiv and seems like 2 A charging work, but 3 A is to much

Edit 2: the Power Supply from the Old Iphones have 1 Ampere (5W), so not enough, my USB Desktop Power Supply from Anker is 3 Ampere, so not usable until it got fixed, but i found a Power Supply whit exakt 2 Ampere at Home which could work

Most probably shipped units will come with a script to limit charging current to 2A or something. There will be no need to use low powered charger.

I ditnt try to charge my Pandora via Mini USB, i only had a USB to Barrel Jack Cable from an old Powerbank which ditnt work..
On Pyra, i have the Charging Cable whit Micro USB whit me as this is part of my EDC..
I can finaly take the 3,5 # Audio Adapter out of my EDC because the Pyra takes Headphone Jacks whit the "Apple Standard ".. ^^

Mini usb charged much slower, but it was nice to have.

That said I'm not worried about only having the micro usb.

Stops charging because the charger chip resets itself after ca. 40 seconds into power-on-state which limits charging+operation current to 500mA. There seems to be a subtle difference between the LetuxOS U-Boot and the PyraOS U-Boot which explains why I never had seen this same issue with charging.
