    [UPDATE:] Seems already old news, sorry for that, but i keep the post, it includes nice pics [​IMG] )

    Today i recieved a samples for review from ConsoleSources.com of the EDGE

    So i wondered if womething was changed to the old EDGE and opened both, here is the result:
    (Wonder why the 2 legs are closed on the new PCB, that's all the difference i could find)
    (Tested the kernel and comp. nothing new or better)

    Blue is the new EDGE, green is my old EDGE

    Yeah, but all is identical except on the SST chip 2 legs are closed, that's all the difference i can tell :/
    Ow and it has a letter E on it [​IMG], wonder if it means Hardware Revision 1.1 E or whatever, or just E from English [​IMG]

    No need to be sorry at all, i didnt open my carts and took pics. I just figured by looking inside of the SD slot.
    Oh and by the way my 1st generation Edge dont have that 1.1 in the place or i cant just see it when i look inside the slot.
    Anyway would love to open the red PCB one but i need to resell em.

    One thing i wonder, why you need a review sample if you already have an Edge ?

    My EDGE has the bridged legs too, I was thinking of removing the solder, but now I won't. I wonder what it does.

    I also have seen red PCB's, and the green and blue you posted. They were all mixed together in the package i received.

    I want a blue PCB!!! D:!

    I got a gross green one.

    I haven't opened the EDGE cart at all, I can just see a little bit of green through the MicroSD slot.


    Also, sorry for "bumping" up an old thread.

    But it was still on the first page. So yeah o.o
