Man, waited a few weeks for my sx core, but when it arrived today it was just the hwfly core :'(
Paid a premium for the sx version as well.
Will ask for a refund, hopefully I can get it back from aliexpress

Now its back to the internet to search for sx version

I heard that the hwfly cannot update to spacecraft nx version 2 and that spacecraft nx version 1 is not good for the OLED switch
well hwlfy core is using ver 1 but I think the lite version using ver 2. I have no complain using it so fast booting into menu and almost never failed

I ordered 950 flex boards for $150 at pcbway (approved, manufacturing, don't have them yet) so that comes at less than 20 cents a piece. Not sure if I'd agree that a x75 markup for small quantities constitutes a "fair price". When mine arrive I'll dump most for probably €1 a piece.

At the moment I only took one then let's see how it fits

So, what about that bespoken DAT0 issue with HWFLY Core chips and the OLED. Is is true? I mean, do we need to disconnect DAT0 every time (or eventually) when booting the console?
Can anyone confirm or deny it? Is is an "urban legend"? LOL


I'm asking because my Lite stash is done and I've some Core laying around here and I still have 2 OLEDs to do. :)

Also, I've seen someone posting how we should install Core.
Does anyone have this pic at hand?

Thanks!

It was reported that the HWFLY core has the same issue as the first release SX core and that some users who have installed it on the OLED need to disconnect D0 every time they boot the device.

So, it's almost like gambling?
You'll never know when you'll end up with one of those some? haha!

Anyone here from Canada? Just got a DHL SMS saying I need to pay $36 for import duties for the pcbway order. Crazy. How do they calculate $36 import duties for an order that cost only $109? Is the import duty at 30%+

It could have been worse... you could have received a 70% duty import if you were from Brazil. LOL

I feel you! It seems completely random, right? Somethings here way more expensive and bigger pass fine where other are taxed. Who know what "criteria" they use, if any...
